Configuring a Link with Jira

Once Jira Snapshots for Jira is installed, you’ll need to configure a connection with the Jira instance from which Snapshots will be taken.

  1. Log into your Confluence instance as an admin.

  2. Navigate to Confluence admin area and select Atlassian Marketplace / Jira Snapshots for Confluence.

Be sure that this user at least has VIEW permission to the requested data. If you have Jira Service Management and need to include in Snapshots also JSM fields (like Request Types), then this user needs to have product access to Jira Service management.
