Can you keep track of the number of lines in a table in the page properties?

A typical example using the "Product Requirements" blueprint available by default in Confluence:

The blueprint includes a "Requirements" table. Would there be a way to get the number of lines in this table as a variable and use it in the Page Properties macro? I would find that an interesting metrics to show in the Page Properties report.

There is no easy way to get that value populated dynamically. It is not an ideal solution, but I would start with adding new 'Requirements count' property to your 'Product Requirements' blueprint, and updating the count manually when you add/remove requirements.
