Edit the column width for the Jira issues macro

I'm using the Jira issues macro in Confluence to pull requirements from Jira into a single table. I'm interested in finding a way to adjust the column width, sometimes the column with a lot of text is compressed and when exported to PDF isn't reader friendly. I'd like to be able to define the column width so every export is consistent. 

Is this possible?

Hi @Jamie Abbott ,

It is possible with the help of the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app and its Table Transformer macro that allows advanced table cells formatting.

Wrap your Jira Issues macro into the Table Transformer macro body and use custom SQL queries, for example:

FORMATWIKI("{cell:width=100px}" + 'Summary'+ "{cell}") AS 'Summary'

Wed 2-1.pngWed 2-2.png


FORMATWIKI("{cell:width=300px}" + 'Summary'+ "{cell}") AS 'Summary'

Wed 2-3.pngWed 2-4.pngHope this helps.

Thanks, is there a way of doing this without a pluggin?

Seems there is no any workaround with the standard Confluence tools.

Okay thanks - do you know what dictates the column widths? I have two tables with similar information, and the column widths differ in each. 

Difficult to say honestly, especially what concerns Cloud formatting.

I've also found several issues for Server/DC and Cloud where customers ask Atlassian to make the Jira Issues column width resizeable:

There are several examples of custom HTML user macros that are claimed to be helpful - maybe you'll get some hints from the threads.
