Jira legacy macro and Variables

Jesse Berkeley February 21, 2024

Hi Community,

Prior to our upgrade from Confluence Server to Cloud I would have used a template to create release notes by using the Page Properties with some variables in there for a Jira Release ticket ID. This variable would also be used to populate the key needed for a "JQL Filter Allowing Variables" to return certain columns. In doing some research it seems to not exist as a macro on the Cloud version anymore. I've found the Jira Legacy Macro to be something I can use but has anyone found a way to use the Jira Legacy Macro with Variables so it filters based on the custom variables?

I can't see much evidence of this and its a bit annoying to think that ALL our pages having been created on a template is now lost. Any ideas on this would be appreciated thanks!

Hi @Humashankar VJ

Thanks again but the list provided doesn't help to address my original query of there being a Macro for me to use to pull the JQL via the variable. Do appreciate the suggestion so will keep searching.

Hi @Humashankar VJ 

Thanks for the reply on this. Your first link leads to a 404 because of the trailing "/0" after the "review-macros-only-available-in-the-legacy-editor/editor/". Also I believe your sentence was left open ended what was your suggestion?
