I am unable to create a Jira Issue from Confluence User Macro!

I am attempting to create a Jira Issue from the confluence user macro. In this macro I am using jQuery to post to my Jira Instance. I am using the application links to do this and when I do I get a 411 error (length required).

var baseUrl = ""
var createIssue = "";
var datos = {
"fields": {
"key": "TEST"
"summary": "Test Ticket",
"reporter": "",
"issuetype": {
"name": "Task"

var parameters = JSON.stringify(datos);

url: baseUrl + createIssue,
type: 'POST',
dataType: 'json',
contentType: 'application/json',
data: parameters ,
processData: false,
async: false,
success: function (data) {
error: function(error){

I have tried many things to try to get this to work. I have use just basic authentication instead of the application link and that also does not work, however it raises a different error to 411. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @Spencer Robertson 

I'm not a coder & I'm technically novice to coding. Yet I feel i can give you some points which might help you in attaining your requirements.  Yet i'm not sure how good this will hold: 

The required fields  Date of First Response and Time in Status are not available. If you can come up with some script to include these , I guess you might be able to take it up . 


Figured it out in the end. Had to reverse engineer the confluence macro to add a Jira Issue, the application link URL in my old code does not work. The following code should work:

url: ',
type: 'POST',
dataType: 'json',
contentType: 'application/json',
data: parameters,
processData: false,
async: false,
success: function(data) {
error: function(error) {
