I need to get data from specific confluence page and assign it to jira scripted field (scriptrunner) Edited

I need to get data from specific confluence page (i have the url/page id) and assign to a jira scripted field using groovy/scriptrunner.


I know how to assign data to a scripted field - the problem is getting the data out of Confluence.....


This should be basic stuff, but inspite of using an entire day looking for info on how to do this, no luck at all.


Tons of info on creating confluence pages based on jira data, but NO information on how to get data the other way.


Frustration level = "eminent explosion"!

You could

1. Call a Confluence REST API function from your code. You can find examples on how to call a REST function from groovy code here:


or here


2. If you have Scriptrunner in Jira and Confluence you could use remote control functionality from Scriptrunner. You can find more information here:


Hello Alexey

Thanks for reply, but I'm still not any wiser.

I need to see an example where somebody actually calls the confluence REST api from within a scriptrunner/groovy function, and GET's confluence data, e.g. macro-content into a jira multiline text variable.

I don't assume that this can actually be done, as there are NO examlples anywhere.

Thanks for the effort anyways....
