Have you struggled with creating a useful Atlassian Confluence document that contains the related Github issues list? What if that list contains enough useful information about the required Github issues that you do not even need to visit Github for see more information?

Using Github links for Confluence you can use a Confluence macro that displays all necessary information about Github issues directly in Confluence.

Let me say that I want to show all Github issues from Microsoft's repository of Visual Code and the link there is https://github.com/microsoft/vscode/issues

But viewing top issues does not give me the required data granularity I need. I only care about API related issues that are marked with a label api, so I filter down the issues using the Confluence macro of Github links for Confluence. It looks like `labels=api`.

My team cares about the issues are in the debug state and marked with the debug label, so I updated the filter to `labels=api,debug`.

In our plan we work towards August release of the issues that market with the milestone of August 2022.

I go to the milestone and see that the id of the Github milestone is 192, so I amend the filter to `labels=api,debug&milestone=192`. And below, I can see only issues that my team should care, at the moment.

On top of this, I use the Github links for Confluence milestone macro to see directly in Confluence the progress on the Github milestone.

Github links for Confluence integrates Atlassian Confluence and Microsoft Github to help you and your team be more productive and transparent.
