Publish eazyBI reports on Confluence Pages

You can publish eazyBI reports on both Confluence Cloud and Confluence Server pages using eazyBI macros. This is an easy way how to share eazyBI reports with other users in your company and manage who can view the reports.

Notice that eazyBI dashboards and reports will be visible according to eazyBI Account users access rights. Even if the Confluence page is shared with everyone, a user will get an error message if none of their user groups have access to eazyBI.

In your confluence page start typing {eazybi.. and select eazyBI macro either eazyBI for Jira dashboard or eazyBI for Jira report

If you don't find macros available please follow this documentation page on how to set up eazyBI for Confluence page on Cloud, Server and Datacenter

When selecting your report or dashboard, make sure you save all configurations. The end user will see it just as you do in the preview. The height will be configured automatically, make sure you configure width according to your preferences. For example, auto will stretch it to all available space.

If you wish to embed a report in the Confluence page with the custom page selection [2], you need to save [1] the selection in the report preview form.

eazyBI for Confluence Cloud

You may publish eazyBI reports on Confluence Cloud pages using eazyBI macros in Confluence. Note those macros are part of another app eazyBI for Confluence.

To publish eazyBI reports on Confluence page, make sure you have eazyBI for Jira Cloud in the same site where Confluence Cloud. If so, you are set to use eazyBI macros in Confluence pages, eazyBI for Jira dashboard and eazyBI for Jira reports.

If your Jira Cloud and Confluence Cloud are not on the same site, then please contact eazyBI Support for assistance.

eazyBI for Confluence Server and Datacenter

You may publish eazyBI reports on Confluence Server pages using eazyBI macros or Jira external gadgets. Note eazyBI macros are part of another app eazyBI for Confluence.

We recommend using eazyBI macros in Confluence pages instead of eazyBI Jira external gadgets. 

Setting up macros

Make sure you have installed app eazyBI for Confluence on your Confluence server and you have an application link from Confluence to Jira. (Confluence: Settings → General Configuration → Application links).

When the application link is in place, you are set to use eazyBI macros in Confluence pages, eazyBI for Jira dashboard and eazyBI for Jira reports.

Setting up Jira external gadgets

If you would like to publish Jira external gadgets on Confluence pages, then make sure that your Jira and Confluence configuration is set up. Starting from Confluence 7.11 select "Allow incoming" for Jira in the allowlist.

For reference see Confluence documentation on

When you have created an application link in your confluence administration page, under Edit option make sure the outgoing and incoming configuration says Configured as visible below. If the status is "Not configured", then try entering other details and clicking Enable. For example, if not configured automatically, Certificate timeout (ms) should be 10000.

By default, data requests from gadgets in Confluence pages will time out after 5 seconds. If you have longer running eazyBI reports then please specify -Datlassian.http.connection.timeout=TIMEOUT_IN_MILLISECONDS Java property in Confluence startup scripts. E.g. in bin/ add CATALINA_OPTS

CATALINA_OPTS="-Datlassian.http.connection.timeout=60000 ${CATALINA_OPTS}"

to increase gadget data request timeout to 60 seconds.

If you have specified URL patterns for "Outgoing Authentication" then you should add the following lines to your existing URL patterns:


OAuth authentication for application links is supported starting from eazyBI version 4.6.0

After configuring the application link, go to External Gadgets management in Confluence administration page and add JIRA_HOME URL to Gadget feeds. 

"Gadget feed" is constructed automatically by providing JIRA_HOME URL

Note that the gadget feed might not start working immediately. The restart of the Confluence might be needed for the gadget feed to start.
