The documentation you refer to describes how you set up application access and linking for unknown users. If you want known users to use it, application linking between JIRA and Confluence get you to the same point.

To make your knowledge base accessible for the Service Desk, go to the project settings of your Service Desk project and select knowledge base from the options on the left. There you indicate:

  • what Confluence instance and Space you want to link to as your knowledge base
  • set who can access and author the knowledge base
  • and for each Service Desk Request Type indicate whether the knowledge base should be searchable or not.

The last step ensures that your users get the popup automatically appears when they are typing in the search and create boxes of the request types on the customer portal.

To further refine this, you could even add labels to the kb articles in Confluence and restrict the articles being searched by adding those restricting labels to your request forms:

Thanks, @Walter Buggenhout [ACA IT]!

Actually, I already did what you said. When the user search and find a confluence article and click to read, the article is opening IN the page.

I'd like to open in a POP UP like this:

@Leonardo ZeferinoDid you ever figure out to route the confluence page to a pop up?
