Dear Nageswarara,

Looking at the gadget URL, I believe that you wanted to add JIRA gadget to your Confluence instance:
- http://localhost:9080/browse/TST-1/rest/gadgets/1.0/g/feed

Since this is the case, I believe that the gadget is failed to be added to Confluence because it is not a valid gadget URL. From what I understand, the following URL is the URL format for a JIRA issue:

Hence, you may kindly try to add JIRA gadget as follows:
- Access JIRA dashboard, select the "Add Gadget" option
- JIRA Gadget Directory will appear in the screen
- Go to the gadget that you would like to add to Confluence
- Notice that gadgets URL is displayed for each of the displayed gadgets. Copy the gadget URL
- Access Confluence, and go to External Gadgets screen
- Paste the copied JIRA gadget URL, to the Gadget Feed URL

More details on this is outlined in the following documentation:

However, kindly note that you will have to setup an application link between JIRA and Confluence prior to adding JIRA gadget to Confluence.

Hope that this will help!

HI Nageswarara,

That URL looks like it is incorrect. Usually the gadget feed should just be the baseurl plus rest/gadgets/1.0/g/feed, so in your case:


I just removed the reference to the specific project in the URL. That should work for you! If you still have trouble I'd recommend double checking everything in the doc here:

Hope this helps!
