Jira administrators need to be sure that powerful page creation tools, such as publishing recipes, are always used in the appropriate context.

With Elements Publish to Confluence, you can select on which issues a recipe is available. That way, you will always know that your customized publishing recipes are used the way they were intended


This guide explains how to make a recipe available only in two projects called "AirCleaner" and "WaterCleaner". The recipe will be invisible to the users in all the other projects on the Cloud instance. 


A recipe called "Add to Knowledge Base" has been created and activated.

Configuration steps

1 - As a Jira administrator, go to the "Elements Publish to Confluence" administration and click on Recipes in the navigation bar.

2 - In the Recipes listing page, select "Add to Knowledge Base" in the Active Recipes list.

3 - In the Recipe configuration page, click on the Source tab.

4 - In the "Source issues" section, use the Project field to select the projects "AirCleaner" and "WaterCleaner".

5 - Click on the Save button.


With this setting, when users are working on either the "AirCleaner" or "WaterCleaner" project, they will be able to use the "Add to Knowledge Base" recipe directly from the action menu of an issue. The recipe is unavailable in all the other projects.

The Issue type and Status fields in this setting page can be used in the exact same way to limit the availability of a recipe even more precisely. You can also combine them to create more complex rules.
