Problems with label macros across spaces


We use both the Content by Label Macro and the Page Properties Macro to display content across multiple spaces for specific Labels.

These were working correctly but they are now no longer displaying content from any space but the one the macro is used in even is spaces are specified explicitly in the macro.

Atlassian team this appears to be a recent bug introduced as the same problem was raised here recently Is anyone else experiencing issues with the Content By Label macro? 



Atlassian Support has indicated that these issues are covered under the following known bugs with the status of AWAITING RELEASE:

Thank you so much for the update, @Brett Henderson !  I'll check out the linked issues and watch them too!

Edit - I spoke too soon, they are private - but thank you again for reaching out to Atlassian via support, Brett!

I'd also found that and have raised that with Atlassian. They will hopefully be public over night my time (Australia) as the owners are in the US.

I've heard they are both internal bugs, and hence not publicly accessible.

Atlassian Support has indicated the bugs should now be resolved, and in my cloud instance that appears to be the case.

Hi, all. I came here today because it looks like the monkeys were at it with their wrenches again. . . this macro is no longer dynamically updating. 

I created the page that the macro is on and the labels for it a couple of weeks ago, if that helps. In other words, it was a fresh page with fresh instances of the content by label macro). It is not dynamically updating. Not even when the page is reloaded, all my browser cache is cleared out. What I have to do it go into each instance of the macro, edit it (changing nothing), save it again, and re-publish the page. This is ridiculous. If I need to manually go in and make it keep track of the labels, I could just update the list of pages myself and not use the macro at all. The whole point was the automate the lists.

Can I get confirmation from anyone else?
