Integrate your Atlassian Cloud apps

Atlassian Cloud is a hosted platform for multiple Atlassian applications, like JIRA Core and Software, Confluence, and Bamboo. If you have more than one application in your Cloud site, you can access each application using the application navigator  at the left of the header. If you don't have any applications linked, or only use a single Atlassian Cloud app, the application navigator icon will appear only for administrators; after you set up links, the application navigator icon will automatically be visible to all users.

On this page:

If you also have any Atlassian apps hosted on your own server, you can link them to your Cloud site for added functionality and convenience.

You can add custom links in the application navigator to make it easier for users to navigate to frequently used information with fewer clicks. You can also customize the links that appear in the application navigator, and restrict certain links to specific users and/or groups.

Add links to the application navigator

  1. Choose > Configure
  2. Create links by entering a name and the URL on the page
    After you've created a link, it will appear in appear in the application navigator for all your applications after a few minutes (up to 10). Or, if you want links to appear immediately, you can navigate to the application navigator administration page in each application and refresh the page.
  3. Optionally, enter team names to the Restricted to Groups field to restrict usage of the link

(info) When you make a link visible for a specific group, the link visibility is only set up in the application where you are configuring the link. For example, if you change the visibility in the JIRA administration screen and you also want it to be visible to the same users in Confluence, you must make the same changes in the Confluence administration settings.

To modify links that were created and are managed in other applications (for example, in a different JIRA application), click the Configure link to edit the link in that application. You cannot delete links to linked applications.
