Is there a way to view tasks from Jira in your task report in confluence?

It seems like I can only view tasks related to spaces in confluence, but I'm looking to view tasks that I have related to specific stories/epics/sub tasks inside of Jira all in once place.  The task manager seems a bit clunky.

Hello Brian,

Did you try JIRA Issues macro?

Andrey, I just added that in, which is great, it shows me the isues taht are assigned to me that are open, when putting the proger JQL into the filter. But now the tasks that I had created in Confluence are no longer there. Can I update the query to include tasks in my spaces?

Ultimately, the use case is that I have many tickets/issues open that may require me to jump in and out of them based on different requirements. For instance, Jane sends me a request, I create a ticket, and then I need to create a meeting to go over the requirements.  Jane is not very good at getting back in a timely manner, so I want to create a task to 'FU with Jane on requirements meeting'.  Then if it is due, I know to follow up with her if she hasn't gotten back. Or, I might have an issue that I have to prepare training matierals, but I have other priorities, and the training materials aren't due until 5/15, so I put a task for 5/14 to 'Finish training docs'.   Make sense?

It is not possible to show Confluence tasks and JIRA issues with one macro, so you need to use both Task Report and JIRA Issues macro.

And there is Handy Macros add-on which has a Reminder macro that might be helpful in your case.

Hi Andrey, 

Yes I did try the issues macro, and I think I'm close to getting to where I need to be, thanks so much for your advice!
