What I would like to achieve is the possibility for a user who creates (or update) an issue to link a confluence specific content to the JIRA issue in a way that it will appear as the issue description field.
The case is quite simple since the functionnal analysis is realized in confluence and the task belong to JIRA. We would like to avoid redundancy and keep confluence as the single point of content redaction. A simple link to the confluence page is possible but not so user-friendly since the user has to open another page a search for the right information.
I struggled with ScriptRunner possibilities before I realized the used of scripted field was not possible with JIRA cloud version.
Is there any way to achieve this?
Nothing exists in cloud. For those on server there's plugin (i know it doesnt help with the original question but may help those who are finding this post via search). https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1211312/confluence-issue-tab-plugin-for-jira?hosting=server&tab=overview
I wouldnt recommend doing this via scriptrunner as the best you'll get is a few scripts that copy over page contents to a jira field. You'll run into a bunch of issues and edge case3s trying to keep the field in sync with confluence.
The better route would be to write a cloud addon that pulls the confluence page content into the issue as a web panel https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/modules/web-panel/
