I would like to document my IT setup in Confluence Cloud.
For example, here's the pages I had in mind:
So I have all these interconnected pages, and would like to know if I can avoid creating all these links manually. Is that possible in Confluence? So for example, both the Server1 page and the Backup page link to Service1, is it possible for the Service1 page to automatically include to these pages that link to it? Some other wikis have a "pages that link here" macro.
The use cases mentioned in the scenario are possible using different macros in Confluence.
For example, on the Home Page, you can have the macro to chow the child pages where all the pages for servers (and others) would be reflected.
Similarly, you can look at the native macro library and select the one best suited for your needs while creating the pages. All of this is really intuitive in Confluence.
Let me know if you need any help with a particular use case.
Kindly accept the answer if this helps.
Thanks @Gaurav . I think I need to explain more about what I'm trying to do.
This will be my page hierarchy:
In this case, I would like the ServiceA page to automatically link to Server1, Backups, and ServiceX, because they all reference it. And if I create SomeRandomPage and link to ServiceA, I would also like to see it in ServiceA's page.
In some other wikis, links in one direction can be used to automatically generate a link in the opposite direction.
The parent/child hierarchy doesn't help here. I would see by looking at the tree on the left that ServiceA is a child of Server1, but it wouldn't tell me that ServiceA is referenced in the Backups and ServiceX pages, unless I add those links manually.
Thanks for explaining the use case. Based on this, I would suggest using the combination of macros called 'Page Properties' and 'Page Properties Report'. These 2 together should help you implement this.
The details and steps for implementation are mentioned in the documentation.
Please let me know and accept the answer if this helps.
