Can I display JIRA issues in Confluence without the hyperlinks?

We'd like to use Confluence to create a document that includes a list of JIRA issues. The document will be public-facing, so we don't want to include the hyperlinks that display with the JIRA Macro.

Is there a way to display JIRA issues in Confluence without the hyperlinks?

Funny you should ask. I did this the other week for a customer. Create a new multilingual text custom field. Use the wiki renderer in a field config for the project. Enter the issue keys in the gilts wrapped by the noformat macro. Then choose that field in the confluence JIRA macro. 

If scripted fields allowed wiki markup this could be automated

Multiline that is. Gilts was field before autocorrect struck

Thank you, Matt. I will give this a try.

Just insert a link and paste the URL into there.

We don't want to publish links or anything that looks like a link. Is there a way to pull the the issue from JIRA and display it in "paragraph" style without a link?

Take a screenshot of it and embed it in the document? Maybe export the issue to PDF and then attach that?

If you are open to new plugins then ConfiDoc plugin might help.

You will need a define your connection to JIRA in plugin configuration and then basically can make the same queries as JIRA issues plugin does, but have total control on how the result is shown (tables, cards, wysiwyg)

It can connect to any service that have REST API (basically all Atlassian products), you can also show some un-stuctured content from other services (just arbitrary HTMLs, images)
