I am trying to understand which is the best way to work with Confluence URLs.
I did not find the settings yet, but I know that there is an option to enable/disable pretty URLs in Confluence.
e.g. pretty URL: https://confluenceinstance.com/display/INFO/2.+INFO+Open+Issues
e.g. tinylink: https://infopoint.celum.company/x/u4ERAw
On the one hand I like to see in a link already what it is about. But I understand if I change the name of the page or move the page to another space, etc. the link would be broken.
The tinylink works like a permanent link that is always available as long as the page exists (at least I believe so).
Our users are usually just copying the link from the browser’s address bar. Also if they copy links from Confluence to JIRA tickets.
- Is there any recommendation on how best work with this URLs? Did you disable the pretty-url to get rid of this issue?
- Can you add a link in JIRA to a Confluence page somehow else (without copy/paste the URL)? Ideally if there is an application link between those, JIRA converts it to a tinylink (within Confluence itself this works already out of the box).
Any advice appreciated!
