Display confluence taks in JIRA dashboard

We are using both JIRA and Confluence on the cloud. How can I see Confluence Tasks in JIRA dashboard? I read somewhere about 'Confluence Page Gadget', but not able to see the same.

Hi Rajesh,

I think you should take a look at this documentation :

Integrating JIRA and Confluence

Use JIRA applications and Confluence together

Linking a Confluence page to an EPIC

This will explain how to link JIRA and Confluence. I don't use it, so I can't really tell you whether it's what you're looking for or not, but I do hope this will help.



Thank you very much, Vincent. Currently, we have integrated Confluence and JIRA, which works well. Yes, when creating product requirements in Confluence we are attaching to an epic. Currently, we are managing confluence tasks (say meeting action items) as mentioned in below answer by the support. I am looking how we can avoid the additional step of creating JIRA task (as action items are already created in Confluence), and show as a summary in JIRA dashboard.

Hi Rajesh, 

when you create content in Confluence say you create tasks summary and you would like to link them with JIRA, this is what you need to do:

Step 1

  • create a task in Confluence - highlight it 
  • Select Insert JIRA/Issue Filter

Step 2

  • click Create New Issue
  • select the project
  • select issue type
  • add Summary and Description

once that is done you can actually start filtering JIRA to display Confluence tasks


I hope this helps

Thank you very much. Currently, we are managing this way. Is there any way we can avoid additional steps (Step 2)? For example meeting action items to appear in JIRA dashboard, needs to create JIRA task for all. All these action items not necessarily always attached to a project. Is there any way confluence tasks can be added as a Gadget?
