Application Links (sometimes called "AppLinks") is a bundled plugin that allows you to link your JIRA, Confluence, StashFishEye, Crucible and Bamboo applications. Linking two applications allows you to share information and access one application's functions from within the other. For example, if you link JIRA and Confluence, you can view JIRA issues on a Confluence page via the JIRA Issues macro. You can even link your individual projects, spaces and repositories with each other, across the different applications.

The Application Links plugin is bundled and shipped with the Atlassian applications. You cannot install it yourself. 

Getting Started

The Quick Start Guide provides instructions on how to set up the most common application link configuration.

Administrator's Guide

The administrator's guide is for administrators who want to configure application links for the applications. The guide contains information on adding a new application link, configuring the authentication for an application link, setting up project links and more.

Developer Resources

These resources are for developers who want to develop with the Application Links plugin. Take a look at the Application Links documentation on the Atlassian Developers site.

Having trouble integrating your Atlassian products with Application Links?

We've developed a guide to troubleshooting Application Links, to help you out. Take a look at it if you need a hand getting around any errors or roadblocks with setting up Application Links.

  1. Heads up. All of this documentation under AppLinks sucks. It's full of inaccuracies and needs a major overhaul. Good luck

  2. Anonymous

    We have JIRA version5.0.7 buildNumber 734 applinksVersion3.6.4

    Now we as develop team want to upscale to Agile but the backbone still uses the standalone version
    Is it possible to link these 2 environments or Is it possible to upgrade only the Applinks to version 4.0 for the old one


  3. If an Application Link is configured in JIRA from the admin UI, am I supposed to be able to access that link from a plugin or do I have to configure a separate link which is only valid for my plugin?

    A developer tutorial on this topic would be really nice.
