How create documentation about jira workflow

Hello! I wont documentation all my JIRA workflows in confluence. I need a plugin or tool which can import JIRA workflow in confluence like a diagram. How now how i can do this ?  

2 answers

I don't think there's a plugin specifically for the purpose of showing JIRA workflows in Confluence.
My suggestion (free of charge) would be ...
  1. Open the workflow, activate the checkbox to show transition names
  2. Press the "Print Screen" key 
  3. Open Paint
  4. Press the Insert key
  5. Cut and save as PNG.
  6. use that in Confluence


... if you prefer to spend an hour for each workflow painting it all over again, you might consider the Confluence plugin Gliffy which is pretty powerful and lets you create all sorts of diagrams, but is not free.

I don't think Gliffy diagrams would have any significant advantage over screenshots from the JIRA workflow designer for documentation purposes: Gliffy diagrams do look good, but why spend a lot of time re-constructing workflows in Gliffy when you can just make a screenshot of them in JIRA?


I found an old plugin that converts JIRA workflows to SVG or PNG, but the latest version seems out dated and has 0 download (presumably because it's faster to convert a workflow to PNG by pressing PrintScreen rather than installing a $400 plugin.) 

I would love something as well. 

To start, I'd love to have a URL brings up the workflow in the diagram that:

a) does not require admin access, and 

b) does not require you are first looking at an issue.  


give Glass Project Documentation a shot, it gives you full project documentation online. If you want to have a "snapshot", export it to PDF, and you can upload that to your Confluence!


a) does not require admin access - only a "View Glass" project role

b) does not require you to look for any issues, just open the project :)
