If you have multiple Atlassian Cloud applications, Jira projects can be associated with work in the other applications, including:
Bamboo build projects
This makes it possible to automatically link issues, documents, project plans, and build results. You can also create application links to Server applications.
Before you begin
Ensure that you at least have access to create projects in Jira. If you have additional access to other applications in your site (such as Confluence and Bamboo), you can automatically create a corresponding Confluence space or a Bamboo project when your Jira project is created.
Creating a project
After you complete the setup wizard, a Jira project is created. If you've chosen to have your site create corresponding objects in other applications, those are created, too. Alternatively, you can manually create objects in other applications and link them together yourself.
After the project is created, you will see the global settings for the project and can continue to configure application-specific settings for the project as needed.
Choosing Jira Company-managed or Project Management creates the default Jira project.
The project key will be used as the prefix of this project's issue keys (e.g. TEST-100). Choose one that is descriptive and easy to type.
The project lead is a unique project role. Choose the person who manages the project as the project lead. If there is only one user in your Jira system, the Project Lead defaults to that person and this field is not available.
Creating a cross-application project
If you have multiple Cloud applications, Jira projects can be associated with objects in the other applications, such as:
a wiki space
a build project
a source repository
The association among these objects makes it possible to automatically link issues, wiki documents, plan, and build result.
Deleting a cross-application project
Deleting a project will delete the project from Jira only. Any wiki documents, source files, changesets, code reviews, build plans, and build results associated with the project will remain in their respective applications.
To delete projects, you must have project admin access for the project in Jira.
Select Projects > View all projects. You will see all your projects on the page.
Locate the project you want to delete. Click the Administer Project button.
From the Actions button, click Delete Project.
The project will be deleted, but corresponding spaces, changesets, etc. in other applications will remain. You must delete them from those application if you want to remove them.
Configuring a cross-application link
In order to create links in Jira to point to other applications, the fields where links are created must use the Wiki Style Renderer, e.g. the Comment and Description fields of your project's Jira issues.
Choose Settings > Projects.
Select the project that contains the fields you need to configure.
On the Jira project configuration page, go to the Fields section.
On each field where you will create links, click the Renders link.
From the Active Renderer drop-down, select Wiki Style Renderer.
If the field configuration applies to multiple projects and you don't want other projects to be affected by the change, copy the referenced Field Configuration Scheme and associate your project with the new field configuration before changing the settings.
Linking to server applications from Atlassian Cloud
You can set up application links between your cloud and server applications. For more information, see Link to server products from cloud.
