How to update confluence page with nicely looking JIRA links by "confluence.update_page" in python


Hello there, I'm using python and update_page() function to post some html. Using something like:


will be plain text, however is it possible to reach an output like the one on attachment?
This view is being done automatically when i copy-paste JIRA link manually, however I've no idea how to reach it with html.

Hi @Szymon Kołodziej 

I would suggest you not using HTML, instead use the storage format of confluence. 

Then you will notice, that a jira issue is like so: 

<ac:structured-macro ac:name="jira"
<ac:parameter ac:name="server">Jira</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="columnIds">issuekey,summary,issuetype,created,updated,duedate,assignee,reporter,priority,status,resolution</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="columns">key,summary,type,created,updated,due,assignee,reporter,priority,status,resolution</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="serverId">ff94f833-c264-3d1f-a236-7bdb5d13106c</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="key">JIRA KEY</ac:parameter>

Regards, Dominic

I found option with html :p since your solution returned me some error.
