How can I (automatically) make a burn down chart and/or sprint report visible in Confluence?

As I would like to make a dashboard in confluence to inform stakeholders within my organisation on the status of dev work. I would like to extract a burn down chart and sprint report into the document I created in Confluence. To prevent it will take too much time to create, I hope there is an opportunity that this can be created by a single action or even automatically.

Hi Sven,

There is a Communities post titled How do I embed Jira Agile Sprint Burndown Chart in a Confluence page? that can help:


You'll want to ensure you have application links configured as described here:

Then you will just add the desired gadgets to a confluence page and configure:

Hope this helps!



I've come across that answer as well but the only charts I can add are

- pie chart

- created vs resolved

- 2 dimensional


Nothing related to the specific sprint report: burndown, velocity chart, etc


Am I missing some configuration?

I have the same question. I assume burndown chart will be one of the Two Dimensional Charts, but couldn't figure out the way to insert the Macro. Does anyone know?

When editing a Confluence page click on the "+" icon at the end of the toolbar on right. Select Other Macros. Choose your gadget.

We passed that point already. After select "Other Macros", choose "Jira Charts". then we are stuck there with options:

- pie chart

- created vs resolved

- 2 dimensional

I'm having the Same issue as Alice.  The three available chart types are all very basic and mostly useless.  Is there any way to embed the boards directly from JIRA?

Any more detailed instructions for this? Did anyone work it out?

I am keen to get a mirror of my sprint burn-down report into a confluence page.

I am able to see the Sprint Burndown in my Cloud instance of Confluence.

  1. click “+”
  2. other macros
  3. Type “sprint” in the search box
  4. add gadget
  5. configure

Typed ‘sprint’ in the search box but nothing comes up. It is not Cloud instance.

maybe not available in server. unsure.

Any other way to pull Sprint Burndown chart in Confluence?

Server instances:
You may need to configure External Gadgets in order to add the Jira gadgets. Follow the bouncing ball at:

Cloud instances:
Gadgets are already setup (see @Jack Brickey response above).

HOWEVER, Jira Gadgets on the fancy New Editing Experience DO NOT WORK (insert remark about luring billionaires back for a bit of User Testing).
Instead use the tried and true old editing experience and bring your Jira Burndown reports to life!
