How do I make the confluence pages I've created using a web request automatically appear as a linked page, or "mentioned in" on my Jira issues? 

 

Context:

I've set up a rule automation in Jira using the "Send web request" action, to create pages in a confluence space triggered from an issue in Jira,

The request that creates my page. I'm using the variables under "value" to apply a template that was defined in previous stages of the automation. (I couldn't use the pre-built create a confluence page action because it doesn't support setting the parent page with smart values)

The page that is created in Confluence is titled using smart values and follows a format of "{{issue.key}}: {{issue.summary}}", and I've used some custom formatting to insert the link of the triggering Jira issue into the body of the confluence page.

The problem:

However, with all of these connections and references, once the rule has run and I refresh the issue in Jira, the confluence page does not appear under a "mentioned in" section. I want the pages that I've created during this rule to be automatically linked either directly, or at least use the "mentioned in" feature so I don't need to manually link it each time. Is this a bug? How do I set this up so my pages get linked to the issue?

The issue view after the automation has run, and the page has been refreshed.
