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
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.
@Sherif_Mansour , @richie_gee , @Steven_Behnke --- Unless I'm mistaken this Feature never happened -- Since this is marked as solved, should we create a new product feedback?
This is presently the top search result for this feature:
To be clear, I want essentially a new option in the Page Properties Report macro which has a simple option that would say "Show all Jira incidents which link to this present page".
This way, instead of trying to manually add labels or Hard coding it, I could easily (and automatically) show everything on my project page we're doing in relation to it.
Right now, the options are way too clunky and not intuitive. Doing this (or something similar to my solution) would be incredibly helpful and streamline cohesiveness between the two products.
I'd like to do this with Help desk tickets as well, though thats another battle in of itself.
I shouldn't have to resort to a paid marketplace app for this, as its relatively basic functionality.
