When inserting an Issue Collector into Confluence can you add in Drop Down's?

Bradley February 23, 2024

Essentially what I am wanting to do is to create multiple drop down menu's in my issue collectors in Confluence to limit the options that can be inputted into the Issue collectors. Is this possible and if so what would the HTML for that look like? 

 

So for example Maybe I want to make summary a drop down so they can only choose from a  few summaries.  Or maybe I want to make acceptance criteria a drop down and have it only be a couple of options that they can choose from. Is this possible? And if so what would be the HTML code to do so?

@Bradley issue collectors are limited to the configuration that can be done when setting the issue collector up. https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver/using-the-issue-collector-938847338.html 

If you created custom code you would have to write custom JavaScript and locally host it.  Then every update test validate and maintain the code. You would have to be on Datacenter to do this anyways.

I mean is this is the only way in which to do it. I just don't get why Atlassian would create such an almost useless item that's hardly useable to bring things into a product model. I mean I would think they would want the end user to be able to customize the issue collector to their specifications instead of making it so difficult to work with. Especially if they are trying to be the number one agile tool.

@Bradley the issue collector is a simple way to embed a feature that anyone can use on a page and has limited functionality.  If you are looking for more robust functionality I would suggest using the API.  https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/REST/7.6.1/ 

The API will allow you to build your own form, that functions however you would like it to, and capture the data that you want.
