Create a Confluence page with a Jira version in Cloud using Command Line Interface (CLI)

This article explains how to create a Confluence page and add a Jira version simultaneously, when both the apps are available on Cloud, using Command Line Interface (CLI).


You can add a page in Confluence and the version of the Jira project simultaneously with Atlassian Command Line Interface v8.6.

  1. Make sure that the file in the CLI client folder is filled with server details of both Jira and Confluence applications. Refer to the CLI Client Installation and Use for the installation guide.
  2. Comment out the default application in the file as the actions are performed in Jira and Confluence simultaneously. Here is a sample properties file for your reference:
  3. Create a text file (for example, cmd1.txt), and, add the actions addVersion and addPage to add a version in Jira and create a page in Confluence. Here is an example: 

     --action addVersion  --project "CREAT"  --name "V2"
     --action addPage --space "tabletest"  --title "This is title 0"  --content "This is a test page” --parent "Home"
  4. To execute the file from the terminal, use the following action:

    myjira myconfluence --action run --file "cmd1.txt"

    Note that myjira and myconfluence are the names for the Jira and Confluence instances used for this example. You must change these names as per your requirement in your environment.

  • It is necessary to have both the Jira and Confluence Command Line Interface (CLI) apps in your respective cloud instances. 
  • It is recommended to test this scenario in a non-production environment, or, run the action with the --simulate parameter to verify the behavior before deploying.
