Use gadgets to add dynamic content

Gadgets allow you to add dynamic content to a Confluence page or Jira application dashboard. Confluence supports gadgets provided by Jira. 

Add a gadget to a page

  1. Edit the page.

  2. Click Insert > Other Macros

  3. Pick the gadget you want to add and use the preview area to configure it. 

  4. Click Insert

Atlassian gadgets are supported, but 3rd party gadgets aren't.

As of May 14, 2020, the Confluence quicknav and page gadgets were removed from the insert menu and slash command. Any existing instances of these gadgets will still work.

Learn more about this change by visiting our Community post: Confluence Cloud gadgets are being deprecated.

Jira gadgets

For displaying basic Jira information, such as issues and charts, we recommend using the Jira Issues Macro and Jira Chart Macro as these macros have better performance and are easier to configure than gadgets. 

If the Jira information you want to display isn't available from either of these macros, a gadget will likely do the trick.

As of September 26, 2022, Confluence will no longer support Jira gadgets in Confluence.

Any existing instances of these gadgets will continue to work and be available to add to a Confluence page from the insert menu and using the slash command.
