Choosing fields when displaying single JIRA issue in Confluence

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: JIRA Issues Macro

In a Confluence page I paste the URL of a JIRA issue. By default, the following information are shown for this issue:

  • Issue Type
  • Key
  • Summary
  • Status


However I'd like to not show the status, only the key and the summary for this single issue. However I cannot find any option like this. I cann set the display options but they seem to be applicable for a list of tables only.

Did you try to use "Display options" and then "Table" and then "Colums to display"? It seems to work, if you check the preview.

Yes, I did try that. However this seems to affect the preview only. When previewing or saving the page, the single issue still displays the default fields.

I used Select macro / JIRA / put in the JIRA issue, as Display options I choose Table and as Columns to display Key and Resolution. It works for me.

This is a lot of stuff I had to do manually, but I guess, this can be handled easier.

It works this way but then you have the table view instead of the single issue view.

I am facing the same issue as Rober Strauch highlighted. Is there any workaround where we could add single issue with fields that we want to display without having the table? also is there a possibility to have have a table view with column where we can add comments about that particular issue (not talking about the JIRA comments here)?
