When we updated to a newer version of Tempo Budgets, we found that the Confluence macros for showing things like budget / schedule stoplights and the EV/PV/AC line chart were no longer available.
These widgets were very useful, since they let us generate a Confluence page with just the key information we wanted to monitor ~weekly. For us, this was a EV/PV/AC line chart for the overall Tempo Budget portfolio of the project, as well as budget (and sometimes schedule) stoplights for each individual task, maybe stoplights for the overall portfolio as well, and links to the relevant Folios and Portfolios. This page let us very easily keep an eye on the overall EVM, as well as on individual tasks, so we could see if one task was carrying the EVM for another task that was over budget.
The stock reports in the JIRA plugin don't highlight this key information as cleanly, and in particular I don't think they have a way to quickly see budget stoplight information for sub-Folios or especially sub-sub-Folios.
These widgets also mitigated the issue of https://ideas.tempo.io/ideas/T-I-202 since they allowed us to create a page that combined macros showing both a LOE and a non-LOE portfolio.
(edit: I just realized these gadgets still appear to exist on Jira, but my understanding is that they don't work on confluence as per https://tempo-io.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/KB/pages/382730297/Error+when+using+Tempo+gadgets, let me know if that is wrong and I should follow up with our admins)
