Structure Gadget URL

Hi All,

    I have searched high and low and just cannot find the answer to this question. Need to add a Structure Gadget in Conlfuence. I'm following the instructions at https://wiki.almworks.com/display/structure/Adding+Structure+Gadget+to+Confluence+Configuration.

   However, I need to add an Application Link to this gadget. Does anyone know the URL for this application link?

 

Thanks,

  Randy

An application link is the general link from one application to another.  Shared resources then use that link and kind of know where they live.  (For example, if you application link a JIRA and Confluence, then the Confluence macros for JIRA know to look under <app link>/issue-data for issue information)

The url for an application link is simply the base url of the application.  If your base url for JIRA is http://somewhere/jira, then that's what you put into the Confluence to set up the link.

Thanks Nic.

I'm actually trying to find the Application URL for Structure Gadget. I've searched everywhere and can't find it.

Thanks,

I'm wondering if you need the "To find a gadget's URL in JIRA" section in this page (which is linked from the doc in your original question).

It says:

"To find a gadget's URL in JIRA:

  • Go to your dashboard by clicking the Dashboards link at the top left of the screen.
  • Click Add Gadget to see the list of gadgets in the directory.
  • Find the gadget you want, using one or more of the following tools:
    • Use the scroll bar on the right to move up and down the list of gadgets.
    • Select a category in the left-hand panel to display only gadgets in that category.
    • Start typing a key word for your gadget in the Search textbox. The list of gadgets will change as you type, showing only gadgets that match your search term.
  • Right-click the Gadget URL link for that gadget and copy the gadget's URL into your clipboard."

I think the last step is out of date, though. I think maybe the "Show XML link" link gives what you need.

For example (random gadget, since I don't have the Structure add-on):

Thank-you!

Looks like my Application Link was setup already.

I just needed to copy and paste the Gadget URL I got from the "Add Gadget " windows into the External Gadget settings.

Now works!

Thanks,

  Randy
