Read Write access application links

Hi there!


When setting up an application link between JIRA and Confluence it's quite easy to get the authenticate and allow - deny screen for read / write access. In JIRA link a Confluence page or in Confluence use the JIRA macro.


When doing the same for Bamboo / Stash or Bamboo / Confluence it's more difficult to get this page. Any ideas how to manually trigger this action? I can guess the URL but the token is invalid of course.

There is a page where you can see the current oauth tokens, you can only revoke them, not add new ones.

Hi Patrick,

I do believe this is the expected behavior of the application links in Confluence and JIRA. Are you using the latest version of the application links in bamboo and Stash?

The URL above wouldn't work as the token will change from the different apps, but I'm unsure if it's possible to find this token before creating the app link. I'll leave this question open so other people may know how to achieve this.



Yes this is expected behavior, I don't have any issues regarding setting up the application links. What I'm saying it's easy to get the Allow - Deny screen for a Confluence <> JIRA link but for other applications it's not always obvious how to go to that page. Stash <> Confluence Stash <> Bamboo (only in Bamboo when selecting a repository, from Stash to Bamboo, no idea) etc.
