How to show priority names in Jira issues list macro?


what key must i enter in the Jira Issues List macro in confluence to show up the priority name instead of the icon?

I tried but this was a silly guess, i guess.

Hello Martin,

You might be able to accomplish that by customizing the JIRA Issues Macro look for the .vm files, and uploading the resulting .jar to Confluence plugins folder - you can use this KB as aid.

Editing Confluence JAR Files

The vm file that needs to be updated is templates\extra\jira\staticJiraIssues.vm in "confluence-jira-plugin-5.6.12.jar".  

The lines I deleted:

#elseif( $col.equals('priority') && $item.getChild('priority').getValue())
<img src="$!xmlXformer.findIconUrl($item.getChild($col.key))" alt="$generalUtil.htmlEncode($!item.getChild($col.key).getValue())" class="icon" />
  1. Shutdown Confluence
  2. Create WEB-INF\classes\templates\extra\jira 
  3. Copy updated staticJiraIssues.vm file to WEB-INF\classes\templates\extra\jira 
  4. Start Confluence

Hi all,

sth new here? I am trying to display an two dimensional Jira Filter within Confluence, but Priorities are not shown coreectly, instead it is all irrelevant ..... although Priority is filled correctly within Jira. image.png
