How to register for TaskCreatedEvents in Confluence?


I want to write a simple plugin which notices when a Confluence task was created. Any suggestions how to achieve this?

This widget could not be displayed.

One solution would be to write an event listener in your plugin as follow :


import com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.tasklist.event.ConfluenceTaskV2CreateEvent;
import com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.tasklist.event.ConfluenceTaskV2RemoveEvent;
import com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.tasklist.event.ConfluenceTaskV2UpdateEvent;
import com.atlassian.event.api.EventListener;
import com.atlassian.event.api.EventPublisher;
import com.atlassian.plugin.spring.scanner.annotation.imports.ComponentImport;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.DisposableBean;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.InitializingBean;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Component;

public class TasksListener implements InitializingBean, DisposableBean {

private final EventPublisher eventPublisher;

public TasksListener(final @ComponentImport EventPublisher eventPublisher) {
this.eventPublisher = eventPublisher;

public final void afterPropertiesSet() throws Exception {

public final void destroy() throws Exception {

public void taskCreated(final ConfluenceTaskV2CreateEvent taskCreatedEvent) {


public void taskUpdated(final ConfluenceTaskV2UpdateEvent taskUpdatedEvent) {


public void taskRemoved(final ConfluenceTaskV2RemoveEvent taskRemovedEvent) {



Thank you very much. That's exactly what I was looking for.
