Copying Confluence page from one space to another and updates.



I wanted to know if when I copy a Confluence page with embedded JIRA links in it from one space to another and I update the Original page, will it automatically make the updates the the copied version. If not automatic is there a way it can be done?

No, a copy at a point in time is a copy.  You'll get what you copied.  If the source is completely rewritten or even destroyed, the copy is not affected.

That's the point of a copy, it's independent of the original.  It can't (and shouldn't) be affected by the original.

However, Confluence also caters for "single source of truth".  This means not "copying", but "going back to source".  Instead of making (potentially redundant) copies, use includes and pull data from your single source.  Don't have 42 pages which are all copies of the same thing, have 1 page as the source of the right data and then include it in the other 41 places.  Edit the source, no-one else has to do anything.

Thanks, I needed a copy as I have a restricted Vendor space so do not want the Vendor to see the full content of the space I admin internally but would like to update the internal page and as stated flows through to the Vendor space. How do I do "Single source of truth"?
