let's say I have two pages called "My Sample Requirement" and "Page B".
On "Page B" I'm creating a link to "My Sample Requirement" with the link text "My Sample Requirement". (so it's the same as the title)
Now I'm changing the page name of "My Sample Requirement" to "Some Other Name".
The link on "Page B" still works and points to "Some Other Name", however the link text still is "My Sample Requirement".
Is there a way to have a "dynamic" link text which automatically changes when the underlying page title changes?
In a perfect world, I would think this even further and would love to have a way to use a "page property" as the link text. So it would be great if you could choose between "Custom Link Text", "Page Title" and "Page Property: xyz" as the link text.
Some background on why this would be interesting:
We want to use Confluence as a requirements tool where every requirement is a page. The page title is a short identifier and the page also has a page property called "User Story" which explains the requirement in one sentence.
We are sometimes linking to those requirements based on the title and sometimes based on the "User Story" property. However, since those fields change quite often during specification time, it's hard to always manually change the incoming links as well.
thanks in advance for your help and best regards,
It actually already does this. When you create the link just go to the link button and search for the page and let it populate the name. If you override the text of the link then it will use your override. However, if you let it populate the link text then it will change if you change the page name. I'm on version 5.1.3. I'm not sure what happens before 5.x, but at least in my version it already does what you are asking.
