There are various ways to do linking using the OSLC Connect for Jira application. This is notably detailed in the related product documentation. Below is a hands-on of how you can use these features.

Creating Links to remote resources in Jira
To create or add a new link to a remote resource (ie. from IBM ELM or Siemens Polarion ALM), follow these steps:
In Jira, open an existing Jira Issue.
Under the issue title, select
In the Link menu, select
Linking to an existing resource
When using OSLC Connect for Jira with Jira, there are two different ways you can create links to existing resources:
Creating links using the Selection Dialog,
Creating links using Drag and Drop or by copy-pasting the remote resource’s URL.
Creating links using the Selection Dialog
From the Collaboration Link window, you can either click the “Select … from” button (your last selection) or click the “…” button to choose a link type and a remote Artifact Container.
A new window will appear using the Selection Dialog of the remote tool (ie. IBM ELM or Siemens Polarion).
Select one or more artifacts from the remote repository using its Selection Dialog.
Creating links using Drag and Drop or by copy-pasting the remote resource’s URL
Using drag and drop is similar to using copying and pasting the remote resource’s URL. It is also highly dependent on the remote OSLC tool that you are working with.
To avoid any duplication, you should review the related product documentation below.

Creating a new item and linking to it
From the Collaboration Link window, you can either click the “Create … from” button (your last selection) or click the “…” button to choose a link type and a remote Artifact Container.
You can then fill out the form from the remote application to create an artifact there.
When you submit the Creation Dialog, the artifact is automatically created in the remote container (IBM ELM, Polarion ALM) and linked to the active artifact in our local repository (Confluence).
