General Info

Does the Issue Manager have any impact on the standard Jira macro by Atlassian?

No, both plugins work separately.

What happens after the installation of Issue Manager with the present issues in Confluence created with the Atlassian standard macro ?

Nothing, the Issue Manager doesn't affect Atlassian's Jira standard macro.

Is it possible to deactivate the Jira standard macro of Atlassian?

Basically yes, but the Issue Manager still has some technical dependencies on the Jira standard macro and won't work without it. Our goal is that Issue Manager will work completely autonomously, so the standard Jira macro of Atlassian can be deactivated.

Is an account needed in both systems Confluence & Jira?

Yes

Do I need to be logged in Confluence & Jira to create issues with the Issue Manager in Confluence?

Yes, as long as no SSO (Single Sign On) is configured.

Which field types are supported by the Issue Manager for direct editing?

The Issue Manager supports currently more than 50% of all Jira field types. Our goal is that the Issue Manager will support all standard field types in the near future.
