How do I show the summary text from a JIRA story on a confluence page?

When I use the 'insert JIRA filter', I only get the JIRA link icon and issue reference.  I want to show the JIRA story summary text in confluence and have this text link to the JIRA story. If the story summary is updated in JIRA, then the changes should be reflected in the text within confluence.

I have looked at using JQL, but cannot find a way to control the displayed fields in confluence.  When I select a 'table' in the 'display options' in Confluence and delete all the fields except 'summary', the resulting table is not filtered by the JIRA reference and all fields are shown.

Help appreciated.

What I didn't do was exit the edit view and look at the page.  If you do this, then the JIRA link renders correctly.

Hopefully, this will help others too.
