Show JIRA issues that link to this Confluence Page

I know JIRA automatically shows in an issue any Confluence page that refers to that issue... but is it possible to go the other way? Is there a way to get a Confluence page to list all issues that refer to it?

I know it's possible to use the JIRA issues macro to embed a search... but the list of issues never seems to update, even when more issues that would match the query are added.

Hi Liviu,

Thanks for your feedback, we are actually working on this new feature right now. From the Confluence page you can click to see all the linked JIRA issues. Here is a sneak peak:

Is that what you are after?

I'm interested to hear what you would use this for

This would be great - although, of course, I would prefer to also be able to include the list of issues in the page content.

Realy looking forward to this feature, thanks!

Also, to answer your question: we are tracking the maintenance of certain pieces of equipment via JIRA, and we would like completed and upcoming maintenance tasks for each piece of equipment to appear automatically on that equipment's Confluence page (which stores things like serial numbers, etc.).

That feature looks useful Sherif - do you have an issue id we can track it with?

This feature does not yet seem to be part of Confluence (as of 5.5). As mentioned above, is there an issue id that one may track it progress under? Thanks.

Check out this atlassian blog: http://blogs.atlassian.com/2013/12/5-ways-work-jira-issues-confluence/

It looks like it was released last year. I know I have it on my installation on Conf5.4.4

Any news on this issue?

The demand for this feature is high. Any news?

If you have JQL Tricks plugin installed in your JIRA, you can serach for issues with remote links like this:

jqlField = "http://your_Confluence_page_link"

You can then use this in the JIRA issues macro and the page will show all issues linked to it.

This is a great answer, thank you.

Unfortunately, searches like this don't seem to update... so I'd be stuck with the list of issues that matched the search when I created the page. I'd like something where linking a new issue to the page will cause it to appear on the page.

Hello @Jobin_Kuruvilla__Go2Group_,

This is not working for confluence child page which has issues listed using macros and also has some presentation on the page. Can you please guide, how to query those issues in jira from this page.

Thanks in advance,

-Deepali

This feature will be very useful, is there an ETA for when this will be available?

Any news on this issue?

Any news?

any updates on this from ATLASSIAN team? 

i'm also interested in this feature but am also wondering why that accepted answer talks about another feature that not quite fits the OP's request...

Hey there,

From your description my suspect is you hit a bug where the issue is not getting updated shown below:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-30077

So as a workaround, you will need to flush the caches in Confluence:

  1. Go to the page "Confluence Admin >> Cache Statistics >> Advanced"
  2. Search for the term "JIRA Issues".
  3. Change the value from "100" (default) to "1"
  4. Click the button "Adjust Size" to enable the change.

Hope this address your issue.

I don't think that is what Liviu is asking about. He is trying to see if there is a Confluence feature that lists all the issues linked to it. You're talking about going the other way.

I could use this ability as well. 

@Sherif_Mansour  , @richie_gee , @Steven_Behnke  --- Unless I'm mistaken this Feature never happened -- Since this is marked as solved, should we create a new product feedback? 

This is presently the top search result for this feature:

https://www.google.com/search?q=show+all+jira+issues+that+link+confluence+page&oq=show+all+jira+issues+that+link+confluence+page&aqs=chrome..69i57j33.12114j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

To be clear, I want essentially a new option in the Page Properties Report macro which has a simple option that would say "Show all Jira incidents which link to this present page".

This way, instead of trying to manually add labels or Hard coding it, I could easily (and automatically) show everything on my project page we're doing in relation to it.

Right now, the options are way too clunky and not intuitive. Doing this (or something similar to my solution) would be incredibly helpful and streamline cohesiveness between the two products.

I'd like to do this with Help desk tickets as well, though thats another battle in of itself.


I shouldn't have to resort to a paid marketplace app for this, as its relatively basic functionality.

I commented on this once nearly six years ago. It’s very silly that you’ve pinged me here. I’m just another customer. 

The feature works as advertised and works well. You want it to work differently. Oh, but you don’t want to pay for it?! Shocking.

What project did you transition or start on Confluence with the shift to remote work?

It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
