Permalinks with anchor

Are there any way to generate a share link URL with anchor as a permalink?

  • Instead of using naive URL pages/viewpage.action?pageId=... , share link URL is recommended to share because pageId will be changed as page version incremented. Share URL is permalink for the page.
  • To navigate specific position in page, anchor which ToC macro generates is used.
  • Regarding both, I'm searching for the way to generate a share link URL with anchor like https://confluence/x/cYTy#some_position_in_page

Hello Ryota,

It's not possible to automatically generate the link, but you should be able to simply add a hashtag # and the name of the anchor after the Tiny URL, as in your example.

So:

Let's take a tiny URL for one Atlassian page: https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/siAC

If I take the hashtag and anchor name from that page (#Anchors-Step1Step1:Createtheanchor) and add it to the tiny URL, you end up with the tiny URL which has a working anchor tag: https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/siAC#Anchors-Step1Step1:Createtheanchor. This URL will now lead you to the anchor in that page, as you can check with this example.

Are you able to link to your anchors in this way? 

Kind Regards,
Shannon
