Is there a possibility to use variables in usual pages (not only in templates)

Hi Patrick,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to meet you!

Variables are only for building templates, and as you discovered, it's not possible to use them within pages.

We have a long-standing feature request for this below:

I do not believe this is something we plan on implementing any time soon, but you're welcome to vote on the request and add your feedback there.

You might want to have a look at the available Confluence add-ons on Marketplace, which have a few that deal with variables. They could help you to accomplish what you need.

Let me know if you have any questions about that.
