Embedded Confluence Smartlinks just got smarter (and faster)!

Hi everyone, I’m Annie Lieu, a Product Manager focused on building integrated Confluence Cloud experiences across Atlassian’s products to help you work better together.

I’m happy to announce an upgrade to our previous rollout of embedding full Confluence pages into Smart Links!


:celebrate: What’s new:

The Smartlink Embed Confluence page experience now supports anchored links to Confluence pages' headings and subheadings! This means the embedded Confluence links directly to a desired section on the page, instead of the entire page.

Try having an embed Confluence page load straight to the important stuff for your audience within any Atlassian product today!


:mouse_three_button: Before, it would take time to scroll to relevant content heading in an embedded window.



:timer: After, you can load relevant heading content right away in an embedded window


How to use this?

  1. Click on a ‘hyperlink’ icon for a heading in a Confluence page you want to copy paste somewhere else.

  2. After pasting, you can choose to display the Confluence Smart Link as an “embed”.

:heart: Anchored Smart Link embeds help you:

  • Load relevant content immediately: Embed pages without scrolling through irrelevant sections

  • Build a unified story: Tell a story through blocks of Confluence content across different Atlassian products.

  • Provide better context: Reference rich content from any Confluence page without having to leave the page the embed page is presented on.


For example….:think:

👉 Ever feel like you’re constantly having to update the same information across multiple platforms?

With anchored embedded Confluence smartlinks, a section of text could be linked across multiple Atlassian objects/Confluence pages and edited from any one place. Add more confidence to the changes that come with working in agile environments!

This works across many Atlassian products that use the editor:

  • :confluence: Confluence - In the page body or page comments

  • Jira - Issue descriptions

    • :jira: Jira Software - In addition to Smart Link embeds, Jira Software has an even more powerful embedded page experience available. Learn more

    • :jira-work-management: Jira Work Management

    • :jira_service_desk: Jira Service Management

    • :jira_align: Jira Align

  • :trello: Trello - Create a Link Card by pasting a Confluence page URL into the title of your card. Click the preview button from your board view to open the embedded Confluence page

  • Team Central - Status updates


We hope this enhances your everyday work flow in Confluence and the Atlassian suite. Enjoy! Leave any feedback in the comments below and stay tuned for more updates!

Anchored smart link embeds, I'm so in love! I recently played with anchors, and I dreamed about having a bit more functionality to it. This feature would resolve so many possible issues and reduce the time spent searching and digging!

It’s a great step @Annie Lieu I would be careful about the use of the term ‘anchor’ here though as it can cause confusion between page anchors and the hyperlink to heading that is being used to create these next-gen Smart Links.

Nice! Wondering if this feature might (partially) remove the need for using 'excerpt macro' 🤔 Guessing sometimes it would be easier to just copy and paste hyperlinks to a heading, probably for some working materials/docs.

Definitely easier to reference work from some other page @Tomislav Tobijas

However, the beauty of the Excerpt Include macro is that it can strip away the surrounding border to make the content look like it was authored inline on the page rather than being a reference to something that exists somewhere else.
