Turn off JIRA create issue inside of confluence


I would like to turn this feature off when you highlight text in confluence - can anyone point me to the configuration? I cannot for the life of me find how to disable this feature.

Image below describes what I would like to disable.

I ended up using CSS to hide the buttons when you highlight text...

1. Go to Confluence Admin

2. Go to Add-ons

3. Click on "Global Templates"

4. Edit "Product Requirements"

5. Click box under Requirements>Title where it says "Short identifier...."

6. Select "Text"

7. Save.

Hi Mehmet,

The box is already set to 'text' - any thoughts?



Hi Chris,

It seems like it still has the macro running. Can you try to "remove" and save?

I do not have an OnDemand env to test, but that might work.


Hi Mehmet,

Still showing after removing...


Hi Chris,

You removed that in Global Template and saved, right? Because I just tested it on my installed version and macros are disabled. Just to verify:

  1. Verify that you removed the Macro in the Confluence Admin>Prod Req Global Template and save
  2. Create a new Prod Req page and test.

See my screenshot in the GLobal Template:

Hi Mehmet,

Yes, I removed the title in the global template as you indicated. Click on title, hit remove, save.

When I highlight text in a space the two icons still display:

- quote in comment

- create jira issue

Here is the global template screenshot.


Hi Chris,

Then I think it might be an issue where OnDemand version might be overwriting the global template macro changes. I would create a support ticket.

Sorry, I could not help more.


Thanks for your help - I am using the download version - I'll play around a bit more before opening the request.

Thanks again
