FAQs

Q: Is this integration method supported by Atlassian?

A: No. It is important to understand that this works by making changes to the Jira and Confluence interface in your browser.

Atlas Authority will work to fix the browser extensions as soon as possible to prevent breaking changes to occur. Please help us by filing bugs in our bug tracker.
