Can I create a Confluence page with an Automation for Jira Rule?

Hello,

I would love to automate the creation of a Confluence page when a certain type of issue is created.
Uses of this:

Automatically create that an issue needs a meeting.

Create a page where the resolution of a problem/incident has to be detailed

Create a page to write why there is a dependency.

Hi,

We don't currently have any integrations with Confluence. We haven't seen a huge demand for this yet and are tracking this at: https://codebarrel.atlassian.net/browse/AUT-269

Though interest is building and we will monitor this.

Hi Nick, 

I can't vote for the above feature request. It would be awesome if a Confluence page (with a tech design template) could be created based on the opening of a specific story. 

Thanks, 

Judit

We are using Jira and Confluence together to track and manage blog creation and publishing for a website.

Right now we create Jira issues to track each article from Idea -> Author Assign -> Draft -> Review -> Publish.

We also use Confluence to manage the actual blog content from draft to review to publish on Wordpress.  Atlassian has a great article on blog creation management using Confluence and Jira for their own internal blogs, which is what inspired us.

Right now we have to manually create a Confluence page for each new Jira blog tracking issue, and manually create the link between page<->issue.  (do this with a /jira link embed in the confluence page)

I'm surprised there is "huge demand" for automation like this.

Or maybe our approach is not efficient to begin with, is there a better way I'm not seeing?

This feature would be really useful for our teams also, when we create a New Version in Jira it would be great to have automation that would create a confluence page under a defined tree structure (which we use for publishing release notes)

Hi @Andrew.Griffith 

This is easily possible with our app Automated release notes for Jira. The app is available for cloud as well as on-prem Jira.

PS - I am the product owner of this app.

Voting for an integration with Confluence here:) Would be awesome if you could create a Confluence page / from template from an A4J rule.

Agreed - we would love a Confluence page created when an issue is transitioned!!!

you can create a confluence page using "send web request"

a trick I found it that you cannot have carriage returns in "Your Text", for the storage method of creating text, the "representation" must be "storage"

{
"title": "what ever you want",
"type": "page",
"space": { "key": "Some existing confluence space" },
"status": "current",
"body": {"storage": {"value": "Your Text","representation": "storage"}}
}

Hi, Can you update your code to show how I can create a page with an existing template?

Like Matthias likes this

I don't know anything specifically, but I would fill in the desired template with dummy data, and look at the source format to get how to construct the page, and fill in the bits with the variables you want. just be careful about Carriage returns

don't do this

"text text text

text text"

do this

"text text text" &

"text text"

I don't have any coding knowledge so I was hoping if the code can be updated like this so I can get the template into the page that is being created

Also I wanted the title to be generated based on the Issue Number of the Issue based on which this page is being generated

 

{
"title": "what ever you want" + "Issue Number",
"type": "page",
"space": { "key": "Some existing confluence space" },
"status": "current",
"body": {"storage": {"value": "Your Text","representation": "storage"}}
"template": {"whatever template"}
}

Hello all,

One way to connect Jira Automation with Confluence is to use the plugin mailto.wiki - Send Emails to Confluence. Jira Automation can send emails as action and mailto.wiki can convert emails into Confluence pages/posts. This allows you to take advantage of Jira Automation and Confluence, e.g. weekly release status reports, automatically create notes for a certain issue types, etc...

If you are interested in this solution I have published a detailed blog post on this topic here:

Create Confluence Pages/Posts with Jira Automation

Cheers

how is voting possible? 

I agree with this feature request.

Hi ! We recently released Publish to confluence which allows you to create pages from issues or via post functions. We are not currently keeping sync between issues and pages (it's in the pipe), but maybe it will answer your needs.

Feel free to contact if you have questions !

Melanie GEFFRE, developer at Elements

Hi!

We have a Plugin just for that, it's named AutoPage and allows you to create and maintain Confluence-Pages from your Jira-Issues, keeping them in Sync. Pages are created from a Template-Page in Confluence and we do support Placeholders in this Page to reference all of your Issues' fields.

The Plugin is often used for textual Documentation (Sprint-Documentation, Retrospective-Documents, Featuere-Documentation-Pages) automatically from your Jira Issues.

 

Give it a try and let us know, if you miss anything.

Is the Plugin for the Cloud version?

Thanks,

Livia

Like Mahima Srivastav likes this

there does not appear to be a cloud version

No Cloud version :( 

no cloud version :(

Hello all,

You can look at our app Automated release notes for Jira

it is available for cloud as well as on-prem Jira. And it does more than the release notes.
