I know JIRA automatically shows in an issue any Confluence page that refers to that issue... but is it possible to go the other way? Is there a way to get a Confluence page to list all issues that refer to it?
I know it's possible to use the JIRA issues macro to embed a search... but the list of issues never seems to update, even when more issues that would match the query are added.
Thanks for your feedback, we are actually working on this new feature right now. From the Confluence page you can click to see all the linked JIRA issues. Here is a sneak peak:
Is that what you are after?
I'm interested to hear what you would use this for
Also, to answer your question: we are tracking the maintenance of certain pieces of equipment via JIRA, and we would like completed and upcoming maintenance tasks for each piece of equipment to appear automatically on that equipment's Confluence page (which stores things like serial numbers, etc.).

It looks like it was released last year. I know I have it on my installation on Conf5.4.4
If you have JQL Tricks plugin installed in your JIRA, you can serach for issues with remote links like this:
jqlField = "http://your_Confluence_page_link"
You can then use this in the JIRA issues macro and the page will show all issues linked to it.
This is a great answer, thank you.
Unfortunately, searches like this don't seem to update... so I'd be stuck with the list of issues that matched the search when I created the page. I'd like something where linking a new issue to the page will cause it to appear on the page.
From your description my suspect is you hit a bug where the issue is not getting updated shown below:
So as a workaround, you will need to flush the caches in Confluence:
Hope this address your issue.
