"Search and Link" functionality in Confluence Cloud?

As I add new pages to my Confluence Space, is there any way I can run a search across all already existing pages to find every instance of a particular text string where I would want to create a link to my new page - and create that link with a single click?

Exactly like the classic "Search and Replace" functionality, but "Search and Link" instead.

For example, I have created many pages which refer to the acronym "MQL" (Marketing Qualified Lead). I have now created a page which explains in detail what "MQL" means, how they are generated, measured etc

I would like to do a "search and link" across all my existing pages so that everywhere that the text "MQL" exists, it gets linked to my new page. 

Is this possible?

Hi @Spencer Marlow and welcome to the community

Short answer, unfortunately, is no. You can't do that. :/
