How To Link Confluence Page To Jira

As companies expand, using a combination of resources to handle responsibilities, assignments, and records becomes increasingly crucial. Two particularly beneficial resources for this purpose are Jira and Confluence. Jira, a project management solution, enables teams to effectively strategize, monitor, and oversee agile software development projects. In contrast, Confluence is a collaborative wiki platform that facilitates efficient teamwork and information sharing.

Many organizations utilize both Jira and Confluence in their project management and documentation. However, the real game-changer is the ability to link Confluence pages to JIRA issues. This tutorial will guide you on how to do so.


Before we get started, please ensure that you have the following:

  • A Jira and Confluence account with administrative privileges
