link confluence page to jira issue

Can I link a link confluence page to jira issue? I am already linking Confluence pages to Jira...but I don't have an easy way to know if a confluence page relates to a jira issue(s).

hi.

read this article.

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Integrating+JIRA+and+Confluence

once this set up is done and running fine you are able to link confluence pages into any jira issue you like.

Some of this depends on your JIRA version .

When you are in the JIRA issue itself, you can use More > Link > select Confluence page >input the tiny link in the URL or search for a page. Recommend using the tiny link because if your confluence page moves, then the link won't break vs using the URL of the confluence page.

If you have issues in that it cannot locate the Confluence page, then you have to use the web link option instead of the Confluence page. We have a current bug that we are working on with Atlassian regarding this issue.

The other way that is supposed to work, but is dependent upon the version and it may or may not work for you is in the Confluence page itself. This page: https://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/overview/jira-users has a couple of items you may be interested in; but the one most relevant would be Automatically link isues to pages.

Again, there is a bug logged on this functionality as we cannot get it to consistently work.

Hope this helps.

I do not get an option "Confluence Page" under the link menue. There is only:

External link

Mail link

Anchor link.

Am I looking at the wrong menue? Is there a switch for the admin to do? The JIRA Macro within Confluence works though. We have both installed on a server.

@Stefan: I believe you were clicking on 'link' on the edit issue screen. Instead click 'more' and then 'link' when viewing the page.
