Jira Issues Macro with columns parameter: Only column displaying data is "key"

Hello all,

I'm using the Jira Issues macro with the parameters url and columns.

  • If the columns parameter is empty, all data is displayed nicely.
  • If there are some columns selected, only the key column contains data. All other columns are displayed, but are containing no data.

Am I missing something?

Do you have white-space after the comma between your wanted columns? In that case you will only see the first column. There is a bug report on this one: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-28783

The workaround is to remove the white-spaces:

excerpt from the bug report:

These are OK:
key;summary;labels;description;acceptance criteria
key,summary,labels,description,acceptance criteria

These only show data in the Key column:
key; summary; labels; description; acceptance criteria
key, summary, labels, description, acceptance criteria

Hope this helps!

Thank you very much, Svante.

It seemed so natural to put a white space after the comma. Removing the white spaces solved the problem.

I investigated a little further and actually it is the first column of the columns list, which is the only one containing data.
So I thought that maybe the separator I'm using might be the problem. As a separator I tried "," and ";". No difference.
