Send and email with a link to a Confluence page created by Automation schedule

Kathy Hart Community Leader Jun 08, 2022

I'm using Confluence Cloud

I have a Confluence Automation task that creates a new Status Report page (based on a template) on a Schedule (once every 2 weeks). 

I also have it send out an email to 4 people when the page is created, so we know to go review the report and update it. All that works great!

My question is, how to put a LINK to that page in the email. I assume I need to use a SmartValue, but the one I found doesn't put in a link. It just puts in the title and it is not. 

Please review and update the AID Weekly Status report on the newly created page. 

Does anybody know the smart value to make that a link?  

The only resource I can find is the Jira Automation smart values pages, and they don't seem to include that.

Am new to Confluence too! Can I know how to generate reports? TBH, anything on reporting capabilities of Conf will be a help for me.

Hi Kathy,

So my first question is if this is related to early access to confluence cloud automation? The reason I ask is that without this I'm unsure how you're creating a Confluence page unless it's somehow related to a Jira issue. If you could and light me on this I might have some further ideas. One thing I'm wondering is if it is possible to automatically add watchers to the new page or not.
