Confluence Space Export/Import Affects JIRA Issue Macro Links

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      NOTE: This bug report is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding bug report.

      Atlassian Status as of 12 October 2016

      What had caused this issue?

      The JIRA Issues Macro is used to create links to JIRA issues in Confluence pages. These links contain the identification of which JIRA instance the JIRA Issue Macro then will be referring to.
      This issue occurred as Confluence A and Confluence B do not have the same Application Links configured.
      JIRA Issue Macros' in Confluence B (imported from Confluence A via Space backup) aren't able to render the issues correctly as it is still referring to JIRA instance configured in Confluence A, in which is not configured in Confluence B.

      Resolution for Cloud instances

      The Confluence Cloud importer has been updated to provide a JIRA macro repair feature, in which any broken JIRA macros will be fixed as part of the import.
      For more details on this, please refer to our Import the space content into Confluence Cloud document.

      Workaround for Server instances

      If you're using Confluence Server and you've recently changed domain name, migrated from Confluence Cloud, or merged multiple instances, you may need to relink JIRA issues macros.
      For a workaround of this issue, please refer to the steps outlined in our How to bulk update JIRA Issue Macro to point to a different JIRA instance
