How may I return JIRA issues in Confluence search?

Setting up a Knowledge Base System using Confluence so that multiple departments within the company have one starting point for information, and the information silos can be undone. One group lives in JIRA, and rather than asking them to duplicate anything, I want to be able to utilize the search feature within the KB on Confluence such that it not only returns results housed within Confluence, but also returns relevant JIRA issues.  How can this be accomplished? Thank you.

Hi @Ryan D -

You need to use the macro Jira Issue/Filter in Confluence page to retrieve a set of rows based on the filter criteria. Hope that helps.


I know that you can insert a Jira-search-result into a confluence page.


But data from this Jira-search-result is not indexed. Items from this search-result are not found by the search in confluence.

But maybe I am missing something.

It would be very nice, if this would work!

The search for Jira and Confluence only search their respective applications. However you can view Jira issues in Confluence using the Jira macro.

We show Jira issues in confluence. This works. But up to now they are not part of the search result. Is there no way to query both tools with one search form?
