Variable list is not displayed in the page


I'm a beginners with Confluence and i encounter an issue.

In my template Product Requirement, in the page properties, i added a variable with list.

In the preview, everything is ok, i can see the list of values.

But when i enter a product requirement in edit mode, the firld is blanck.

Any idea ?

Thansk in advance.

Hey Manu,

This might be a bug, could you please tell us which version of Confluence you are using and if it's Clustered or not?

Thanks and Regards,

Hi David,

I'm using the last 5.4.4 version, downloaded version too.


Hey Manu,

I tested this locally and it's indeed a bug, I raised a BUG to address this missbehaviour:

Please make sure to vote for that issue and mark yourself as a watcher, also add

your thoughts in there so it can increase the bug relevance :).

hello, I have the same happening. We use 5.4.3

I actually don't know what is the meaning of Clustered, sorry. If it means Downloade, then yes, downloaded version.

I have 2 things to report: when I edit the template, click on add variables, I see the line variables suggestion, but no variable is actually suggested.

When I save, the template includes the variable, but this doesn't show up.

Let me know if I have to report the bug in your jira. Thanks


The above bug I mentioned to Manu also applies on version 5.4.3, regarding your second behaviour, sometimes I hit that one so just try saving the template and edditing again (that should do the trick ;)).

Thanks and Regards,
