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.
