Confluence Cloud - How to show Version on a page?

Hi all, 

I have used Confluence to document our companies ISO27001 - Information Security Annual Audit Report 2019. It comprises of 90 documents, which I am in the process of writing. Each document has an owner, auditor and most importantly a version number. 

Given Confluence automatically versions every edit of a document I thought this would be handy in displaying on the front page automatically. Also given I am editing all the pages all the time, to update them, I don't want to be manually updating the version number each time. 

However I can't see a way to do this and it is a pain to have to click into the ... to view the page history to pick up the latest version number and then to remember to update the version number on the page. 

Is there a way, a plugin, a macro or something that I can add to each of my pages that will display the pages correct version number. 

Finally don't forget I am on Confluence Cloud. I know user macros are possible on the Server version, but what about he Cloud version? 

Your help in this matter would be much appreciated.

Hi @Mike Bowen 

You can try using the change history Macros.  This will show you the current version of the page. 

Hi @Haran Kumar - Yes, that isn't really an option, given it shows all the previous versions as well. The page I tested it on has over 155 versions. I am after the latest version only. Nice to know though. 


@Mike Bowen  yes, got you point. Maybe ill pinch back in if , I get to meet your need.

As @Mike Bowen pointed out (and that affects me also) he is talking about Confluence CLOUD. Is there a Jira for the feature there, too? Thank you :)
