    As our Jira installation is in "private" mode, only authenticated user are allowed to access the tickets. The Jira Macro then fails with an HTTP 400 error, as returned by the Jira server (note: the Jira server is sending a message associated with the error 400 that is not displayed in the Jira Macro stack trace:

    Caused by: java.io.IOException: Server returned HTTP response code: 400 for URL: https://tracker.example.com/sr/jira.issueviews:searchrequest-xml/temp/SearchRequest.xml?jqlQuery=issueKey+in+%28MIG-1%2CMIG-2%29

    Knowing that both XWiki and Jira are using LDAP for authentication, users that have an account on XWiki also have an account in Jira with the same login, is this possible to

    • initiate the XWiki to Jira server connection using a configurable bot-user
    • send the connected user login to Jira in order to let Jira provide the information accessible to that user

    I added a class to actually use custom fields, if anyone is interested. It will work if your custom field ID's start with "customfield_" as in

    I created a new class called CustomfieldJIRAFieldDispalyer.java containing:

    public class CustomfieldJIRAFieldDisplayer implements JIRAFieldDisplayer
       public List<Block> displayField(String fieldName, Element issue)
            List<Block> result = Collections.emptyList();

    List<Element> children  = issue.getChild("customfields").getChildren("customfield");

    for (Element child: children){
    String id = child.getAttributeValue("id");

    if (fieldName.equals(id)){
    List<Element> moreKids = child.getChild("customfieldvalues").getChildren("customfieldvalue");
    String val = "";
    for (Element kid : moreKids){
    if (!val.equals("")){
    val += " ,";
    val += kid.getText() + "";
    if (!val.equals("")){
         result = Arrays.<Block>asList(new VerbatimBlock(val, true));
    } else {
    result = Collections.emptyList();
    return result;

    I modified the TableJiraDisplayer.java - (checking for the "customfield" field parameter)

            // Construct the data rows, one row per issue
            for (Element issue : issues) {
                List<Block> dataCellBlocks = new ArrayList<Block>();
                for (String field : getFields(parameters)) {
                    // Use the displayer for the field
    if (field.startsWith("customfield")){
    dataCellBlocks.add(new TableCellBlock(getFieldDisplayer("customfield").displayField(field, issue)));
                    dataCellBlocks.add(new TableCellBlock(getFieldDisplayer(field).displayField(field, issue)));

                rowBlocks.add(new TableRowBlock(dataCellBlocks));

    I added this to the components.txt in the package's resources:


    and then replaced the xwiki rendering jira jar after building. I can now use it like

    {{jira url="http://devmgmt:8080" style="table" source="jql" fields="type, key, status, summary, created, customfield_10412" fieldNames="'Issue type', 'Issue Id', 'Status', 'Summary', 'Created',   'Heat Ticket" }}
