I was not able to find the in the documentation for "globalId" definition and how to get it on the server.
Could you please help to find the documentation for it?
I would like to try out the built-in JQL function "issuesWithRemoteLinksByGlobalId()" to list issues linked with pages towards our Confluence server.
The only documentation what is touching the topic:
Late to the party here, but I had to learn this trick today and thought I'd share my results, since it isn't well-documented.
These steps will seem a bit backwards, but bear with me. For this example I'm assuming you're using cloud Jira and Confluence, so your applications are hosted at https://example.atlassian.net/.
"relationship": "mentioned in",
. . .
issue in issuesWithRemoteLinksByGlobalId("abc-123-cde-456&pageId=987654")
Finding the appId is the hard part of this, and the reason we've done this whole silly API request. Once you've identified your appId using the steps above, you can construct queries using any Confluence pageId by replacing the pageId bit of the query (987654) with the ID of any page on Confluence. The pageId is, of course, the number after /pages/ in the Confluence page's URL. Now you're equipped to use issuesWithRemoteLinksByGlobalId() against any page in your Confluence instance.
Hope that helps!
Thank you! This is really useful.
In the meantime we started to use a plugin for this kind of query:
But still this JQL trick can be really useful for scripts!
Have a great day!
This is an old question but I recently encountered it and will offer what I have found. I used the REST API to get an example of a global ID. It doesn't appear to be something you can find from the UI. Not entirely anyway. What I found on our systems is that the global ID is in the following format "appId=<Confluence AppID GUID>&pageId=<Confluence Page ID>". I tried a couple of different JIRA issues mentioned in various pages and it seems the appID is always the same for the same Confluence instance and the pageId is what you find in the URL on Confluence. When I query in JQL using this Global Id it appears to only match JIRA Issues that are mentioned in Confluence using the JIRA Macro in Confluence. Simply stating the JIRA ID in Confluence is not enough or it to be "Mentioned In".
I hope this helps.
Hey i have no answer to give, i am here to ask some questions.
My Scenario is :
In our JIRA, there are some issues which are linked to remote applications which i do not have access, when i filter all those issues and export to excel, there are no links shown related to the remote applications in the exported excel.
Can you please help me to get an solution for it.
Suggest me if this can be achieved by REST API.
Thanks in advance.
