I remember seeing a demo at Atlassian Summit 2013 on JIRA and Confluence integration which allows more than one issue to be created at once from a table in a Confluence page. Each row in the table turns into a separate JIRA issue and an issue link is inserted to each table row that links to the corresponding newly created JIRA issue.
Now I can not find how to do this in Confluence. Is this a feature of a new version of Confluence that is not released yet? Is it done with a plug-in? Or am I going delusional?
Hey guys, that functionality will be out with the next 'major' release, ie: 5.4, which should be by the end of the year.
5.3.1, like all the minor point releases is just a bigfix release essentially.
Glad to hear you're looking forward to it, we can't wait to get it into your hands!
I am having a similar issue, I can create the issues from the confluence page however it does not update the column "JIRA ISSUE" in the confluence table with a link to the newly created JIRA issue.
Also, I had an expectation that it would automatically assign these issues to the EPIC NAME captured in the product requirements document however this does not happen either.
Is this the expected behavior?
Currently, after generating these issues I manually insert the JIRA links and update the issues created so that they are linked to the required epic
I have the same question. During the keynote, Scott mentionned that this feature would be avalaible in the next version of Confluence but I was a little disapointed to see that the feature was not shipped with the newly 5.3.1 release. My bosses and I are enthousiast about this feature. When this feature be available to customers?
This feature is available now. If you highlight the contents of a cell and hover over it with your mouse an icon will appear that allows you to create a Jira issue. If you click the icon to create a Jira issue it will open a window that gives you the option of 'create x issues from this table'.
Is it a feature or bug that once you have created a table in Confluence and you want to create individual JIRA issues from the rows in the table it creates one for all rows in the table? I was thinking that perhaps you want to add rows from time to time and that the created issues was those selected by the user.... not the whole lot again...
This is now implemented (no idea when) but you can see it in action in this YouTube video -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uEhPNPWki8
Basically you just select a single cell then click the JIRA icon that shows next to the comment icon.
Lets you choose the Project, Issue Type (no sub-tasks unfortunately), Summary, and Description.
