Search confluence database for JIRA reference

Good afternoon. Would love to get some help on how Confluence Pages and Issues are "linked" in JIRA. In the interface of both systems, the linking occurs using a macro, but in the Confluence database I cannot find the data on the links to JIRA, please help with the question. Thank you in advance.

The jira issues macro data is stored in a couple places. The data in the macro is stored in the bodycontent table. It looks something like:

<p><ac:structured-macro ac:name="Jira"><ac:parameter ac:name="columns">key,summary,type,created,updated,due,assignee,reporter,priority,status,resolution</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="server">Jira Old</ac:parameter><ac:parameter ac:name="serverId">79f0263c-a3a5-323b-870c-aea1895cabeb</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="key">TST-1</ac:parameter></ac:structured-macro></p>

The plugin backing the macro lives elsewhere in the database and only converts/renders the above code block into something usable. The following links may give you something to go on.
