The template is a simple Confluence page and you can use the full power of the Confluence page editor. The magic comes with the placeholder Macros for AutoPage. The template can be understood as a blueprint and you define where AutoPage should insert content of a Jira issue.
So let's start - Create a page
You can use whatever space and name you want for your template. It's a good idea to think about where to create your templates and how to name them. It's easier to find templates while configuring AutoPage rules and to make clear what's the usage of a page for users, if you have a naming and storage convention.
If a template should only be used in the context of a specific space, then create the template in this exact space. Should the template be used in different spaces, you better choose a more general space.
We recommend to use a name prefix as "AutoPage Template" followed by the type of documentation (e.g. EPIC Documenation or Project Summary).
Style your Page - Add macros to place Jira issue content
You can edit your template page as every other Confluence page. The only difference is that you can define how and what Jira issue content should be inserted with our great AutoPage-Macros.
To insert a macro just type / followed by Autopage or use the +-Icon in the editor menu:
There are two types of Macros to insert content, while creating a page from a template.
