Automated generation of month-wise report from Confluence, fetching Jira issues

There is a requirement to export a monthly report from a Confluence page, which fetches Jira issues via JQL for each month. The current process requires copying of the Confluence Page, change in report title, and dates in JQL.

Is there a way to automate generation of the report? For example: have a "Generate Monthly report" button, choose the month and on "Apply" this would automatically generate the page with the data extracted from Jira

Hi @Vinay Sharma quick question do you have any scripting tools available to you?  This can be accomplished via one of those re: scriptrunner.

Thanks! @Craig Nodwell

Yes, ScriptRunner is there. Any suggested steps?

Give me a little time I have to head to the office, I'll send you some script examples once I'm there.

The imports are based on my needs so you can probably trim them down considerably, remove and test etc.
You need to set your own parameters for an issue(to work in script console) your projects, your confluence URL, your confluence space key, your confluence page, page ancestor ID, fixVersion...  I tried to put comments where I could.

Change the necessary variables.
Put code in the scriptrunner console and execute.
Once you get it to where you are satisfied then set it up to run as a job in scriptrunner on your desired intervals based off a CRON expression (examples exist in the job config).
