Requirement Link with inlined description

Description

Hi there,

We would be pleased if there would be a nice solution for creating a link to a requirement which also contains the headline or a special property of the requirement to be rendered inside the confluence page. This is needed when at least a short description of the requirement is needed inside the page, as a mouseover text is to much hidden for understanding the complete containing requirement.

This could be solved like the JIRA-Macro, which can display a short link with the issue key only and can be expanded to display the summary of the issue.

I've build a workaround with a own macro, containing the macro requirement-link and requirement-report (

). But this is no good solution as the requirement report always displays a complete table with caption (not suitable for fluent text).
This renders into like

Best regards,
Torsten

Hi Torsten,

This is now possible.

In the editor, when you click a macro you will see the details of the original requirement with checkboxes: Just tick them to display the contents inline.

The contents couldn't be displayed inside the lozenge. They are displayed after the requirement key, as simple text. It is a bit unsatisfying.

However, the minute you'll start using it, you'll probably think of a thousand of ways to extend this feature. Implementing nice "inline excerpts" would require a lot of options to fit everyone's needs, and that's why I wasn't keen on implementing it in the first place: It will be confusing if we add even more options than this. But for simple usecases, I think you'll be pretty happy with this behavior.

Best regards,
Adrien
