Jira issue tracker table as datasource for chart macro - is that possible?

Hello everyone,

I try to display a time series chart macro inside a confluence page with a JIRA issue tracker macro as a datasource. The JIRA issue tracker macro is set to display its data as a table with only two rows visible (Created, Story Points). Unfortunately it gets not rendered.

The following error is displayed inside the confluence page:

 'chart': org.dom4j.DocumentException: Error on line 11 of document  : The entity "hellip" was referenced, but not declared. Nested exception: The entity "hellip" was referenced, but not declared.


Am I trying something that won´t be possible at all or can someone point me into the right direction what is possibly wrong?


Thanks in advance,

Hello Christoph,

Chart macro builds chart on a server side, but the JIRA Issues macro generates table on a client side. So Chart macro can't build a chart.

You can use Chart from Table macro of the Table Filter and Charts add-on. It works with JIRA Issues macro.

Thanks for your answer and suggestion. I will take a look on the add-on then.
