Jira Automation to Create a Whiteboard

Fabio Oliveira Silva March 22, 2024

Recently it was launched a new Jira Automation action to create confluence pages, which is nice: https://support.atlassian.com/cloud-automation/docs/use-jira-automation-with-confluence/

 

The problem is that this automation is pretty basic and does not allow to edit the content of the page itself. Also, it only supports basic pages but not other formats like blog posts, whiteboards, and database

 

There is another and more advanced way to create a Confluence page with content, using webhooks as we can see in this article: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-articles/Automating-the-creation-of-a-Confluence-page-linked-to-a-Jira/ba-p/1760738

 

The problem is that we cannot use templates using API as I understand. We have other APIs available for other content formats, for example, whiteboards we have this one:
https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/confluence/rest/v2/api-group-whiteboard/#api-whiteboards-post but again we cannot even use a template or modify content using this API.

My use case is to create a confluence page or whiteboard when closing a Spring, with some basic Sprint data, like issues closed, points closed, and Sprint report graphs and use this page as a retro input. We can always do this manually but if we can have an automation do to this for us it will be much better. A copy page action is also useful if we can use a previous retro page or create one just for templating. In the future I would lot to have an AI summary to start the retro with some useful content just to review

Hi @Fabio Oliveira Silva ,

For the use case "My use case is to create a confluence page or whiteboard when closing a Spring, with some basic Sprint data, like issues closed, points closed, and Sprint report graphs and use this page as a retro input": What you're looking for sounds quite close to https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1223567/automated-release-notes-for-jira-free?hosting=cloud&tab=overview.
