The new Pages feature in JIRA Software project
Platform Notice: Cloud Only - This article only applies to Atlassian products on the cloud platform.
Pages is a new integration feature for creating, storing & sharing all project related documentation. Pages is the one place in your Jira project where you can see all of the relevant Confluence pages your team is creating. It also provides quick shortcuts to create the types of documents most useful to your team.
Connecting to a space
When you have Jira and Confluence on the same instance, you just need to connect a Jira project with a Confluence space, and you're good to go.
Click on a template to jump straight to Confluence, where you can publish that key decision your team just made around the next product release or start work on defining what your team's next sprint is going to look like. As soon as you save a document it will be visible in the page tree, where you can browse your team's documentation in one place without ever leaving Jira.
Surfacing linked pages for sprints
In addition to the Pages feature, we also wanted to showcase an existing integration feature between Jira Software and Confluence - linked pages for sprints. Highlighted in the screen below is the old location and design of the linked pages feature on the Backlog page.
In a similar way to Pages, we now surface linked pages for users who don't yet have Confluence, with a polished redesign that also shows the value the feature can provide. Once users have Confluence installed on their site the feature will work as before, allowing them to create & link pages to their sprints, and view linked pages inline.
