Creating report template in Atlassian hosted

I would like to create a new template for generating release notes. I have been looking into the documentation "https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA041/Creating+a+Custom+Release+Notes+Template+Containing+Release+Comments" but it seems is related to an self-hosted Atlassian instance nor in the Cloud (it tlaks about modifying files and directories...).

So I was wondering, how can I modify the release notes template in a cloud based instance of the JIRA?

Thanks.

Regards.

Your instincts are correct - you can't change them on Cloud.

I thought it was just a question of creating a template in Confluence and configuring somehow generation releases process in JIRA to use the template already defined in Confluence... 

Is it not so "easy" as that?

David, if you'd have the Confluence tool hooked up to JIRA as it seems like you say it does, we can use that instead. The link you posted was for a very old version of JIRA and requires code changes (template changes) and a server restart to achieve. That old method is impossible on Atlassian Cloud.

The new method with Confluence is to simply use the JIRA Reports Blueprint.
