Add JIRA Events

JIRA events enable you to visualise versions, issues or sprint dates from JIRA. To use this feature, you must have your Confluence and JIRA instances set up with a secure connection between them. See Licensing and Installing Team Calendars

Add JIRA events

When you create an event, there are multiple JIRA event types you can choose from. These are:

  • JIRA Issue Dates – Embed a single JIRA issue date or the duration between any two issue dates. For example, embed due dates for JIRA issues, or, if you have custom fields in JIRA, embed a scheduled deployment date.
    What if you want to see the duration for a particular issue? You may have fields like 'Deployment Start Date' and 'Deployment End Date' or 'Issue Start' and 'Issue End Date'. Team Calendars allows you to visualise the duration between any two dates.

On this page:

Related pages:

  • JIRA Agile Sprints – If your team is using JIRA Agile (formerly known as GreenHopper) to plan their work, you can also embed your Sprints inside your Team Calendar. This helps you see the duration of your sprint and how your team's availability or other team events could impact the sprint.
  • JIRA Project Releases – JIRA versions help you define a release for your projects. You can embed and visualise your JIRA project versions to see how your releases are progressing. Learn more about JIRA versions.  

Update JIRA events in Confluence Team Calendars 

From Team Calendars, you can:

  • Update JIRA project version dates
  • Update Issue dates 

Drag-and-drop the event or update its date, and it will automatically update in JIRA. Currently, you can't update your JIRA Agile sprint dates.

Add JIRA issue dates

You can embed virtually any issue date from JIRA inside Team Calendars. Embed JIRA issue dates as:

  • A single date 
  • A duration between two specified dates

When adding JIRA issue dates, you'll be presented with the following display options:

  • Project – A quick and easy way to map out project issues on a calendar
  • Saved filter – For more advanced filtering as well as support for multiple projects.
  • JQL – Power users can use JQL to create a JIRA calendar.

If you select Saved filter or JQL, Team Calendars will render all available date fields that are available for all projects selected in your filter. If there are dates that are only available to one project, and not another in the filter, they will not render in the list of possible fields to show.

Upon selecting a Project, Saved Filter or JQL, you'll be presented with all possible dates that can be rendered in Team Calendars. For those of you with JIRA Agile, Team Calendars can also embed your JIRA Agile sprint durations right on your JIRA Calendars.

Once the calendar is created, depending on what you've selected, you can see:

  • Issue dates
  • JIRA project version due dates
  • JIRA Agile Sprint Durations 

Examples:

Issue dates

Project release

Agile sprint

Notes

  • You can't add content to JIRA calendars as they source all of their date information from the JIRA system. To add issues and version deadlines, add them in the JIRA interface.
  • You can drag-and-drop your JIRA issue dates and project versions to re-schedule them right from Team Calendars.
  • When you create a JIRA calendar, all users in your system can see the calendar name in Confluence. The actual calendar events (issues, versions, sprints), however, automatically respect your JIRA permissions, so it's possible for users to be subscribed to a JIRA calendar and not see all events.

    Hi, there is a possibility to specify a period in People calendar (When/To). Could you please consider such possibility for JIRA calendar too? I have in mind the possibility to specify two date/time fields for When/To correspondingly.

    HI,

    I have a project in JIRA set with Security Levels. My question is how this affects the issues that are visible in a JIRA Calendar for a user.

    How Team Calendar figures out what issues from a project in JIRA with security level a confluence user can see?

    Thank you.

      Team Calendars respects the JIRA security permissions. So if the user doesn't have access to those JIRA issues, they will see a blank calendar.

    I can see how you can subscribe to a team calendar using outlook. Thanks.

    Question is, how can I subscribe to a JIRA calendar using outlook? We are looking at using this for change management (calendar) and so it would be great for all involved to be able to see changes in their outlook client without having to log into Confluence each time, or export ical manually, on a schedule. Thanks again.

    Hi, My first time here.

    New to using Team Calendar.

    Quick question - what's the way to show interim milestones along the way of a Version?

    For instance, our version/release x.y is going LIVE on 24th May.

    There's various milestones along the way, like - locked for changes, testing complete, code lock down etc. These are generally fixed # of days before the 'release date' (or version due date) i.e. always 11, 7 & 4 days before the release date.

    I've been trying to show all of these interim milestones on the calendar.

    HOW?

      I am also new to Team Calendar, so I claim no expertise.

      I have not found an automated way to do this (like setting up once for all versions) and would love to know if there is such a solution, but you could certainly set up a JIRA issue (I use "task" type) in your project, give the issue a specific due date,  and assigned the issue to the version.  Then these events will display on your calendar (assuming your calendar is showing 'Issue Due Date').

      There are a couple downsides that I can think of:

      1. you have to define each milestone in every version every time you want to use it.  It would be nice to be able to define a set of milestones that apply to each version, with relative dates to the release date as you describe above.  that seems more like a JIRA enhancement than a calendar enhancement (maybe the enhancement request already exists, i haven't looked).
      2. If you version release date changes, your milestones won't move with it.

        Sherif Mansour [Atlassian]

        Dale - what are you after - all versions for all projects? If you use JIRA versions as a release (Which is what they are intended for) you should be able to create a JIRA calendar, pick a project and choose "Version due dates". They will automatically display on the calendar. 

        With regards to your "milestones" what do you use in JIRA to represent that today? Anything? 

        The other option is to keep using JIRA for interm versions as well.

          Hi Sherif,

          We use version due dates for our releases as you describe in your first paragraph above.  That is working fine in JIRA and Team Calendars.

          For our purposes, Milestones probably isn't the right term to use, but we have a handful of tasks that are repetitive with each release.  The task due dates are relative to the version release date (there might be some variation with each release, but that can be ignored).  

          • Deploy to QA (-6w)
          • QA Signoff (-2w)
          • publish release notes (-1w)
          • etc...

          I can do this currently by creating these tasks in JIRA manually for each release.  For those tasks that are created with a due date, those dates are displayed in Team Calendars, so there's no problem there.  We often get lazy and don't re-create the issue for each version.

          What I would like is probably a JIRA enhancement, and that would be a way to define a set of tasks that i could assign (or copy and create new individual issues) to any version I choose, whose due date would be relative to the version release date.

          Thanks,

          Dale

            Sherif Mansour [Atlassian]

            Thanks for clarifying, Dale. I think in JIRA you can copy these tasks for each release using some of the things outlined here:  JRA-1558 - Deep copy an issue to the same project or a single project Open . However, your problem of ensuring the dependancy between task dates persist (if one task slips etc..) is not something that is on JIRA's backlog (or Team Calendars). Maybe asking the question on answers.atlassian.com might be the way to go to see how others are doing this.

    Thanks Dale. I did that too but ditched it - not sustainable.

    In fact, I have since ditched the Team Calendar altogether since it did not deliver on the #1 expectation I had from it (sad)

      Thanks for the feedback, Nitin. It would be great to hear some more detail about this.. would you have time for a chat? (sherif at atlassian dot com)

      Those interm milestones, the challenge is JIRA has no concept to do this. So the possible solutions could be:

      1. Use JIRA versions (create more JIRA versions to represent milestones) 
      2. Use JIRA issue dates (create an issue type called "milestone" and give it a due date, then in Team Calendars visualise that)
      3. Use a generic Confluence event calendar and create generic events

      The down sides of all of them is you don't have this "dependency" mapping that you want, so if you move one date, all the dates move. This is really getting into the MS project Gantt-style releases which we currently don't have plans on doing. 

      Sounds like you've considered some of these options.. maybe there is something else I'm missing from what you are trying to do.

        Hi Sherif, happy to chat.

        What you stated towards the end is precisely what I am looking for - relative dates - like, given fixversion 'phase 1' is due on 16th July, regression completion is on 12th July (minus 2 business days), code freeze is on 5th July (minus 5 business days).

        As an extension - I would want only 'incomplete' milestones to shift i.e. if we decide to postpone due date to 17th July today, code freeze stays at 5th July (basically historic dates do not change).

         

        Keen to hear more about this generic confluence calendar. Is it something you see working for us? Even if it works similar to Team Calendar's limited functionality, at least we aren't paying extra then.

        Team Calendar sounded like a lot of money to spend given it did not achieve what we wanted it to above all. Dont deny that it may be great as-is for a LOT out there - not us.

    Sorry I think I mis-communicated what I meant by "generic Confluence calendar" - I meant just use a generic "Event Calendar" in Team Calendars to do this. It's still part of Team Calendars. Thanks for clarifying your situation, it doesn't sound like this is the right tool for you, sounds far more Microsoft-project like than we plan on taking with Team Calendars. The third-party Structure plugin (for JIRA) may help you, but I'm not sure about it's ability to set tasks as dependant to each other - might be worth checking out.

    Atlassian, we are pleased with Team Calendars, the Agile sprint events provide project level entries, not team level ones. Therefore a project which has three scrum teams, can not create separate team calendars where only their sprint is visible. There should be a filter behind the Sprint event type, where we could use a regexp or so to filter for a sprint name.

    In the current state this is rather Project Calendars than Team Calendars isn't it?

      Sherif Mansour [Atlassian]

      Laszlo, would love some more context for this - trying to understand what you're after. If a project has multiple sprints, you just want to filter out a specific one? How do we know if a sprint belongs to one of your teams? Are you using some sort of naming convention? 

      In the current state - yes we're assuming the majority use case is that most teams=a project, which I know isn't 100% the case, but until JIRA (and all our products) have a solid concept of teams it's our best start.

    Yes we are using naming convention to separate the teams' sprints. A regex filter possibility or other string filter (contains()) for the sprint name would be quite good.

    Hi there,

    Brand new to Confluence - just inherited the admin role for my company.  The old admin (who left suddenly) has a few calendars set up with JIRA issues displaying for certain projects.  I can't figure out for the life of me how to add more JIRA issues!  I go to add an event, select JIRA issue date, give it a name, select the server, and click ok, and nothing happens.  The popup remains open and nothing is added to the calendar.  Am I just missing something super obvious?

      Sherif Mansour [Atlassian]

      Hi James,

      The JIRA events are actually a filter (or a stream) of JIRA issues (read from JIRA).. think of it as a subscription to a JIRA search. So the way more issues are added is by creating the issues in JIRA, and then in Team Calendars you can refresh/reload the calendar and the updates should come through.

      The way to display the issue in the calendar is by selecting what you want to display. For example, if you pick issue due date it will only display issues which have a due date etc...

        Thanks for the quick response, Sherif!

        I do understand that the calendar simply displays existing JIRA issues according to certain rules.  What I can't seem to figure out is how to add a new "subscription" to show a different stream (for example showing the JIRA tickets for a recently added project).

    When I use JQL and a start/end date range to display issues on a calendar, it is not updating when I change something in JIRA.

    I have a calendar that anyone can add using "status not in (Fixed, Closed) AND assignee = currentUser()" as the JQL query.  The display is set to use start and finish dates (which we pull from MS Project).  If I change the assignee or change the dates, nothing happens on the Team Calendar.  If I add a new JIRA issues event using the above settings, the correct information is shown.

    Any ideas as to why?  Is there some time period that the syncing occurs or should it be on refresh of the calendar?

      Ok, so I figured out that you have to use the calendar menu to refresh.  That seems crazy. Why doesn't page refresh also refresh the calendar?

      The reason:  if I make changes to someone else's issues (I do often as the JIRA administrator) they will not know to refresh the calendar.  

      Is there some setting somewhere that can fix this??  Users will not take kindly to having to click that constantly.

        This is in the "you gotta be kidding me" category.  The sync time is set to 1 hour intervals and does not appear to be configurable.

          Ah, yes...embedded calendars are edited in a different way. 

          1. Open the Confluence page where the calendar is embedded.
          2. Click Edit.
          3. Click on the embedded calendar and then select "Edit" (this option should appear under the calendar on the left).
          4. The Edit dialog opens with the cursor in the Calendar field.
          5. To add a calendar, start typing the name.
          6. To delete a calendar, click the "x" next to the calendar name.
          7. Click Save.

          (Some of these steps may be obvious but I like to make them as complete as possible for others that may be very new to JIRA/Confluence.)

            Thanks for the help, Moriah.

            Unfortunately, I still can't seem to accomplish what I'm after. When I'm editing my embedded calendar, it only has one calendar in the 'Calendar' field. In my case, it it 'Feature Development'. As you can see in my screenshot, within the 'Feature Development' calendar is an Event (blue) and a JIRA Agile Sprints item (green) which reads "Consultation Request...".

            My goal is to remove the JIRA Agile Sprints item (shown in green and titled "Consultation Request...") from the calendar.

                  Even if you created the calendar on a page, if you click the Calendars top navigation link you should be able to see the "original" calendar with the delete option.  If you don't see it (I did a test and automatically it appeared), you can click Add Calendar>Add Existing and search for it.

                  IMO, not having the same options for an embedded calendar and one on the main page is a bug.

    This page URL would display in the "Related page" field of the event.

    Currently, this is a three step process:
    1. create the event
    2. create the page
    3. link the page to the event

    Ideally, this should be a one step process.

    When I create a JIRA Issue Dates event I get the following error: "No projects found. Please create a project first."  I Have my JIRA server and Confluence server linked and I have also tried re indexing the JIRA server.  Any idea what is causing this issue?

      I found my issue, I had to adjust my timeout settings in the application links between JIRA and Confluence.

    Is there a way to add additional JIRA fields (such as the reporter) to the calendar entry?

      Hi Paul, It's not currently possible, but we do have an open feature request you can watch along those lines.

    I know that you can use multiple custom dates to pull in events using a JIRA filter. My only problem is that, when using multiple dates for an event type, those different date types aren’t show on the calendar.

    As context, I’m using team calendars for a marketing team. I have a JIRA ticket for, say, a webinar. The webinar (let’s say it’s a jira ticket called ‘Webinar’) has multiple custom dates in JIRA (publish, reminder, follow-up) as well as due date. If I select all 4 date types when adding it to the calendar, I just get 4 generic events called ‘MKTG-XX Webinar’ that show up on the calendar at their respective dates. I want each date type to show up, for example: ‘MKTG-XX Webinar (follow up date)’. Currently, this only happens if you select a single date type when creating the event.

    Is this possible? To me, this is a no-brainer functionality. What is the point of being able to pull in multiple date types into a single calendar JIRA filter entry if you can’t distinguish each?

    Thanks for the help. I could do a workaround and add another event type for each date type but that seems inefficient.

    I need the ability to add a date/time to a JIRA issues and have it sync to Team Calendars.  Can this be done?

      Hi Chris,

      There are various dates you can pull into Team Calendars from JIRA – like Issue Due Date and Issue Created Date – and you also have the option of Adding a Custom Field in JIRA.

      That page seems to suggest you can add a date and time picker, so I think that's your best bet.

        I need to being in the TIME also..  So..  I guess a custom field might work.  But it needs to sync to our phones and show the time on our phones..  We sync Confluence Team Calendars to our phone's calendar.

    Hello,

    I'm new to team calendar. We are trying to use the plugin(Team calendars 5.2.10) in Confluence 5.5.6 to display JIRA 4.4.5 issues. 

    Currently we are testing Team calendar trial version. I'm creating Event Type: JIRA Issue Dates in Team calendar, It just displays option 'Project', it is not displaying options to add JQL and Saved filter.  

    Please suggest.

    Thanks!

        Giles,

        Thank you. My problem (described above) is due to old JIRA version. We tested with JIRA 6.2.2, issue is resolved

    Hi -

    I am having trouble viewing future/unplanned sprints on the Confluence Calendar add on.   I have added the JIRA Agile Sprint event to the calendar but it only displays previous or current sprints.  I have planned out all of the sprints for the release and would like to have them all displayed on the calendar.  Is this possible with current functionality?

    Thanks,
    Anthony

      Hi Anthony,

      Team Calendars should display any sprints you have scheduled in JIRA, provided you've:

      • Set up the link between Confluence and JIRA
      • Added the JIRA Agile Sprint event type for the appropriate JIRA project
      • Set the sprint start and end date in JIRA

      If you're still having issues with this, I'd say it's a good idea to contact support.

        Thanks for your reply Giles.

        I am unable to set the sprint start and end date for a future sprint.  We have completed sprint 1 (the calendar shows this grayed out).  We are currently in the middle of sprint 2 (this is displayed on Calendar).  Sprint 3 will start in the middle of May but there is no way to enter the start/end dates for that sprint until I close out sprint 2, therefore it is not displayed on the Calendar.   Ultimately, I would like to see future sprints on the calendar too.   In your bullets above, I've completed the first two, the only thing I can't do is set the start/end dates for a future sprint.  I have screenshots to show but I am unable to upload to this.


        Thanks for your help.

          Hi Anthony,

          I've spoken to one of my colleagues in JIRA Agile, and he said, as you've stated, that you can't set a start date for a future sprint. When you start the sprint, it sets the start date.

          He gave me this page in the Agile docs as a reference: Editing or Reordering a Sprint.

          Hope this helps.
