Finding incoming links

Hello,

I have a general question in how/if the following scenario can be accomplished in Confluence.

I have 2 spaces, A and B. Pages in space A have a content-by-label macro that filter out pages in space B. What I want to accomplish is to navigate from space A by clicking on one result from the content-by-label macro to a page in space B. When I end up on the page in space B I would like to have a macro here that lists every page in space A that refers to my space B page. I.e all content-by-label macros in space A that give my space B page as a result.

I want to use content-by-label macros in space A because I do not want to use hard-links in space A to space B pages. This would lead to too much maintenance. (Otherwise I could have just used the "incoming-links" information on the page.)

Do you know if this can be accomplished? Or is there a better approach to achieve this navigating functionality?

In the long run, I probably would like to involve more spaces with pages that refer to each other.

Hoping for a reply.

Regards,

/Tomas

Hi Tomas,

Would Customware's Linking Plugin work for what you want to do? It has an {incoming-links} macro which will display links to the page you are viewing. Not sure if it allows you to restrict the links to those from a particular space though.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your comment. I have looked at that plugin, but to my understanding that plugin uses the "incoming links" information on a page. That is, I would need to "hard-link" all my page references for that to work. Which I do not want to do. I want a more generic way to point out pages; for instance by the content-by-label macro.

Hi Andrew,

I downloaded the plugin, but I'm not sure how to install it. I get a .key file. What do I do with it? :-P

Thanks,

Mary

Hi Mary,

You should get an OBR file which can be installed the same as a JAR file. This is the direct link to the OBR https://marketplace.atlassian.com/download/plugins/net.customware.confluence.plugin.linking/version/68

Andrew.

Thanks Andrew! So, what program should I use to run the obr file?

Hi Mary,

You should be able to just install the OBR file via the Confluence user interface. Have a look at "Installing by file upload" in the doc at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/UPM/Installing+Add-ons

Cheers,

Andrew.

Thank you, Andrew!
