This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: How to copy or rename a space in Confluence
If I import a space and link it to a JIRA project, can I later delete the JIRA project without affecting the Confluence space?
Yes. You can delete a JIRA project linked to a Confluence space without seriously affecting the space. The space will exist even after the project has been deleted.
The two actions–creating/importing a new space, and linking a JIRA project–aren't necessarily related.
The JIRA project exists outside of the Confluence space. The space and project can be linked, which provides lots of great benefits, but, generally speaking the two can exist without each other just fine.
However, any JIRA issues referenced in Confluence pages (for instance using a JIRA issue macro) might need to be linked again. The same goes for Confluence pages linked in JIRA issues.
In any event, you should still be able to put the URL of a page or issue in any page or issue, you just won't get all the nice things that come with it if the instances aren't linked.
As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
