Can alias column names in the JIRA plug in within Confluence?

Is there a way to show aliased column names within the JIRA Plug In used to display JIRA issues within a Confluence page?

The default column names that come across are not meaningful to management. ;-)

What is this aliased column name? And which plugin? Is it in a gadget in JIRA?

Not anything direct I can think of. Can use the SQL macro and pull out the issues from the jira database and show the results.

Not used it yet, does it give the same functionality as the JIRA Issue macro (i.e. clicking on an issue taking you to it directly within JIRA)?

If not, then that's no good. =( Need that functionality.

If there is no way to do it, then I'll have to live with it, as the aliased headings are a lower priority.

I guess you should be able to achieve it, as constructing the link with the issue id is trivial. More than that you should know SQL.

It is the JIRA Issues Plugin within Confluence. Is there a way to display different names for the fields displayed within it, rather than the actual field / column names?
