Creating a table in Confluence pulling in JIRA information

I am looking for a way to pull in JIRA story information to a table into Confluence.


I have a table with 7 colums -

JIRA Defect - I can pull in the JIRA Story and it will show real time if it is open, closed, bug, story, etc

Issue -

Description -

Blocker -

Status -

Date Created -

Date Closed -


Is there a way to pull the column information from JIRA so it will update realtime?

Hello Natalie,

What you are describing is very similar to the functionality of JIRA Issues Macro. This will update in real-time, and you can use a specific filter to display results. Additionally, you can specify which columns to display, and in which order.

Perhaps this will work for your needs? If not, please tell us how your requirement differs from what is offered by the macro and we can try to come up with an alternative solution for you.

Kind Regards,

Hi Shannon,


Thank you for the respone, this did help!! I am now running into a different issue.


When I am on the macros - insert JIRA/Issue Filter. I want to search for JIRA issues. If all of my stories are under SDU-###, I would think I could just search SDU and they would all come up, that is not the case. I have to type in every JIRA issue number that I want to add to the macros. That is very tedious. Is there another way to search for issues using this?

Hi Natalie,

Thank you for letting us know that it fits your needs!

For your new problem, I would suggest raising a new question, that way our community will all see it. I'm not quite sure what causes that so once you raise the new question the community will be able to assist you.

Let me know if you have any trouble doing that.

Kind Regards,

Hi Natalie,

I think you need to type JQL "project = SDU" instead of typing each issue separately.


Thank you for the respones! Soo it partially works, I type in:

 project = SDU

The first 20 items show up there is no way for me to see any other items. If I click "View All" it takes me to JIRA and I get an error.

Do you know if there is a way to search by Version or Epic (that is what I really need). Maybe I am doing the JQL wrong? ahhh I don't know!

To show more than 20 issue you need to increase Maximum issues limit. 

You can read more about this macro here.

For version JQL will look like fixVersion = "2.0".


But the easisest way to get correct JQL is to go to Issue Navigator in JIRA, set filters you want by selecting projects and versions, then switch to Advanced search mode (link in the right side) and copy JQL to your JIRA Issues macro.

Thank you!! That was very helpful exactly what I needed :)
