So, in the sprint item's Description, is there a way to enclose portions with some tags, like this:

$region 1.0 Name of Chapter 1

(Description goes here.)


And then later be able to build a documentation dynamically from all the tags from different Sprint items?

    From the comments, it's clear that the OP wants a tool recommendation, which is explicitly off-topic here on PMSE. With editing, help might be found on Software Recommendations Stack Exchange. – Todd A. Jacobs Jan 14 '17 at 16:21
  • You can create a custom FreeTextField and have the information you need, which could fit your needs. However, as CG mentions, I believe this question is a better fit in another community - I expanded my thoughts on this HERE on meta. – Tiago Cardoso Mar 15 '17 at 8:56

I don't believe you can, no. However, you might be able to get something similar by adding a custom (text) field, and putting it into that instead of into the Description.

  • Is there any plug in that might do this? Can't seem to find any in the JIRA portal. Though I am not sure I was searching with the right keywords. Seems like a common problem a lot would be facing, isn't it? – praveen_r Nov 12 '16 at 23:19

Delimiters, APIs, and Project Sponsors

If you use good delimiters, you could use the JIRA API to parse issues returned in JSON format, but the engineering-level details of how to do so are beyond the scope of a site about Project Management.

From a project management perspective, spinning up a project to have your software engineers write such a plugin might be something your company wants to spend resources on, or it may not. If your process genuinely needs such a tool, and nothing is available in the Atlassian Marketplace that suits your needs, then finding a project sponsor for an internal initiative may be a reasonable next step for you after you exhaust your research efforts on what's already out there in the ecosystem.

  • Hi, yes, that's what I am trying to figure out - is there something like that in the Marketplace already - but unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a forum even within Atlassian where I can reliably get an answer to this. I searched already and didn't find any, but want to ensure I don't reinvent the wheel. – praveen_r Nov 14 '16 at 12:21
