Integrating on demand JIRA with in-house confluence


I have subscribed to JIRA on Demand and also run in house confluence. I would like to integrate JIRA filters in Confluence page. When adding the JIRA issue macro - I entered the RSS feed likn under URL.

It gave me following error -

This table displays contents from an external source. The contents will be displayed as HTML. If you trust the security of this source, you can display the original formatting and avoid this warning by creating an Application Link to this JIRA instance.

what link should I put in the Application Link ? Can someone direct me to any guides how to use this .

Hi Pinaki,

Unfortunately you could not configure Application link, between OnDemand and Standalone installation due to restricted function in OnDemand. However, you could add the OnDemand URL to whitelist URL from Confluence side. You can chieve this, by navigating to Confluence Admin >> Configure Whitelist. However, if yuor JIRA is restricted from public, you need to pass the credential through the URL. If you are not sure on how to use this, please refer to this documentation.

Cheers, Josua

Hi - I have done that (ie adding the link with password to the whitelist). However I am still confused how do I actually incorporate the issue report in the confluence page. I know I can use the JIRA macro, is this the best way to go about ?

Oh what I meant is adding the username and password by embedding it to XML URL from your JIRA filter. When you configure the whitelist, there's no need to add the username and password. In order to make the issues displayed in Confluence page, in editor mode navigate to Insert >> Other Macros >> JIRA Issues Macro, >> Insert the XML URL while adding the username and password at the end.

Thanks for the quick reply. I check the white list and it looks like nothing is restricted. I will try passing it with pasword and user name. A quick question - the XML link do i need to modify before adding to the JIRA ISSUE MACRO URL field ?

Yep, you need to modify the XML link by adding the username and password. In whitelist, there's no need to add any user name and password, and please bear in mind that it's a whitelist not a blacklist, therefore if it's empty, it means everything else is restricted. You need to put certain URL to whitelist the site. Cheers!

i tried putting the XML in the JIRA issue macro - I get following error -

Error rendering macro 'jiraissues' : java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "1000?os_username

HI this time i removed the os_username&os_password part and simply put the XML link.

I get the message The host did not accept the connection within timeout of 10000 ms<br/>class org.apache.commons.httpclient.ConnectTimeoutException
