We are looking for a way to submit JIRA tickets from a confluence page. Ideally, we would like to have a html form or a plugin that will allow users to fill in a ticket from the Confluence page, and submit tickets to JIRA without having to login to the database.
Are there any good plugins available for this or any documentation available on the subject?
I think the new Issue Collector in Jira 5.1 can provide you with the functionality you are looking for, even though it is not exactly an inline form in Confluence, it gives the ability to create issues without a context switch.
If you haven't upgraded to version 5.1 yet it is also available as a plugin for Jira 5.0 from the marketplace.
I appreciate that we can create issues from email, but having an 'integrated' system of Confluence and Jira it would make more sense if they allowed embedding a form to create an issue from a Confluence page, without the need to jump through 3rd party hoops.
Looked for some submitted 'feature request' and couldn't find one, perhaps I'll create it.
I echo TJ's comments. With the current level of integration between JIRA and Confluence, this should be an out of the box feature. It is not far-fetched. It was the first thing we wanted to do when we started playing with Confluence to prototype and demo it to our organization.
I third TJ's comments. This isn't a good user experience; most of the users I'm working with don't like to go through the extra steps. The issue collector from JIRA is a way better user experience. It's sort of shocking how difficult it is to get that user experience inside of Confluence. Even just putting the JIRA widget into Confluence would be a massive improvement.
Would like to update answers with another alternative, using our add-on for capturing user inputs and creating data forms, it has a very nice integration options with JIRA, https://wiki.vertuna.com/display/CONFIFORMS/Creating+JIRA+issue+with+ConfiForms
