Connecting/linking requirements in confluence

 

Is I am writing requirement specifications using the confluence template

On the top level I have system requirements with for example accuracy requirements specification

Some of the involved software requirements needs to get linked to these accuracy requirements since they are part in a chain of software components to satisfy the system requirements.

I would like to keep the requirement only on system requirement level and then connect/link to this system requirement from the corresponding requirement for each software component

 

Example:

System Req page

ItemStoryNotes 
#1 detectection needs to be within +-2 mm 
    
    

 

Software Component 1 req Page

ItemStoryNotes 
#12   
#13JIRA ticket 123

System Req: #1 

"detectection needs to be within +-2 mm"

 
#14   

 

What I would like is that in the description/Notes for Software Component 1 req Page #13 I get link/see the requirement stated in System req Page #1

Is this doable in some magic way? Or do you have a suggestion on another way to solve this?

Thanks in advance

/Oscar

I tried the excerpt macro.. but as I understand it is only possible to have one excerpt macro on each page according to the docs on this page: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/excerpt-include-macro-148067.html

Any other suggestions?
