How do I display a JIRA description field in a Confluence page

I want to summarise my user stories in a confluence page so that stakeholders can view and comment, but keep them away from the actual JIRA dev tickets

If I add the standard JIRA ticket link macro it shows the ticket number, status and summary

How can I show the description field  ?

1 answer

The JIRA issues macro can show a list of issues based on a JQL query (instead of just a single issue key). You can modify the columns displayed in the dialog.

So you say add a query that only returns one item and just display the description column ?

Yes. Display as table and then you can add/remove columns as you like.

Using the display options.
