Integrate Aha! and Confluence to link Confluence Pages in AHA! and transfer them with JIRA

Atlassian currently offers the ability to Integrate Confluence & Jira using Application Links which gives teams multiple features.

One of the features we utilize heavily is the ability to Move between Jira & Confluence.

Whenever you add a link to JIRA issues in Confluence, or link to a Confluence page from your JIRA application, the JIRA Links button appears at the top of the Confluence page. This makes it really easy to jump from Confluence to JIRA and vice versa, speeding up your workflow.

The great thing about the Confluence Links in Jira is that they are dynamic and change if the page is renamed or moved in Confluence.

I believe that it would be a great benefit to integrate Aha! and Confluence to do the same thing.  Once integrated the Confluence links can be added to Aha! feature and then passed to Jira through Feature field mapping.  This would save time as currently I create a Feature in Aha! then send it to Jira and have to remember to go and add the Confluence Link in Jira.

Here is how it would work once Aha! & Confluence are integrated:

  1. Create a Confluence page using the Product Requirements Blueprint.
  2. Create a Feature in Aha! and link it to the Confluence page (same way as done in Jira by searching for the Confluence page)
  3. Send Feature to Jira using 'Send to JIRA'
  4. Confluence page link is automatically transferred JIRA Issue

This tight integration between Aha!, JIRA & Confluence means that you can easily access the Confluence pages within Aha! and they can be transferred to JIRA and vice versa.

    Step 3 : sending feature to Jira - as a story??  The problem i'm having is the story is only 1 story of many to get a feature done -need to break the story into multiple stories.  The original story may get marked as "Done" but the other stories aren't Done, so AHA is incorreclty showing the feature as DONE, but it's not.  Can you suggest a process please for updating AHA once multiple stories are done for the feature.
