Display count of Jira issues without suffix "issues" in confluence page

I have a confluence page in which I want to fill count of issues based on my pre-defined Jira queries using Jira Issues Macro (via JQL). The returned value is always having a suffix “issues”. How to get only he number without the suffix?

My query is related to the Jira Macro page

Hi @Arvind Sinha ,

If you insert the issue count option in a table cell, You can remove the word 'issues' with the help of the Table Transformer macro (the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app).

Please find the detailed instructions in the answers to this question.

Hello @Natalie Paramonova [Stiltsoft] ,

Thank you so much for this help. It works.

However, with this the clickable links with the numbers are also removed, so we can't go to the list of filtered jira issue by clicking the numbers. Is there any way to achieve that as well?

Hello @Arvind Sinha ,

You can apply the following query to preserve Jira filter links:


SELECT T1.'Date',
FORMATWIKI( "["+(T1.'Count'->split(" issues")->0::number) +"|" +
T1.'Count'->tfView->match("href=([^ >]*)")->1->slice(1, -1)
+ "]"
) AS 'Count'

Hi @Arvind Sinha , 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community. If you are referring to "issues" which is displaying the issue count on a Confluence page, "100 issues", then it is the default one and it cannot be removed.
