Template with Database as Initial Content for page creation

Hendrik Hillus November 10, 2023

Hello Community and Atlassian,

Question: How do I set the "database entry" macro to display the entry that has just been created when using the Field Type Page link?


Problem: In the Template, when inserting the "database entry" macro I have no option to choose "current page" or something similar. I was able to do this with another database and another template.

  • Database is set up in the space "Databases"
    • The Field "Page Title" is the Title Field of the Database
    • The Scope is set to be selectable in other spaces
  • Template is set up as a Space Template in the space "Databases"
  • The Field "Page Title" is of the type "Page link"
    • "Enable page creation" is chacked
    • "Initial Content" is set to the Template

Additional Screenshots:

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

The initial content "Database entry macro" is not sufficient in this case unfortunately.
