Greetings, Fellow Atlassian Enthusiasts! I think I have something that provided a lot of value to us, and I’d like to share it with the community so that other people can create documentation from inside of Jira a Snap.

Over the past year, I got into Groovy scripting with Jira Misc Workflow Extensions (JMWE). This app has genuinely cranked our Jira workflow automation to the max. I keep finding more and more use cases for it in our company.

I am most proud of this particular use case of JMWE:

We are giving our users the ability to build Confluence pages for customer issues automatically, right from Jira.

It is often hard to get users to leave Jira to create a Confluence page on an issue. To simplify the process and ensure accuracy, we wanted to add a button right in Jira that would give users a way to automatically generate a new Confluence page with all necessary issue data, and of course, link it back to that issue itself.

Here, I share the execution steps and the Groovy script we use. While the code might seem a bit complicated, I hope that people with some understanding of programming can make use of it.
