Creating Live Reports in Confluence

Applies to Zephyr Scale Server/Data Center 9.1, last modified on September 20, 2023

Use macros to expand the capabilities of your Confluence pages by adding extra functionality and dynamic content. Zephyr Scale Reporting for Confluence gives you real-time insights into your test management initiative with up to 60 out-of-the box testing macros. It’s a free app for Confluence, but it requires Zephyr Scale to pull data and render the reports/charts.

These macros give you the ability to create insightful testing reports to track coverage, progress, and quality across Jira projects, epics, and user stories. Then you can share the information with your colleagues for easier data analysis and collaboration.

This topic walks you through the following tasks:

Note: Zephyr Scale Reporting for Confluence must be installed for Confluence, and Zephyr Scale 4.5 or newer must be installed for Jira. This functionality is only available for Jira and Confluence Server at this time.
