How to show one Jira issue on a confluence page?

I like to track tasks in Jira and like to manage information in Confluence. So, when working on an issue, I create a task in Jira and create a page for it in Confluence and want to merge the two. So, I would like to show the Jira task on a confluence page. I see that there is a way to show a list of Jira tasks in Confluence, but I don't want that. Rather I would like to show only one Jira task on a page...the whole task, just as you see it in Jira...kind of like doing an iframe or include.

Hi Mark,

If you are running Confluence 3.5, you can use the "Insert JIRA Issue Dialog" to insert a reference to a single JIRA issue on a Confluence page (documentation here:

This does only display a brief summary of the issue, though (issue key, issue status and summary). Unfortunately there is no way to embed the details of an entire JIRA issue into a Confluence page out-of-the-box.

Some options you may consider:

  • Enable the {html} macro on your Confluence instance (note: there are security implications) and manually embed an iframe into your page for the JIRA issue).
  • Develop a custom Gadget definition or Confluence macro to render the information you require
