Does Atlassian think of supporting the add-on "Incoming Links"?

In my organization we would like to use the add-on Incoming Links in order to trace requirements. Unfortunately the plugin is unsupported by Atlassian. But we are not allowed to install unsupported add-ons in our productive environment, as those add-ons may not work in future versions of Confluence.

Does Atlassian think of supporting this add-on in the future or is there an alternative?

Best regards,

Raphael

Hi Raphael,

The unsupported doesn't necessarily means that the plugin won't work, but this usually means that Atlassian doesn't support it if we find that some issue is being caused by the plugin. I can suggest to get in touch with the plugin vendor in case you have some issue directly related to that plugin.

Regards,

Rodrigo

You could replicate the functionality of this addon with a user macro. Then you could maintain it yourself.
