    • Can't assign points after a sprint has started
    • Want to link JIRA issue to chat (hip chat to JIRA or JIRA to hip chat)

  1. Regarding markup mode in Confluence, you can enter markup text directly if you select 'Wiki Markup' from the Insert menu.  However, Confluence translates this to an internal format and the markup information is lost when you save the entry.  If you want to write something in markup text and be able to edit it again, then you need to use the 'Wiki markup without migration' macro, which is the very last one on the Other Macros list from the Insert menu.  A quick way to get it is to type '{wi'.  Confluence will then offer you a short list of macros matching that text.  The macro inserts an (invisible) frame into the page, and anything in the frame is interpreted as old Confluence markup text, and it stays that way.
