Putting Control Chart and Cumulative Flow Diagram on Confluence Edited

I have a Kanban board for my team in JIRA, but I need to display the Control Chart and the Cumulative Flow Diagram on Confluence. Is there a way to have both of those visuals activity updating on one Confluence page? What I mean is I know I could screen shot them and put them on one page but I don't want to have to update the pictures, I want them to update on their own on the page.

Slightly less than ideal workaround: Use the Confluence iframe macro and insert the Cumulative Flow Diagram report from JIRA.

The top and sidebars take up a lot of space so I put it iframe in an expand macro to save space

Dose Iframes help a free macro? also if I do what you say will the chart automatically update?

When I said dose Iframe help a free macro, I meant is there already a free macro on confluence and getting Iframe would help that one. Or is Iframe just an individual macro? 

iframe is a native macro (Docs).  Just put the JIRA report URL in it and adjust the height/width.

Hi @Joanna ,

You could try our app Great Gadgets for Jira Server or Great Gadgets for Jira Cloud.

One of the 10 dashboard gadgets included is the Control Chart gadget, which is based on a Jira filter and is fully customizable and (on Jira Server / Datacenter) can be added in Confluence pages. 




We're using the gadgets from Great Gadgets - love them! I cannot figure out how to make them available in Confluence though. Can you help?

Hi @David Patterson 


The gadgets can be used in Confluence only if you have Server / Data Center.

Please make sure that they are properly imported in Confluence. See the steps here:

Once you import them, they should become available in Insert > Other Macros menu of the Confluence page editor.  

On Cloud this is not possible due to the fact that Confluence Cloud does not support yet importing gadgets from Jira apps:

For further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact


Thank you @Danut M _StonikByte_  !

Super helpful, we were able to make the Great Gadgets available in our Confluence instance.

Was the Control Chart recently released? I don't recall seeing it when we purchased the gadgets last year.

Would love to see you all provide a Created vs Resolved chart and a Defects vs Released chart as well. Jira has created vs resolved, out-of-the-box but your gadgets are aesthetically superior.

Thanks @David Patterson !

Yes, the Control Chart was recently released. You could start watching our app in Marketplace if you want to stay informed about our releases. 

You can easily add a Created vs Resolved chart with the Release Burndown / Burnup Chart gadget. Just take a look at this example. 



The link is only for cumulative flow diagrams on confluence not control? I trying to figure out control.
