How to identify pages that reference a given page


I'm relatively new to Confluence and i'm using the cloud version.

I am writing a number of pages that link to other pages and would like to know if there is an easy way for me to list all pages that reference a given page.  For example, I have many policies (multiple pages) that reference a particular control (a single page) so I want to easily find out which policies/pages refer to that single control.

Thanks for any help.

Hello Hilary,

Thank you for contacting us about this. This is definitely a macro I can picture being offered in Confluence, but unfortunately we do not have at this moment.

There are feature requests for this to be implemented in both Server and Cloud:

Please vote on the feature to show your support, and watch the case in order to be updated of any changes.

For the case with Confluence Cloud there is unfortunately no solution at this time.

For Server customers, there is currently an add-on available for Server only, that I will include in case there are any Server users looking for the same functionality. 

Let me know if you have any questions about this!



I found that incoming links are available if you go to a page and select:

... > Advanced details > Page Information

There is an Incoming Links section on that page.

How are you writing these "references" in Confluence?
