How to stop "hilight and open jira issue" from adding jira macro to the page?

We are testing an update to Confluence 5.4 and very much look forward to the better JIRA integration. Hilighting text on a confluence page and using it to open a JIRA issue is quite handy. Having this process automatically add a jira-issue macro to the confluence page as part of this process is not.

Documentation Reference:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Working+with+JIRA+in+Confluence?&#comments

  • Choose Create - the issue will be created in JIRA, and added to your page.

How do you prevent this process from adding a jira issue macro to the confluence page? Revoking page edit permission to users is not an acceptable solution.

After discussing the issue with support, the intended behavior of this feature is to interface with the Jira Issue macro and to add the issue macro to the page. Opening a ticket is a function of the macro.

After discussion and to prevent our users from adding issue links accidentally to our documentation pages we disabled the pop-up portion of this feature. When I disabled the "Confluence and Jira Content Connector" Plugin, the popup stopped showing up.

It's a nice feature, but is not needed in our implementation at this time.
