When you want to integrate two Atlassian applications, you set up an application link between them. Applications linked this way can share information and access each other's functions. For example, if you link JIRA Software and Confluence, you can view JIRA issues on a Confluence page using the JIRA Issues macro. You can even link your individual projects, spaces and repositories across the different applications.

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

Configuration guide

The guide you're reading is for administrators who want to configure application links between Atlassian applications. The guide contains information on:

Troubleshooting guide

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 if you need a hand getting around any errors or roadblocks with setting up Application Links.

Developer resources

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

  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.
