Jira issues with linked confluence page

In Confluence we have a description of all pages of our application. In jira we add a link to a page description for each issue we have. What we would like is to have a list of all jira issues that were linked to a certain page description.

With the jira macros plugin in confluence it is possible to link a jira issue or a table of jira issues based on jql. Problem with that is that it is not possible (or at least i dont know how) to search for linked confluence pages. So i would like a table in confluence with all jira issues that have a link to a certain confluence page.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how i can achieve this?

Hi Marcel,

This is actually part of the latest release of Confluence.

So I would say : upgrade your Confluence instance and be happy :)

Best regards,


Sweet stuff, thank you Peter!

Hi Peter,

we have upgraded to the newest confluence and newest jira. But i dont seem to find how to achieve my described situation.

In confluence i have a page called A.

In Jira i have added a link to page A for issues 5, 9 and 13.

In page A i can add the Jira macro, but that only allows me to add a single issues or issues as a result from a JQL. In JQL i dont know how to make a selection for all issues that have page A as link. I want to do it this way so that if someone adds a link to page A the issue will be added to the list, instead of manually adding it to page A.
