Configuring a board to add a page from the same space

Boards must be configured to accept page-cards.

Add an existing page to a container

An existing page can be added as a card to a board container.

  • Ensure only Pages is checked

    If Cards is checked you will not be able to add an existing page to the container.

  • Choose + Add page.


  • Enter the name of the existing page. 

The first three letters will provide options for the existing page.

  • Choose the page to add as a card.


The page to be added as a card must be a child page of the board's parent page. By default, the parent page of an added board is the current page (@self). If no parent page is specified, then all the current space pages can be added.

A specific space and parent page can be specified in Board filters in the board editor.


Mouse-over the added page card to display the content of the newly linked page.


Any board container labels are added to the linked Confluence page.


Configuring a board to add a page from any space

The board must be configured to allow existing pages from other spaces.

In the board editor, the board must be configured to accept page-cards and cards and to search and display pages from all spaces.

  • edit the board Properties to accept page-cards and cards.
  • edit the board Filter to search and display pages from all spaces by checking All spaces and removing any specified parent page including the default value of @self.


The board can also be configured to search in a specific space rather than any space.

Add an existing page from another space to a container

  • Choose + Add page.


  • check the option to Search all spaces.


  • enter the initial characters of the page to be added.


  • choose the page to add as a card to the container.
