When I use Confluence and Jira on the cloud (e.g. use the SaaS as an Atlassian customer), I can paste a link of a Jira issue into a Confluence document, and the issue's Summary field text is automatically displayed, in the Confluence document, as a "live link" to the Jira issue.

But when I do the same with a link from my company's internal Jira deployment, this does not work. I only get the link text (https://... ) .

Obviously there are some login/permission issues, as I am now "asking" the external Confluence to read something from our protected Intranet.

The question: Is it possible to somehow set things so that the ability to "pull" the Summary text by Confluence from our Intranet Jira will work?

Thanks, Michael

There needs to be an Application Link between Jira and Confluence for the Jira issue macro to work. This is set up automatically in the Jira/Confluence cloud sites. You would need to allow access to the Internet Jira from the cloud, which your network admins and security team will want to review carefully
