In earlier versions, the JIRA issue macro had a pagination feature. This feature was removed due to observed low feature usage, in addition with our strategic focus to simplify the Confluence user interface and to keep and complex JIRA operations in JIRA. My apologies for the may customers that were quickly impacted by this, we could have done a better job in communicating this and ensuring we had understood your needs with regards to this matter.
Since then we've received a lot of feedback to bring back pagination. Thank you for those of you who provided helpful comments below, and for those customers we have been able to speak to about this. With this in mind, we have concluded the following:
- It is very clear that the current issue limit we have is insufficient and does not meet most of your needs.
- It is important for you to be able to see all the issues requested
- We still believe that the use case of navigating 100+ issues within inside Confluence is something that is extremely low and is something which should be done in JIRA.
- Some of you mentioned of the importance of seeing this also in PDF exports when you share the release notes or pages with customers.
With that in mind, what will we be doing to address this?
1. We will look at increasing the limit of the total number of visible issues
2. In addition, we will look at providing a parameter to configure this.
Note: You will always be limited by the total amount of issues JIRA provides, but this setting can be changed.
3. We will be looking at also implementing
CONF-30114 (sorting) to assist with dealing with larger issue lists in Confluence.
Thank you all for your patience in this matter, we will update this issue as we make progress.
