Jira Issue Filters Macro - Show to Confluence-only Users?

We have a set of people who have access to Confluence but not Jira, so they do have Atlassian accounts. We want to give them some *very* basic transparency about what items are already in a project backlog so that they can know that their bug or feature request is already a known item.

I was hoping that I could create a Confluence page that would embed the backlog with the Jira Issue Filters Macro - all the users would need to do is scroll through the list, they don't need to click through to see individual issues or take any action on them in Jira itself.

However, upon setting this up, I'm being told by these folks that they cannot see any issues on the page, instead being given a permissions error:

Frustratingly, when I use the Permission Helper, it seems to indicate this person ought to be able to browse the project and thus view the issues:

What am I missing here?

Hi @Louis Hellman - This will not work if the users do not have access to the JIRA filter that you have used in your Jira Issue/Filter macro. So the users should also have JIRA access if they want to view the issues on the Confluence page via the Jira issue/filter macro.
