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


This script allows Comala Workflows users to automatically create a Jira issue once a page was approved in a Confluence workflow.


Your team can collaborate on documents like feature descriptions, get them approved by management, and then get issues created for those features immediately.

Good to Know

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