We would like to display the details of a single JIRA issue (id, title, state, ) including custom fields on a Confluence page.

We found the jira-issues macro, which generates a list of issues, but this is not what we want.

Furthermore there's the 'insert JIRA-issue' macro, which just renders a link to JIRA, but no details of that issue.

Is there any way to achieve this ?

In previous versions we used the 'Jira/Confluence Issue Macro', but it's not compatible with Confluence 4.0 and development seems to be halted on that.

      Finally we wrote our own macros for that purpose, which took about two days for a Confluence/JIRA novice.

        Hi Nikolaus,

        if you are familiar with XSL-T you could request Issue details via RSS at the JIRA instance and render the result with XSL-T into Html. I tried that successfully some time. Additionally you could use the cache-Makro to avoid XSL-T rendering on every single page hit.

        It gets a little more complicated if your Issue is not in a public JIRA project. Then you could create an own user macro which automatically appends username and password to the Url (os_username, os_password). So only the Confluence administrator has access to these values.

        Regards,
        Niels

          If you are running Confluence 4.1 you can find the Issue using JQL in JIRA and copy and paste the permalink to the search into the Confluence editor. See: http://screencast.com/t/AJAM72iiTBow
