Confluence Jira macro unpastable

Hi guys

I'm trying to use a Jira macro in a confluence page - when I add and manually configure it, it works fine - but if I use the examples from it fails to render correctly

Issues Macro in page

I've changed it to point to my linked Jira instance, and set anonymous to false -


This is the real link I'm testing with, and it displays exactly the same

If I manually start typing it, I can put in the link provided and it works well - but I want to be able to template this, and generate it automatically.

Any thoughts?

Hi Scott,

Have you maybe tried it with a different machine or with a different browser? Want to see if this is an environmental issue or probably a browser cache issue.

By the way, do you have proxy configuration set up? It could also be that your proxy configuration is pointing to the incorrect address.

Hi Joachim,

I'm using Chrome with no proxy, and as I said - the autocomplete works fine - it's just copy/pasting fails to generate correctly.

The underlying issue was clock values, so the jira instance was a few mins ahead of the confluence instance

Once resolved, the macros pasted correctly - this could be the same issue that was causing my other headaches
