I would like to get an array with all my epics and in one column to get the stories that have that epic.
I am looking for the same kind of display that I can get with Link for example when I link 2 stories.
Epic Link is going the over way around, Link does not show the user stories.
Just to clarify, the output would be
on the line, the epic name and the columns would be the story status, like Opne, in progress, Done.
Then each column would contain the number of stories that are in that status.
Thanks for any help.
1. Go to the advanced search in your JIRA Project with the epic
2. click on "+ more"
3. check the entry "Epic Link"
4. search for the epic(s) you want to have in your conlunce table
5. once you configured the filter as you want, copy the link of the address bar
6. go to your confluence page
7. Insert Jira issue/filter
8. paste the link in the box
9. display options: configure the the table as you want
Hi @Peter Tresenreiter thanks for your answer, however, it seems like you didn't get what we are looking for.
I'm looking to build the table which will show me all my epics for the project with the breakdown to user stories that belong to each epic and ideally their status.
I can't put the table to this comment, so something like that:
Epic is the first column, linked user stories are in the second column.
We can recommend you our Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app to work with Jira Issues macro in your cases.
You'll be able make pivots to count, for eхample, the numbers of issue types and display issues per assignee (or user stories per epics), also sort your issues on the fly like in Excel, save the required filters for other users and even transform and visualize data.
Here are some examples of dashboards created using the Jira Issues macro and the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app.
If your Confluence instance is Cloud, you'll need the Table Toolbox macro to nest other macros. Other steps are the same.
Maybe this link below have additional information which you are looking for:
If you need more information, please let me know.
All the best,
Thanks, I also reviewed that page and it is describing how to create a link between an epic and a confluence page. What I am looking for is how to add to a confluence page a Jira report that would contains all the epics and in each epic row the list of user stories that are connected to the epic, the same way you can list jira stories and their linked stories.
1. Create advanced filter in Jira
"Epic Link" = Name of Epic
* Name of Epic will probably change to an ID automatically, nothing to worry about.
2. Insert Jira issue/filter macro to a confluence page using
filter = "Name of Epic"
2.b Set display option to Table.
This question was asked back in 2014. Has anyone in Atlassian looked into this? If the functionality is not available please let me know. I also looked into exporting our backlog data to then copy and paste into a Confluence report so that I can display Epic Name and Story together, no joy here either. Without the Epic name our sprint/issues are meaningless to Senior Management.
Please review our documentation below regarding JIRA agile and Confluence integration:
I hope the mentioned feature above fulfill your requirement on this.
I have the same need, display the epic name, issue name in a single list. Only thing that seem to be appearing is the issue link and it is just displaying the epic key. I would like to pull the epic name on to the report. I find JQL working while executing from JIRA, it is just that confluence is not displaying it.
dLaurendeau, I also am trying to do this in Confluence server.
When you refer to "structure", do you mean you were able do incorporate the output of multiple epics with nested stories/features in one go, or did you have to do it per epic? If the former, I would love to lean how you did it!
Yes, in the hosted version I could create a list of all Features (or a subset if I didn't want to see all - in the hosted version we have Features that are equivalent to cloud epics). A structure is a container that could hold Features. There was a down arrow available and I could expand one or more Features and see all the stories underneath them. I could choose the columns that would show across the screen. I am now on Jira Cloud at my current gig and there are no Structures available.
I can use a query in Confluence with "parentepic" and I can get multiple epics and all of their associated stories but the stories don't nest under the epics. The alternative is to create multiple "parentepic" queries on a single Confluence page. It works, you can get an epic with all the associated stories nested under it but each query will have a different width for the same column and the Confluence page looks messy. That said, it does work.
I was trying to solve the same issue today. Jira doesn't provide an out-of-box solution.
It can be achieved with Structure addon.
It will show you all of the issues under an epic, which you can further filter out by JQL.
The plugin provides several views. One of them is Tracking. It shows a percentage of completion for each epic, based on the issues that are linked to that epic.
I figured out a work-around that may work for you. It works for me and I was looking for a similar setup.
When using the "Insert JIRA Issue/Filter" tool in Confluence, use Search and type in: "key = ecom-167 OR parent = ecom-167".
NOTE: ecom-167 is the Epic and this will pull in the epic as well as all child tasks.
the proposed one did not work for me, but this filter did:
"Epic Link" = [insert JIRA Epic number here]
it seems it depends on the individual jira configuration, so just check with your admin, which parameter could be used. the filter basically just uses the filter that is used for issue search in order to create lists matching a certain criteria.
