Find JIRA issues mentioned in Confluence Page

I have been walking through a lot of pages in internet but have not found any answer except one. However, the answer is not complete, so I will share my experience here.

This feature is very useful, especially to summarize the issues found during certain tests, where the tests are reported in a confluence page. I found that there are so many questions about this, but Atlassian seems does not want to bother with this request. I found one way to do this by the following tricks

Take one JIRA issue that related to the target confluence page (in this case, say it is GET-895) Find the global ID of a JIRA issue:

http://bach.dc1.scram.com:8080/rest/api/latest/issue/GET-895/remotelink

It will show the JSON like this:

[{"id":28293,"self":"http://bach.dc1.scram.com:8080/rest/api/latest/issue/GET-895/remotelink/28293","globalId":"appId=662e1ccf-94da-3121-96ae-053d90587b29&pageId=105485659","application":{"type":"com.atlassian.confluence","name":"Confluence"},"relationship":"mentioned in","object":{"url":"http://bach.dc1.scram.com:8090/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=105485659","title":"Page","icon":{},"status":{"icon":{}}}}]

Then take the globalId from there to search issue in JIRA

issue in issuesWithRemoteLinksByGlobalId("appId=662e1ccf-94da-3121-96ae-053d90587b29&pageId=105485659")

However, this morning I found out that the filter only works for a single user. So for example I report GET-001 and Denis report GET-002, the filter will show only JIRA tickets from me. In order to include Denis's report, we have to take one JIRA ticket from Denis, find the globalID and add the query into JQL. For example, the above query will be:

issue in issuesWithRemoteLinksByGlobalId("appId=662e1ccf-94da-3121-96ae-053d90587b29&pageId=105492363") or issue in issuesWithRemoteLinksByGlobalId("appId=662e1ccf-94da-3121-96ae-053d90587b29&pageId=105492386")

IF Condition in Wolfram Mathematica

The syntax is as follows

xxxxxxxxxxIf[condition, what to do if true, what to do if false]

Some examples

Example 1. Simple command

xx = -3;If[x<0, -x, x]3

Example 2. If condition in a function

abs[x_]:=If[x<0, -x, x]abs/@{-3, 2, 0, -2}{3, 2, 0, 2}

For in Wolfram Mathematica

The syntax is as follows

For[start, test, inc, what to do]

Some examples

Example 1. Simple Loop

xxxxxxxxxxFor[i=0, i<4, i++, Print[i]]0123

Example 2. Another simple loop

For[i=10, i>0, i--, Print[i]]10987654321

Example 3. Print list

a={10, 3, 9, 2}For[i=1,i<5,i++,Print[a[[i]]]]10392

How to Easily Generate Big File

I had difficulty in finding any large text file. In Google, some of them suggest to download from wikimedia dump and some of them from gutenberg project. However, the following steps are a lot easier than going to all the menus in either wikimedia or gutenberg.

Enter any small text file

In the first step, just enter any small text file. For example:

$echo 'arwan ahmad khoiruddin' > mytext.txt Merge the text into big file Next, you can merge the text into big file. Here's how $ cat mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt > merged.txt

The content of file merged.txt will be

arwan ahmad khoiruddin arwan ahmad khoiruddin arwan ahmad khoiruddin

So, if you want to create big file, you can just repeat the cat as many as possible. For example

\$ cat mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt mytext.txt > merged.txt
