We have a use-case in which we want to provide users with a list of issues from JIRA, but not allow them access to JIRA. For example, in Confluence they would visit a page with a JIRA macro that is pulling in issues from our JIRA instance. Instead of seeing the "Authenticate" banner, they would instead see a read-only JIRA list with the Issue Number and the Headline. We don't want to give access to JIRA to everyone (and we can't, for security reasons) make use of anonymous users. We just want to display the very basic of data within our Confluence instance from JIRA using the macro without having to give each user read only access. Essentially, we want to output a table of issues based on JQL query.
Is this possible?
If you are using server version you have a couple of choices:
If you are using cloud, then you get something like this example to publish the list: getIssueList
We have Confluence locally and JIRA in the cloud (for now). I've used CLI locally on my machine before, but I wasn't aware there was a macro for it. I tried searching the marketplace and only found the CLI that I download and use locally and not one that is embedded in Confluence for pulling content. Did I miss it?
Another option is to use our plugin, ConfiREST for Confluence
You can connect to any REST/XML service (including JIRA, of course) and show the data in many ways (table, card, wysiwyg).
The plugin also acts as a proxy, you can set it up to do the authenticated connection in the background, so your users don't have to.
