Is there a way to add an assignee when we create a Jira issue in a Confluence page ?

I would like to know if there is a way to add an assignee when we create a Jira Issue in a confluence page ?

I don't understand why "Assignee" option is missing here:

I have exactly the same question. It's really needed

You can try setting up default assignee in JIRA, so created issues will be auto-assigned.

There has to be a way to get assignee, this really makes no sense to not have.


Does anyone know if there is a plugin that would fix this? It would make Action items in meeting notes actually useful, as I could create all the issues I need directly from the meeting notes. Instead, I create them in Confluence.. Then have to go into JIRA and set all the asignee's to the proper people. If I could just do it all in Confluence, it would be a much much better user experience.

comme on!!!! so needed, Atlassian is making efforts in wrong aspects...

We use Atlassian products for improving our productivity in our company. This said, the procedure of creating an issue out of Confluence is a mess. If I am not able to create an issue with the assignee out of Confluence the function is completely useless.

Is there a feature request for this we can vote for already?

Is there still no way to configure the Confluence "Create Issue" dialogue?!


It is currently absolutely useless for us since it requires the user to go into Jira and change the issues data (like assignee, story points, sprint and more) manually anyways.

See "Have an assignee field when creating a JIRA issue from Confluence.", Just voted for it.

Like Martin Hilbig likes this

This is a feature that would be incredibly helpful to my team as well. 

or you could use auto assign via components & assign to component lead

or you could do it via the create transition of the workflow

Agreed, if I highlight some text in Confluence and I want to create a JIRA issue out of it I want to be assigning it to someone.

Typically we do this out of meeting notes where action items are assigned to someone, so it'll cause a disconnect when trying to remember who that action item was assigned to when going back into JIRA.

Has anybody an answer? Thank you.

How the hell is this not fixed after 5 years is beyond udnerstanding.

is there an answer?
