Disable Display inline on pasting URL of JIRA


When pasting a JIRA ticket URL on the Confluence page, it will be automatically expanding the ticket name and status, instead of showing the URL itself.

It takes a too long time when open a Confluence page that has many such URLs.

I wonder is there a way to suppress that auto-expanding but just paste the URL by default.

Any ideas?

Hi @Ryota Hashimoto ,

By default when you paste a link to a Jira issue, it will convert to a smart link. Clicking on the link while still in Edit mode will allow you to modify the link:


"Display inline" is the default option that shows the summary and status. Changing the dropdown to "Display URL" will stop the issue status from being fetched when the page loads and show the bare URL.


Daniel, can I set to "Display URL" as my default global setting (say, for JIRA too)?  Thanks.

Hi @Rich Handler ,

Currently that's not an option, but we do have a popular Suggestion open for that. You can follow along on the progress of that suggestion here:

Why on earth is this not an option? The amount of extra clicks required for every URL just to display what I actually pasted is absurd.

I have a list of 100+ links that switches to inline and makes it hard to work with. Very inconvenient...
