Custom Status Label markdown


Does anyone know how I can use the Custom Status Label as either markdown or some other format so that I can add it to an automation rule which updates the issue description.



I think on Confluence you can use {status} but doesn't work on Jira Software (Cloud).

We have the option to add the panels but can't seem to find anything for status labels.

h1. Checklist

{status:colour=Green|title=On track|subtle=true}

This error panel

h2. heading 2

h3. heading 3

* List 1 {status:colour=Green|title=On track|subtle=true}
* List 2 {status:colour=Red|title=On track|subtle=true}

If it does not exist, I will submit a suggestion to add.

Can you clarify what you are trying to accomplish? I don't think I understand what you are actually trying to implement or what purpose it will serve.

Hi Trudy,

I am simply trying to add custom status label when updating the description via automation rule.

For example:


We can add panels by using the following in the description:

Error info panel

I need to update ticket descriptions with custom status labels when they transition to a different status.


When I use browser tools to inspect the source of a Confluence page that has one of those Status elements, this is the code it shows. I don't think you can use this directly in the mark down in JIRA.

I have not found any solution in my searching, but I did find somebody asked a similar question in 2019

Hello @Kam Miah ! That is a great idea!

Have you been able to implement this?
