Wiki page environment - JIRA


in our company we will start using JIRA for task and project management. How we can set up a wiki for documentation, is Confuence or JIRA offers this option?

Confluence is a wiki (albeit without wiki markup, so it's a bit of a blurry definition. But it's the place for free-format documentation)

Jira is an issue tracker. It's a good place to track stuff that needs doing, but not write documentation. Obviously, the two integrate quite well though...

I confirm:

  • Confluence is a wiki with a "MS Word-style" editor, so it's very easy to handle.
  • In Confluence, you can easily paste images of whatever product you're documenting, so it's the best place to put your documentation.
  • Also in Confluence, you can paste JIRA issues and lists and they're tied to JIRA (which is very useful for release notes: "All issues fixes in 2.2.1: ..."). The opposite is true: the JIRA issue mentions the Confluence page.

Ok, thank you very much. This is what I wanted to confirm :)
