I think the first question to answer here is, what do you consider to be release notes? Just a list of all issues in a release? Or should there be comments with them or something? I think that at the very least you could write a script which would parse JIRA's REST API and then push a page into your Confluence via the API there.

we need only jira issues with its status as our release notes.

I think the easiest way to do this would be to have a server running which accepts POST requests from JIRA via Webhooks ( and then uses the information to identify the appropriate page in Confluence, and updates that using the REST API
