Why is the Children Display macro showing an error that it's unable to render and "Page not found"?

I have been using the Children Display macro successfully and it has suddenly stopped working when I select a specific parent page. 

It is currently working if use it "out of the box" and don't reference a different page than I am currently editing.  i.e. it works if I want to list the child pages for the page I am currently working on, but it does not work if I select a different page to be the parent page.  This is the error I am receiving:

@hali_wong I have seen a number of users reporting this issue the past 36 hours. I cannot state with certainty that they are all related issues, but the Statuspage is currently showing degraded performance related to Create and Edit - which can affect some macro usage.


It may also be related the browser you are using - may I ask what browser and version you are on?

Hi @hali_wong 

This error usually rings to me like possible permission issue of the page or there is some restriction applied on that page. Please check if you there are necessary page permissions to view that page.



Thank you @Vishwas N M I checked the permissions and restrictions and there are no restrictions and I have full viewing and editing permissions for the pages I'm attempting to link to.

hey @hali_wong 

didn't know it was bug in the confluence system, please follow the ticket sent by @Andy Gladstone to see the resolution.
