Thanks again for any help.
JIRA is not forum software, it's an issue-tracker with a huge range of flexibility to allow it to do other things.
From what you've asked, it actually sounds like you might want (JIRA + Service Desk) + (Confluence + Questions). But it's hard to be sure.
As per your previous question, your best option is to try it.
To precise things a bit let's put a hypothetical story: You are a client using our company program (Tibco Spotfire). You encounter a problem, and you need a solution. You click on a button in our program and it links You to our company's confluence forum. If You are not able to find the solution then you can click on a button in confluence or our program which will allow you to create a ticket (by email or over webpage) in jira service desk (connected to our company's JIRA). Then someone from company solves the problem, and then as a customer you have the option to mark this ticket as solved. Is this possible?
Yes. I like the short simple answers :-) Although, Confluence is not really built for forums, it does have Questions (which is what we're using here). Not quite "forums", but it does the trick. The four systems acting together will do what you describe.
Apologies if this finds you a little late, I've only just seen your question. For your purposes, I would suggest you take a look at our forum solution, Community Forums for Confluence. Whilst it does not meet your requirements fully, it does provide an easy to use and deploy forum solution in your Confluence pages. With version 2.0 onwards, we've introduced searching, sorting and filtering of topics, as well as a number of additional features, giving you more flexibility as to how Forums works for you.
Community Forums does not currently have a Q&A style format and is better placed as a true discussion forum within organisations, however if you'd like to discuss your requirements further, please do get in touch and I'd be interested to understand your use case further. We're aim to continually improve our add-ons and welcome all feedback.
