Data Relating to Custom Fields not showing up in Jira Issue Macro in Confluence

I have some custom fields defined for our Service Desk in Jira:

'3rd Party Reference' of type Text Field (single line)

'Region' of type Labels


In Confluence I have a Jira issues Macro showing those 2 fields as columns.

The values for these 2 columns are empty even though if I go to the service desk, they should have values for Region and 3rd Party Reference for the issues being displayed.

Same issue here. Added a custom issue field (Paragraph) that does not render when added as a column within the Jira Issue Macro. Displaying as a table FWIW.

@Garrett Folks I have the same problem. The Display options shows the new custom field, which displays as a column in the table in Confluence, but the data values of that column are not showing.

Did you manage to get this working? - thanks Brett

I'm having the same issue. @Jackie Forgette did you figure it out?

@elizabeth_jones the problem is not showing the issues, it's not filing in the columns chosen. Any idea why? Mine is a custom text field.

Here is the documentation on how that display works and how to edit it.

It sounds as if you'll want to write a jql query to display those custom fields of your choosing. See this section: 

Displaying issues via a Jira Query Language (JQL) search
