Can you build a confluence cloud URL to a page without using page id

Robert Gottesman February 23, 2021

Can you build a confluence cloud URL to a page without usage of a page id?  I have done this using the confluence server version .. as sometimes (via the REST API) I need to include a link to a page that does not yet exist.

The current format I see is:

<account><space key>/pages/<page_id>/<page title>

I have seen some suggestions on this topic but none seem to work.

Hi Robert,

Generally you can create an undefined page link in the editor by typing:  [<title>]()

This generates a URL of the form

<account><space key>&title=<title>&fromPageId=<parent page>&linkCreation=true

which should be usable outside the editor as well to link to an undefined page.

An alternative could be using Display URL:<space>/<pageTitle>

Hi Andrew, 

I did a quick manual check and it does work! (thank you)

Is your pearl of wisdom documented anywhere?
