How to I add a Insert Jira Issue Macro that can be narrowed down using JQL for multiple factors?


I don't want to insert a macro that includes ALL issues from our jira project into this page in confluence. I want to insert the jira issues that have a specific status into confluence with this macro. 

JQL used in "Insert Jira Issue" Macro:

Project= Group1 AND (status = planning OR status = unassigned)

The macro deletes everything but "Project = Group1" and displays every single issue at once. Shortening the list to 10 results still shows many statuses that should not be shown on this page. We only want Planning OR Unassigned status issues shown. 

All tutorials and FAQ's show how to insert the macro or claim that you can use JQL in the macro, but none give detail on using JQL with this macro. I know JQL and this macro seems simple but JQL doesn't seem to work with this macro.

Hi @Bryan Jarboe 

This is a bit strange. 

Do you always click search before you click insert? 


Does this JQL works in jira for you? 

Regards, Dominic
