Autopopulate both Summary and Description from Confluence

We're trying out Confluence. I gather the easiest way to create a JIRA issue related to Requirements in a Requirements Template-created page is highlight and click the JIRA icon. Which then populates the selected text into the Summary. This is, I have read, an improvement over previous Confluence functionality that required copy and paste.


But this function means I still have to copy and paste, if what I selected is all put into the Summary field, and nothing is put in the Description.


How do I get Confluence to populate both the Summary and the Description from the row or cells that I have selected?

Can't you just select both fields from the import dialog?

My Import Dialog doesn't look like that. It looks like this:


I'm having the same issue and the dialog I get looks like the one above.

There's no option to map the summary or description fields.  Only the project and issue type.

Note, I'm using a local install of Confluence (5.7) and JIRA (v6.3.15).

This widget could not be displayed.

Finally, been trying to respond for weeks but the page just refused to load the editor to post.

So is there a method to port both fields over automatically?
