How to link from Confluence a live view of the Jira "Gantt-Chart"?

Exporting a static image is the only way to display the gantt chart inside of Confluence. Having a live view is greatly desired so Confluence can be the single high-level dashboard overview for the project. Is this possible? Thanks!

You can use my Gantt-Gadget as Confluence is able to properly display JIRA-Gadgets (see related native Atlassian docu for gadgets, too). Due to security aspects, you have to set up your systems properly: the internet protocol (http or https), domain name as well as port must be identical for Confluence and JIRA to avoid leaking the same-origin-policy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Same-origin_policy).

If you do not care, your browser will not allow to load necessary data from JIRA into Confluence as background task. You cannot deactivate this security feature within your browser as this is a global standard. Prior, Atlassian itself was using "jsonp" to overcome this, but in the meantime they have revoked usage to support secure systems.

Kind regards,

Where does one download your "Gantt-Gadget"? (I don't see it as an add-on in Confluence plugins).

My "Gantt-Gadget" is a JIRA-Gadget, which you can display within Confluence (see Atlassian docu for gadgets).

Disregard for the moment. I see the gadget in Jira. I will attempt to allow external gadgets in Confluence per https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Registering+External+Gadgets . Thanks

Take care about your set-up accessing Confluence and JIRA to avoid hitting the same-origin-policy. You can download my latest version from my server at http://www.polscheit.de/plugins/jira/gantt-chart/gantt-3.1.9-JIRA6_2015-03-04T13-11-05Z.jar and install that JAR-file via "upload" button on page "manage add-ons" as system administration. Kind regards, Frank
