This page tells you how to add applications to your Confluence site, so that Application Links will work between Confluence and the added applications.

(info) Before following the instructions below, please make sure that you have installed the Application Links plugin as described in the Installation Guide.

  1. Make sure that the application you want to add is running. For example, if you want to add Application Links between Confluence and JIRA, then both Confluence and JIRA must be up.
  2. Log in to Confluence as a system administrator.
  3. Go to the Administration Console.
  4. Click the 'Application Links' link. The 'External Application Links' screen will appear, as shown below:


  5. Click 'Add Instance'.
  6. The 'Edit Instance Details' screen will appear, as shown below:


  7. Enter the following information:

    Field

    Description

    Examples

    Application

    Select the application you are adding.

     

    Instance name

    This is the name of the application instance. We recommend that the instance name is kept unique across all instances to ensure that synchronisation will work. There is a current limitation for synchronisation that the instance be called 'confluence'. See APL-2.

    jira
    jira hr
    fisheye
    my-svn

    URL

    Enter the address of the application instance. Please make sure that the URL agrees with the base URL configured in your application. For Subversion, the URL is {{

    file:///

    }} plus the path to the SVN repository. (See the note about Subversion below.)

    Login, Password

    These are the login details for the application instance. They are not required for Subversion.

     

  8. Click the 'Save' button.
  9. The application instance has now been added into Application Links. The new application instance will now show on the 'External Application Links' screen:

Subversion Links Not Currently Used outside JIRA Studio

Application Links was originally developed for JIRA Studio, which uses the Subversion linking to associate the repository with the Atlassian applications. Outside JIRA Studio, there are currently no plugins that use SVN application links.

This means that, unless you are writing a new plugin to use the Subversion linking, you will not find it useful to add Subversion to your Application Links suite. It will not provide any extra rendering of links in JIRA or Confluence. To render links of the form source:<Filename>, you will need FishEye.
