When adding the Issue Macro to a page, you can choose between 2 layouts

  • Full width: the macro has more information and can be expanded to see the description

This can be changed later, by clicking on the macro in the page editor.

Issue links to the current page.

After adding one or many "Issue Macros" to a page, this page will be linked to the inserted issues.

Create Issues

Issue Macro view

Compact and full width layout

Difference between compact and full width layout.

As seen in the macro configuration section, there are two layouts

  • Compact (MARKETING-8): the macro only shows icon, key, description and status. Furthermore it's displayed withing flowing text
  • Full width (MARKETING-7, MARKETING-1): the macro shows additional fields, such as assignee, reporter and due date. The macro is not displayed inline and there can't be text left or right on the same line.

Macros with full width layout can expand their body to show the description.

Macros with full width layout can be expanded to show the issue description.

With the "Form Macro" you can add an issue creation form to any page.
