Reporting Jira Data Provider macro allows reading of Jira issue data from the specified Jira instance. The issues are searched by specified JQL query. The max number of issues may be specified, but cannot be higher than 1000 items. Data providers in Reporting return data in a form of an array of JSON objects - one JSON object per each report line. Then, in Reporting Table Item formulas these objects may be accessed via CurrentItem variable.
