If you have set up project links to more than one project in the same application, for example you have linked your JIRA project to two Confluence spaces, then one of the project links will be marked as the primary link. All outgoing requests will be directed to the primary link.

For example, if you have a JIRA project that is linked to two Confluence spaces, you can nominate the link to Confluence spaces as the primary link. Every time JIRA requests Confluence information, it will request it from the primary link's Confluence space. Note, both Confluence spaces can still request information from the JIRA project.

(warning) The information on this page does not apply to JIRA OnDemand.

To make a project link the primary link:

  1. Log in as a user with the 'JIRA Administrators' global permission and navigate to the administration page for the project. See Defining a Project for details.
  2. On the the 'Projects' page, choose the JIRA project that you want to link to another project.
  3. On the project's configuration page, locate the 'Application Links' section and click 'Configure Application Links'.
  4. Click the Make Primary link in the Actions column for the project link that you want to make the primary link. A checkmark symbol will display in the 'Primary' column next to the link.
    Note: The 'Primary' column and 'Make Primary' link will appear only if you have set up multiple project links to the same application, for example you have linked a Confluence space to a number of JIRA projects.
