What's the new Project "URL" field?

In Jira cloud, in a project details, there is now a "URL" field. I tried entering a random url like "", and even combinations of .com, adding .atlassian, etc.


But nothing works. Anyone have any details on this? It would certainly be nice to be able to edit a project's URL in cloud.

The project url is just a field for a url that the project can use to point to something else.  Most of us use it to point to a Confluence space for the project docs.

Could you please by any chance elaborate on how to set this up?

Edit the project settings, paste a link to your matching Confluence space into the field. 

It's not a clever or coded thing using an application link, it is just a url.  But some people find "Oh, project XYZ keeps its docs over at (a clickable)" quite handy.

Sorry i know this seems a little stupid but what would i use as a confluence space?

Thanks for the help

Confluence is Atlassian's wiki software - it's a good place to write documentation, notes, requirements, specs, actually, anything really, especially if you want to collaborate with others.  I even know someone who used it to write a book.

A Space in Confluence is a logical division of content, containing all the pages that you'd probably want to relate together.  A very common pattern of usage is to find a Confluence that has a set of spaces for Teams, another set for Products, a third for knowledge base and a fourth making up an intranet, for example.

Hi, I would like to know how I can make
"Oh, project XYZ keeps its docs over at (a clickable)" quite handy."
Where is the given URL displayed?

Thanks in advance, M.

Hey there, same question as Mel above - where would we see this URL typically?

Depends on the project type, but it's a lot less obvious nowadays, as many project's "landing pages" have changed from a project descriptor to be the board for the project.  For the most part now, you have to click on the project settings (non-admins of the project still get that, they can't edit)
