Stop users from linking Jira issue to personal Trello board

I have a JIRA user that decided to link his personal Trello to JIRA from within Trello.
Now he creates links in JIRA tickets to a personal Trello board.

Is there a way to remove the access trello seems to have to our Jira?

Cannot find a connector or an enabled plugin in the Jira administration pages.

You can avoid this particular user create issue links by remove his link issues permission in the project permission

More restrictive policy is disabling at all linking:

Disabling issue linking


  1. Choose   > Issues.
  2. Select Issue Features > Issue Linking to open the Issue Linking page.
  3. A status message indicates whether issue linking is enabled. If issue linking is enabled, click the Deactivate button. The Issue Linking page reloads, stating that linking is disabled.

Thank you for the quick response.

It is not desired to disable all linking. Linking to other JIRA issues is a must. Links to Trello cause too much clutter.

I feel there should be more control for this in the admin panel.

Try to remove the user from the "Link Issue" permission

in his project "Permission Scheme" or better in a Porject Role
