Build the Atlassian product versions page - 8.x

Overview

This page explains how the Atlassian product versions page was created. It is an example of how to extract data from other applications that provide JSON data to show current information in Confluence. In this case, the data is publicly available from Atlassian Marketplace.

JSON Table settings > Data settings > Output formatwiki
JSON Table settings > Data format > Augments to data row values[%version%| https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/JIRA+%version%+Release+Notes]
