In creating timelines in a Confluence page using either Plugin Development or Marketing Timeline macros, there doesn't seem to be an option to read in dates or swimlane data from JIRA. Many people in our company would really like to have a way to read in a list of dates/milestones (i.e. a small spreadsheet) to a timeline diagram such as this.
Perhaps it could work like this -
- certain metadata on JIRA issues could trigger an item to appear in a Gliffy timeline and change its appearance, similar to how a small table of dates/milestones will be used to generate a gantt chart in Excel
- see below for the type of view I am looking to accommodate
