Hi @Andrei Kuntsevich ,

Due to technical limitations on the Atlassian side, the {task} macro is not available in Jira Cloud.

More specifically, Atlassian doesn't allow 3rd-party apps to create any custom macros or extend the editor in any way. As such, it's not possible to create the same functionality as Jira Server / Data Center has.

Unfortunately, the documentation for Simple Tasklists is outdated, and doesn't accurate describe that. 

I hope that helps.
