"Epic name" column in JIRA macro for Confluence displays nothing"Epic name" column in JIRA macro for Confluence displays nothing

Summary

When using the JIRA macro in Confluence, is not possible to get the Epic name displayed on it. It is possible to select it "Epic name" as one of the columns, but it will have no content. If we add another column related to the epic, like "Epic Link" for example, it does show this data.

Environment

Confluence server 5.9.9

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create an epic in JIRA
  2. Create a document in Confluence and add the JIRA macro
  3. After searching for the epic, add Epic name as one of the columns you want to display

 

Expected Results

The name of the epic would be displayed in the Epic name column

Actual Results

Nothing is displayed

Epic Name field is ONLY associated with issuetype of Epic.  So when you query tasks or stories, Epic name should be empty.  When you create an Epic, the Epic Name is what will show in the Agile board versus the Summary of the epic issue.

What you want is Epic-Link.  This field is what ties, for example, a story to an epic.
