Jira 4.3 introduced the concept of whitelist.

On our jira instance we have the http link either to confluence or to sharepoint as URL for the project.

My question is As I am upgrading to 4.3 do we need to add all those confluence URls and sharepoint URLs in the whitelist?

Text on whitelist from Jira documentation

For security reasons, you as an administrator may wish to limit the URLs from which users can source content that is displayed on your JIRA site (e.g. in an External Gadget). The JIRA 'Whitelist' is a list of URLs whose content you wish to make available to users of your JIRA site.

You can add URLs (or URL patterns) to your whitelist as described below. Alternatively, if your JIRA site and users do not have access to the internet, you can choose to 'Allow all URLs' (see below).

Note that URLs for which Application Links are configured are automatically whitelisted, so you do not need to add them to this list.

The application link is only for Confluence, in case that you're using the external gadget, you will still need to add the URLs in the whitelist.

And it had been completely remove in the later verison of JIRA and replace by setting up the applicaiton link with the external server which provide the gadget source.
