Create a tunneled application link

A tunneled application link allows you to select an existing application tunnel that will be used to forward the traffic to the target instance, as opposed to a direct link where you use the URL of the target instance. You can create a tunneled application link only from your cloud product.

To create a tunneled application link:

  1. Open your cloud product's administration and navigate to application links. This is different from admin.atlassian.com, each product has its own administration.

    • Jira: Go to Administration > Products > Application links.

    • Confluence: Go to Administration > Application links.

  2. Select Create link.

  3. Select Tunneled application link, and then choose the application tunnel that is connected to your self-managed instance.

  4. Follow the wizard to complete the setup. You will be redirected between your cloud and self-managed products to authorize the application link.

You can verify that the application link was correctly created by viewing its details, both on the cloud and self-managed side. Here you can see some examples:

Notes

Cloud

Details of a tunneled application link on the cloud side.

Only this link is using the tunnel, because it’s incoming to your network. The target URL is the URL of your tunnel.

Self-managed

Details of a tunneled application link on the server side.

This a direct reciprocal link, not using the tunnel, because it’s outgoing from your network.
