When you have connected your applications via Application Links, you can also connect the areas of those applications that contain information relating to your project or team. Using project links (also called entity links) you can associate one or more projects, spaces and repositories across the linked applications.
To connect all the information relating to the project or team that you are managing, you can link one or more of the following:
- JIRA projects.
- Confluence spaces.
- FishEye repositories.
- FishEye projects. A FishEye 'project' is the Crucible project if you have installed FishEye and Crucible, otherwise it is the paths associated via the 'FishEye Project Content' function in FishEye.
- Crucible projects.
Uses for Project Links (Also Called Entity Links)The following integration features use project links:
- Activity streams. For example, the project links determine the activity retrieved from JIRA to display in the activity stream of a FishEye repository or a Crucible project.
- The JIRA FishEye plugin. For example:
- The link between a JIRA project and a FishEye repository determines the repository searched for a particular issue key when displaying the FishEye source tab in JIRA.
- The link between a JIRA project and a Crucible project determines the Crucible project scanned for review activity when displaying the Crucible reviews tab in JIRA.
- When you create a defect in Crucible, Crucible will know which JIRA project to put it in.
- Third-party plugins may make use of project links to enrich their functionality too.
