Configure collaboration tools

Integrating collaboration tools with Jira can help you plan and run your project more efficiently. By connecting to collaboration tools like Confluence, and Team Calendars for Confluence, you can:

  • Link project documentation to your team's work across Jira, Confluence, and Team Calendars for Confluence

  • Centralize your team leaves in Team Calendar for Confluence

Connect to Confluence (wiki), or Team Calendars for Confluence to get issue notifications in your chat rooms, link project documentation to stories and epics, centralize your team leave, and more.

Connecting Jira to your collaboration tools

Follow the instructions on Integrating with collaboration tools (Jira admin documentation) to connect Jira to Confluence.

Note that you need to be a Jira administrator to connect Jira to Confluence. You will need to be an administrator for Confluence as well. 

Feature overview

If you have Jira Software, Confluence, and Team Calendars for Confluence, you can use them together to build stronger user stories and better plans for sprints or releases, while streamlining your team's work. Create meeting notes on the fly, wrap up a sprint with a retrospective report, and more.

Here are some of the features that you'll unlock by integrating Jira and Confluence. For a full feature overview, see Using Jira applications with Confluence.

Plan epics

If you have linked your Jira instance to a Confluence instance, you can create and link Confluence pages to your epics. For example, you may want to link your epic to a specification or design document in Confluence.

Plan sprints

Team Calendars for Confluence acts as your single source of truth for managing team leaves, tracking projects, and planning events. If you have Team Calendars installed in Confluence, planning your sprints around leaves and events is even easier. Add a sprint event to your team's calendar in Confluence, and as you plan your sprints, you will be able to see whether team leaves or events will impact your work.

Manage sprints

If you have linked your Jira instance to a Confluence instance, you can create and link Confluence pages to your sprints via Jira. For example, you may want to write up the sprint meeting notes in Confluence and link them to the sprint. You may also want to write your team's retrospective notes in Confluence and link them to the Sprint Report for the completed sprint.

Manage releases

With releases ongoing, you can update your stakeholders on the release progress by creating Jira status reports in Confluence. The Jira status report provides a snapshot of a release at a point in time. Stakeholders can monitor progress, even if they don't have access to Jira
