Hello @Manisha Adulla - I think I may have a solution for you!

Because Jira and Confluence are seamlessly integrated, have you considered leveraging the macros in Confluence to pull in Jira information rather than pulling Confluence information into Jira?

It's possible to use the same types of gadgets from the Jira Dashboard in Confluence:

  • Created Vs Resolved
  • Pie Charts
  • Filters
  • Issue Statistics
  • Two-Dimensional Diagrams

Plus with all the Confluence-specific macros (page properties report, recently updated, etc.), you can build out a very sophisticated landing page (perhaps on your Space's Overview page) that is a one-stop shop for all project work!

Thanks Andrew,

Do you have examples that you can point to? on how to leverage the macros in Confluence to pull in Jira information rather than pulling Confluence information into Jira.

Hello @Manisha Adulla - happy to share a screenshot which illustrates the potential Confluence has in pulling in Jira project information. 

Below is an Overview page for a project and everything in a green box is Jira information. 

  • There are several JQLs Filter Gadgets that pull in specific Jira issues and pertinent column information
  • There is a link to a single card for reference so members of the team can see it's status without going into Jira
  • There is a Created vs Resolved Chart Gadget

To access the add macros to your Confluence page, go to the "+" at in the toolbar and in the search bar type in the gadget you want to add and it will pop up for you to select.

Awesome, thank you so much!

 We want to be able to see the confluence page on the JIRA dashboard . Can this be done using the Include Page macro?

Andrew Kendris Community Leader Apr 08, 2021

The Include Page macro is used to display contents of one page in another page. This is great for content reuse so you don't need to update multiple places with the same information manually (the Milestones and deadlines table at the top right in the image above is actually that macro and the header is actually a hyperlink 🙂).  

Unfortunately this macro is not available as a gadget for Jira Dashboards and can only be used in Confluence.

Using the Include Page Macro

Thanks much Andrew!
