Pass a URL/querystring parameter to a dashboard gadget

Hi all,

Rather than hard coding parameter values on a dashboard gadget, is it at all possible to reference a URL/querystring parameter so the gadget will dynamically update on page load?

Thank you,

Hello there, @Vicky Blease!

I am not sure if your current situation is related to Confluence. I believe that you are referencing Jira. Is that correct?

Maybe our documentation can help you with this matter:

Let us hear from you!

Hi Diego, thanks for your response! :)

Specifically I'm talking about Jira gadgets, apologies for any confusion.

A couple of those links you have shared don't work :(

Am I clear with my question?

I want to be able to request a dashboard on a URL such as


and the bold text be automatically populated in the gadget field:


This means the user won't have to edit the gadget properties whenever they want to update the dashboard. Rather I can update the presentation of the content using the URL querystring (bold text above).

I was hoping there would be a built in Jira function, so that in the URL parameters field I could write something like $JQL or ? or {JQL} or *SOMETHING* that would tell the gadget to fetch the value of the querystring parameter JQL.

Any ideas?

Thank you again!

I would also like to be able to do this or something similar to allow for a single dashboard to be created and used by multiple teams without having to duplicate the dashboards for each team.

Can we get an suggested solution for this?
