Inserting Markdown table with support for Jira Ticket Macro


If I write a confluence page with and copy&paste e.g. "" it will trigger the Jira Ticket Macro and link the ticket, title and current status.


If insert markup this does not happen.

This results in a standard link.

|Apex Class Name|Description|Linked JIRA Tasks|


This results in a borked markup table but with the ticket linked.


|Apex Class Name|Description|Linked JIRA Tasks|

Any ideas on having a markdown table with Jira Ticket Macros?

Hello Frederik,

Thank you for raising this question on Atlassian Community! I understand you need to insert a markup table with a linked Jira ticket, but it's not working correctly.

We have an open bug that may be causing this issue:

As a workaround, you can insert Markdown in the Legacy editor template. Use the page below to convert your markup to Confluence formatting:

Convert Markdown to Confluence 

Can you try that and let me know if it works for you?

Take care,

Shannon | Atlassian Community Support

Hi Shannon,

thank you very much for the tip with the Legacy editor hint and the "Convert Markdown to Confluence" website, it will help me solve my problem.
