Application Links (AppLinks) is a bundled plugin that allows you to link your JIRA, Confluence, FishEye, 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.
Note that the Application Links plugin is bundled and shipped with the Atlassian applications. You cannot install it yourself. Applications Links is bundled with FishEye 2.4, Confluence 3.5, JIRA 4.3, and all later versions of those applications. In addition, Bamboo 3.1 is compatible with AppLinks. You can configure JIRA-to-Bamboo links via the JIRA administration screens.
