How to show and print images from a JIRA filter in a Confluence page on PDF export?

We try to print a list of JIRA issues displayed on a Confluence page via a PDF.

This works fine, images attached to the JIRA issues are displayed on the Confluence page.

However when exported to PDF the JIRA issues do not contain the images anymore.

Is there a way to export/print the images from JIRA?

Hey Willem-Jan,
hey Roya,

It's been quite some time to come up with an answer, but I just want to point you to the release notes of Confluence 5.6, especially the part on the improvements of the PDF export:

I'm not sure if it is doable in your use case, but if you export the issues on the JIRA side with the PDF View Plugin, then you will be able to:

  1. display the attached images themselves
  2. display the attachment metadata only (filename, filesize, etc.)
  3. display any image that is in the text fields, like "description" or "environment". It can be an attachment or even an external image specified by an absolute URL.
  4. embed the attached images (and other attached files) in the PDF document!

(You can select any combination of these options.)


I am experiencing the same problem.
I am using the cloud version.

I created a report where I display some issues from Jira.
There are some images in the body of some issues.

They are displayed correctly in Confluence.
But the images are not displayed when I export to PDF or  Word.

Since that is an old issue, I imagine that you should have a fix for that.
