Jira Macro C&P


I am currently writing a little plugin for my IDE which exports release notes in a given format so I can simply paste it to Confluence and have it publicly available. My question is if there is a format which can be parsed and recognized into a jira macro when pasted?

My attempts so far: 


* {jira key=PRJ-124}

The second way assumes that there is possibility to set a macros properties in some kind of key value way, which would be best and most flexible I guess.

Hi @blatzfab How are you doing?

I am not sure there is a way to do it directly into the Editor.

But you could generate you text in the Confluence Markup format and then include it in the page going to Insert > Markup and pasting it.

This is what a Jira Macro looks like when using Confluence Markup:


To confirm these parameter values for your installation, insert a Jira Macro in the page as usual and go to View Storage Format. There you will see the parameter names and values for the macro.

Hope this helps!

Hey @Cristiano_Oliveira ,

Doing fine :), hope you as well.

Thanks a lot, this helps me already a bunch. The only issue now is that if I paste multiple lines of this at once:


 The conversion into the macro does not work anymore

hI @blatzfab !

I am using Confluence 6.12.2 and Jira 7.13.0 and the conversion worked normally. these two lines you put became two macros.

Maybe you could use only one macro with a JQL query like this:

{jira:server=Jira|serverId=WWW-WWW-WWW-WWW|jqlQuery=key in (PRJ-17520,PRJ-16691)}

Hope this helps!
