2. Installation and Configuration

A system with Structure and Structure.Pages contains a number of moving parts, some of them from ALM Works, some of them from Atlassian. Therefore, it is very important to correctly install and configure all these parts before trying to build structures with pages.

In brief, the procedure is:

  1. Make sure you have compatible versions of JIRA and Confluence.
  2. Install Structure and Structure.Pages on JIRA.
  3. Install Structure.Pages Helper on Confluence.
  4. Configure Confluence to accept Remote API calls.
  5. Configure Application Link between JIRA and Confluence, or make sure it is configured correctly.
  6. Enable Confluence integration in Structure system settings.
  7. Monitor JIRA and Confluence logs for messages from Structure.

For a detailed description of the procedure, please see the User's Guide.
