I am looking to see if I can have multiple documents with its own corresponding pages be merged programatically via Chili APIs. Would this be feasible or require some feature request?

 

Example:

client 1 has a document that has 2 pages which are front and back of a postcard.

client 2 has a document that has a single page of a postcard.

Goal: Create a separate document that has the combined document of client 1 and 2 which includes the user specified attributes. Any time a document is editied, look to regenerate the centralized document with the most up to date.

Thoughts: I was planning on copying each document to a separate folder and see if there was a way to combine them programmatically but wasnt sure how that can be done.

Hi @Daniel Park welcome

Solution 1: Excerpt include macro.

Basically, you'd include the content of Page A on the Page B. If content Page A changes, it will be reflected in Page B.

Or, you can have Page A and Page B and a master Page C showing, thru excerpt include macro, content of Page A and Page. Effectively, you'd sync content of Page A and Page B to Page C.

Note: Excerpt will not change the look of your pages.

Solution 2:

This is for a more complex scenario when you work across multiple Confluence sites.

It involves using Space Sync app to sync pages (every which way as you desire :) ) among multiple spaces and sites. You can use it with excerpt too - cool but definitely requiring procedural discipline :)
