We have our Project Reviews entered in JIRA (as a special Review issue type)
I know how to get a feed of JIRA issues in Confluence - so we can already, for example, get a list of the Actions for a Review because Action are just tasks which are linked to the Review issue.
However, it would be very good if we could view the comments for a JIRA review issue in Confluence.
Is this possible?
Our current implementation of Application Links does not allow for embedding of comments from JIRA issues inside of Confluence. I am more than happy to file a feature request for this sort of behavior. If you would not mind providing further information about how you would like this feature to function we would be much obliged to add it to our tracker.
An alternative solution would be for you to use the SQL plugin to extract the raw information directly from the JIRA database.
You would need to configure a data source that points to your JIRA database in order to extract that information. Details on how to set up this datasource are included below.
Please let us know if you have any further questions or have further specifications for this new feature.
Thanks for the informative response.
We are using Confluence spaces as our main management portal for our development projects, and are using JIRA to record project reviews. The aim is to be able to pull in to Confluence the comments for a particular review, so that we can seem them in Confluence rather than having to click through a link to JIRA to view them.
Does this give you enough information? If not, I'm more than happy to expand!
CLI Plugin for Confluence can be used to access JIRA and put the results on a page. Retrieve comments as a csv using getCommentList and use the CSV Macro or you can get a text representation of all comments for an issue by using getComments with something like:
jira --action getComments --issue XXX-15

OK thanks I have the macros parameter now.
But still I don't see how to embed the CLI Macro into the CSV Macro. The Insert More Content button is disabled inside the CSV Macro. And if I copy/paste a CLI Macro into the CSV Macro it keeps only the body of the CLI Macro and not the CLI Macro itself.
The examples you mentionned do use CSV attachements. Do you have any example where the CSV Macro renders the output of the CLI Macro dynamically?
I took the liberty to create an improvement request to have such feature in Confluence as you can see below:
I would strongly suggest that you vote on this issue to increase its popularity and add it to your watchlist for future updates.
