Import data from Jira to fill out fields in Confluence


I would like to know how to auto fill fields (not just issues) in a Confluence space from a Jira project. My goal is to create custom templates in Confluence which will update my documents automatically.  

For example the project name, description, status, etc. or any data. It would also be nice to copy the Avatar.

This common template would will be used in every project which would made me documents will have the same output format (PDF, Word).

I have looked at the Insert Jira Issue/Filter but it just seems to be for issues.

I am not sure what this would be called so I haven't been able to find anything which could help me.


Thank you,

Hi @Rob DeVries ,

If I have a correct understanding of what you are trying to achieve, you are trying to populate/update a Confluence page with data from a Jira issue.

If this is the case, you may want to search the marketplace for an add-on that can help you achieve this like, for example, the following ones (you can find more in the marketplace):


Being on Confluence Server, another option would be to write a User Macro. For details and instructions see:


Finally, similar topics have been discussed in the below threads. You may want to review them to see if any other solution is available:


I hope this helps.

I believe this can be helpful:

Smart issue view for Confluence

This plugin allows you to freely define Jira issue fields to be presented on a Confluence page. You can even present a single field (such as the numer of votes). Or display a small box with all the data you need:

On top of that it is possible to edit the issue right on a Confluence page (embed issues are automatically refreshed).

Please note, that this is a cloud only plugin.
