I am running an Atlassian Confluence Cloud instance, and I am trying to implement a macro to display a subset of back-references filtered by ancestor/label inside the body of a page.
There are examples online that show how to access the "Incoming Links" from a "User Macro", but that approach is not available to a Cloud instance.
I have been poring over the API Docs, but I cannot immediately spot a way to access the incoming links for a given page there either.
Is there any way to do this that does not involve retrieving all space content and then parsing out the links in the body content?
I find it exceedingly frustrating that the information is right there available in the "Page Information" dialog, but there seems to be no way to easily programmatically access it.
I found some add-ons for Confluence Server that display incoming links, but nothing for Cloud. Like you, I also pored over the Cloud REST API docs.
It looks like this feature has been suggested before: Macro: incoming links

Thanks for the link to the suggested feature -- is there anything else to be done to nudge this forward?
I'm especially dismayed that the API has no way to access the metadata about links between content. I know Confluence stores this under the hood in the database somewhere, but without access to it writing clever macros operating on page relationships is almost impossible.
