Displaying the 'type' of linked issue in a Confluence page

Hi all,

I'm creating status reports for various workstreams in a project I'm working on.

In each report, I would like to display certain issue types from Jira (for example actions or tasks) for each workstream.

Using the 'insert Jira issue/filter' macro I'm able to filter by issue type and display the linked issues. However what I would like to do is also display the status of the linked issues (e.g. whether a linked issue is blocked, closed, etc.).

Currently the macro simply shows the linked issues in a list without any detail on them.

Any help would be hugely appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Hi @David Hazeel,

To tell you the truth I don't quite understand what you're trying to achieve. You have some kind of a filter, right?

Let me show you my example and how it works in my environment:

Display options1.jpgDisplay option2.jpgSo, as a result, I have this table:

Display option3.jpg

Is it close to what you're trying to accomplish?

Hi @Grigory Salnikov _SYSSOFT_ - thank you for getting back to me on this. I'll try and explain in a different way.

I've gotten to exactly the step in your image and it works, displaying a list of linked issues on my Confluence page. This is fine, but I'd like to take it a step further.

When viewing the list of linked issues, I'd like them to display more of the detail from Jira (like blocked, closed, open, etc.). This is the bit I haven't been able to find an answer to. Currently my list of linked issues just displays the Jira ticket number.

Does that make more sense?

Yes, I guess :)

May I also take a look at your list now (without any specific data)?

I think it'll help.

Oh, am I right assuming the following:

Display option4.jpg

-  this is the result you want to achieve.

Yes exactly that. Currently the macro generates that list in the green box and I'd like the status of the linked items to be displayed too.

Thanks again for your help.

Yes, I definitely see now. 

The very first thing that comes to mind is to create 4 additional filters:


... something like:

1. issue in linkedIssues("MAPPMO-1661")
2. issue in linkedIssues("MAPPMO-1660")
3. issue in linkedIssues("MAPPMO-1658")
4. issue in linkedIssues("MAPPMO-1636")

 Yes, this is not the best but still, a way.

I'll try to find something better.

Thank you - I've managed to get that to work so that it displays as a separate filter below the current macro. I'll accept this as an answer as it does solve my problem in a simple way.

If you can find something else, that would be even better. Thanks again for getting back to me.

Thank you :)

You're welcome! Should I find anything better, I'll get back to you.

Have a nice day!
