Create a Jira issue when a page or blog post is approved - Comala Document Management integration


This script allows Comala Document Management users to automatically create a Jira issue once a page is approved in a Confluence workflow.


Your team works collaboratively to produce a Confluence page that details feature descriptions for proposed new functionality. When the Confluence page is finished, you request approval from management.

When an identified approver clicks the Approve button, this script creates a Jira issue linked to the Confluence page.

Good to Know

  • The integration requires both Comala Document Management and Scriptrunner to be installed on the same Confluence instance. You must also clearly identify the "final" states of your Workflow in the script for it to work correctly.
  • This is a Custom Event Listener that listens for an ApprovalApprovedEvent.

Additional Information

We have a blog post that shows you how to use ScriptRunner's integration with Comala Document Management to automatically create a Jira issue when a Confluence page is approved.
