We plan on having a Confluence space that provides documentation to a large audience at our company. These users will be simply consumers of the space with view only rights, not edit. We'd like to have a button or link that has a nice integrated option to Create JIRA Issue much like the JIRA Issue macro when editing the page. I'm not seeing this as an option. I know I can do a direct HTML link and get them there, but if we had the macro-like integration that'd be nice, too.
This is in an effort to make finding support docs and opening issues related to the docs as easy as possible for our users which will not be having edit rights to our docs.
Any advice would be appreciated!
Ah yes, I guess I *could* use that! Currently, there's some concern that it doesn't follow accessibility guidelines so we're not allowed to use them on our intranet pages. But perhaps our Confluence pages will get an exception....who knows.
I'll see if anyone else has ideas for me and if not you get the answer credit. :)
In JOD, there are several of the Adaptavist plugins enabled - so, if you don't have some of their free ones installed, you might not have these options. We used the Clickable macro and inside of it, inserted the Round Rectangle macro. For the Clickable macro, you insert a link so that when the user clicks on it, it navigates them accordingly. Consequently, the link we use was the link for the appropriate JIRA issue type. You have to have the PID, or project internal ID as well as the issue type internal ID.
<insert Jira instance URL>/secure/CreateIssue.jspa?pid=<insert project ID>&issuetype=<insert issue type ID>
We did several of these and inserted them into different columns - example below is what four of them look like on one of our pages.
I believe we don't have an option like that developed yet, but seems like a good idea! So what I suggest you to create a feature request on jira.atlassian.com so de developers can be aware of that!
Also, if you want to develop a macro, you may access developer.atlassian.com to get some information about how to use the Jira API.
Hope it helps!
