Wrong display of Checklists in Confluence using Jira Addon

Hi!

We are using the checklist addon in JIRA to help us formalize Definitions of Ready and Definitions of Done. We're also using Confluence and include informations about JIRA-issues in Confluence pages.

However, using the checklist addon, the displayed checklists differ from the ones in JIRA.

This is the view in JIRA:

And this is how it looks in Confluence:

As you can see there are no checkboxes in Confluence. Please provide a view in Confluence as well.

Kind regards

Dennis

Hi Dennis,

Checklist does output a checkbox in all views except for Excel and XML export. So my guess is that the Confluence integration is actually stripping those away. You can also see in your image that Confluence replaces the line breaks with " \ " to separate the items (something that Checklist doesn't do at all).

I will try to take a deeper look into it but I don`t think that I can do anything about it.

Regards,

Yves

Hi Yves!


Did you find anything about this?

 

Thanks!

Hi Dennis,

Unfortunately, Confluence is using its own rendering engine. It simply takes the data from the column and renders it itself. Since the rendering logic is on the JIRA side, you will never be able to have the same visual output.
