Confluence 5.4 shipped with the ability to highlight text in a table and bulk-create JIRA issues. This only supports the "Summary" field in JIRA.
We've been thinking about improving this feature to allow you to map other columns form your tables in Confluence into JIRA. The difficulty here is in the complexity this exposes and becomes even more tedious when it comes to custom fields an required fields.
So we'd love to hear form you. Are you interested in this feature? If so...
- What types of documents do you want to do this in? (Requirements, testing....)
- Do you want all the fields or is it the same ones over and over again? E.g. is "Description" the majority of what you are after?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
