Consider a page, P1, in space, S1.

When we copy P1 as P2 into space S2, P1 and P2 are treated independently. That means when we change P2, P1 will not register the same change. This can be convenient in certain scenarios.

In my use case, I want to copy P1 into S2 without creating P2. It is equivalent to creating a shortcut of P1 in S2. Is it possible?

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You can't create a page without having a page there.

But you can share content on pages between them.

  • Create P1 with all the content you want
  • Create P2 where you need the copy of P1, but don't copy P1
  • Give P2 the content of a single macro: //include : P1

The include macro renders the content of a page within another page.  If you now were to edit P2, you'll only see the macro, but if you edit the content of P1, then P2 will display the changed content, because P2 is simply reading P1 for all of it.

You can also use //include-excerpt to do the same for parts of pages.
