Hi Kyle,

this is not working out of the box in Confluence. There is an app from Service Rocket called "Scaffolding Forms & Templates" which adds live templates to Confluence. We use the app for this purpose and it works well.

But of course, there may be other apps in the marketplace for that purpose as well.

Hi Kyle,

This is not possible in Confluence, and we don't have intentions to implement it in the future.

I've seen the add-on Scaffolding Templates and I believe if you use this one to update templates, you can also update the live pages as well.

Perhaps it will be useful for you in the future?

Otherwise you could try automating the updates using API but this would be a bit tricky and require some existing development and API knowledge.

Regards,

Shannon
