Using the Jira Macro (table) is not displaying the confluence page in the "mentioned in" section of the JIRA issue

Using the JIRA Macro in confluence is supposed to list the Confluence page in the JIRA issue under the "mentioned in" section. This auto-linking functionality works when using the single issue JIRA Macro option, but not when using a the "table" option.

Has anyone else experienced this?... or is this by design for some reason?

Hi Steve,

When you meant "table" does it mean you are using JIRA search which return more than one tickets using one macro?

If that is the case, I believe it is by design as the auto-linking meant for single JIRA issue mentioned in Confluence page.

Hope it clarify.

Hi Septa,

Yes, that's exactly what I'm doing. When I insert the JIRA Macro on a confluence page, I'm able to add the macro as either a single issue or a table of many issues. I prefer to use the table macro as I need to see the additional fields from the JIRA issue, and not just the summary/status.

I'm not sure why the auto-linking doesn't work in this case... seems to me that adding a single JIRA issue to a confluence page or a table of many should result in the same behaviour in JIRA.
