Application Links (sometimes called "app links") is a bundled app that allows you to set up links, share information, and provide access to certain resources or functionality across multiple Atlassian products.

A non-exhaustive list of Atlassian products that can be linked to a Jira instance:

  • Jira

  • Bamboo
  • Crowd
  • Crucible
  • Fisheye
  • ...

Applications links are available on any hosting type: Server, Datacenter and Cloud.

Each product has its own REST API, most of them are documented by Atlassian:

Datasource configuration

This datasource type does not require any configuration. Any Atlassian application app-linked to Jira will automatically be available as an Elements Connect datasource.

We won't cover the configuration of application links in this documentation. If you need help in the configuration of an app-link, we can only recommend you have a look at Atlassian documentation
