Many companies already use Confluence for documentation – as a supplement to their Jira application. When Atlassian speaks of “integration of both systems”, it means first and foremost that requirements definitions and product specifications are maintained in Confluence. Links to the corresponding Jira processes are inserted at the appropriate place. In the opposite direction there is only the possibility to link from a Jira process to an existing Confluence page.
With the Teamworkx Issue Publisher, catworkx provides an app that can be used to trigger the creation or update of a Confluence page from a Jira application. Three ways of publishing are supported:
- Automated via a post-function during a status transition
- Automated for operation events, e.g. after updating an operation
- Manually via “Publish Issue” operation in the “More” menu of the task view
