JIRA - Confluence Integration Setup

I'm attempting to put together a demo for deployment and engineering teams of the Confluence-JIRA integration specifically demonstrating the power of the Advanced JIRA Issue Insert Macro within product requirements documents in Confluence. Is it possible to do this with a trial version of both Confluence-JIRA? Really want to push the stakeholders into this solution but need to be able to demonstrate the capability. Thanks

Hi Seth,

Sure thing you can integrate JIRA and Confluence, even if you are using the trial.

See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Integrating+JIRA+and+Confluencefor more details. :)

Pedro, Thanks. I've got both JIRA and Confluence trial instances up and running, created an Application link in JIRA to my Confluence instance. Now i'm just trying to get the AJIIM add-on up and running and having some trouble. I've downloaded the add-on, obtained the license and am trying to upload the add-on but in my Confluence 'Manage Add-Ons' their is no option to 'Upload Add-on'. ??

Thanks Pedro! On the link you provided, to what does the 'common user base' refer?

If you will do that on demonstration machine - please check you have different dns names or different contexts. If you set up something like:

http://yourmachine:8080 for jira and

http://yourmachine:8090 for confluence - and will switch from one to other constantly inside one browser you will get annoying logoffs and login requests.

Thanks Alexey. I did set jira and confluence up as you described. I ended up having to select 'enable private listings' on my 'Manage Add-Ons' page in order for the option to 'Upload Add-Ons' to appear. However when I attempt the upload using the link for the AJIIM download i get the following:

The add-on at https://marketplace.atlassian.com/download/plugins/ca.nuum.ajiicannot be installed on this OnDemand instance.

Please note, that if you choose OnDemand version (hosted by Atlassian) - you will be limited with the list of plugins installed + special OnDemand plugins. If you will to use regular plugins you should choose standalone jira and host it by yourself. Please note that my answer relates mostly to standalone jira, as hosted (OnDemand) version handles these problems automatically
