Can I create Jira issues (mostly tasks) directly from Confluence?


I've been using Confluence's inbuilt task list system. It's not bad, but quite limited in terms of management, as tasks are either open or closed. Is there a way to create Jira tasks on the fly (no clicks, just parsing, like with Confluence's tasks) from a Confluence page?

Ideally, I'd like to pass the following: Jira project (could be a default), type of issue (maybe), assignee, due date, title, short description. The goal is really to just type my meeting minutes and be done with it, while still having proper task tracking.

I've googled as much as I could but didn't have any luck finding anything...

Hello @Romain_B

Is this still an issue for yourself or were you able to find a solution?

You mentioned you searched for a solution and you were unable to find anything suitable, is that correct?

Your primary requirement was for Confluence to parse the content and create (or suggest potential) Jira issues on-the-fly?

Apologies for all the questions, it helps to fully understand the context.



Hi @Danny ,

Yep, it's still an issue for me. The use of the Jira macro is too slow for me as it requires many clicks.

My primary requirement is indeed to create issues (tasks) on-the-fly, just as can be done Confluence's tasks. It's lightning fast, and just so efficient... Yet, the follow-up on these tasks is just too limited for me on Confluence, as the Confluence tasks basically just allow you to click when it's done.

Thanks for asking for these clarifications.

Thanks @Romain_B

Unfortunately I could not find an exact solution to your requirements, instead I think reaching out to Adaptavist regarding their Confluence Scriptrunner add-on may get you one step closer. 

The closest example I could find was utilising Adaptavist and Comala Workflows to create jira issues on page approvals. Does not work for on-the-fly Jira Issue creation. 

While the end result is not exactly what you require I would suggest reaching out to Adaptavist to see if it is possible to create Jira issues based on a particular Confluence page event trigger. 

Apologies I could not be any further assistance,


Hi Danny, 

Thanks for the answers.

I'll try reaching out to them.
