Is it possible to build custom URLs?

Hello everyone!

I want to have a variable called ServerName that i can set so that all the links on my page will be like:


This way a server migration that involves an URL change would be easy to maintain.

PS: new to confluence so if there's a basic functionality for this all the better.

Not quite a variable, but there are a couple of options.  Have a look in the admin section for "user macros" and "shortcut links".

User macros are more powerful, but not available for Cloud, and probably overkill.  I think the shortcut links will do what you need.

Hi Nic,

Thank you for the answer. Searching for shortcut links on google, i get that these are available for an older version as i can't seem to find the option when i go into space tools:

I am able to use macros i think since i see them in the dropdown and have the other macros option to search for one... however i am lost ... do i need a specific macro for this task? if so what settings should i apply.

Thanks again!

It's not in space tools, it's a global configuration.  You need to be an admin to set them up - click on the cog at the top right, and you should find "shortcut links" in the left-hand bar on the 5th or 6th line.

You can use macros on Cloud, but not user macros.
