As part of my current work, I have to do an analysis of JIRA defects which get put into our major releases. We need to identify that all of the defect checks have been completed as part of an audit and make comments.
Currently we tend to do this in Excel, with an export from JIRA, but of course, as soon as it is exported, it is out of date.
To overcome this, I have merged a JIRA filter with a table that is manipulated using the Table Transformer. The manual table has check boxes.
If the check boxes are selected, and then the Confluence page is edited, any check box selections are removed...going back to what is selected in the original table. Any comments that needed to be added to the table as part of our review required editing the confluence page (unless you know a better way of not having to edit the page?).
To try and get round this, we replaced the check boxes with handy Macros, as normally these can be changed on confluence without editing the page, but the table transformer makes these handy macros unchangable.
This changing of checkbox status undoes hours of auditing work, which is painful.
