How do I dynamically list a set of JIRA dashboards in a Confluence page; not render them?

Looking for a better way to collect and manage our team and department dashboards.  It's difficult for someone to go into JIRA and find a dashboard if they don't know how it was saved; short of creating their own view.

 

The current workaround is maintaining a manual hyperlinked list to the various JIRA dashboards within Confluence.  There's got to be a better way to identify a dashboard object to do a query and display this in Confluence?

There's no way to generate a dynamic list of JIRA Dashboards in Confluence out-of-the-box, no.

Edit: You could write a simple User Macro that accomplished this with Javascript for instance –JIRA has an API to get all dashboards. https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/cloud/#api/2/dashboard

Thanks.

I was hoping there'd be an easy way to identify a Dashboard ObjectID and then discriminate based on names.

I've only poked at this a little, but you could try your hand as well. I need to refactor this into functions before I keep working at it.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
