Scriptrunner: Macro code broken after manipulating body with setBodyAsString


Hi all!

We want to strip out some divs that where accidentally added to the body content by the google translate browser extension. 

The stripping works great but other macros are broken because the hard-coded indentation within the macro xml that are interpreted as spaces at the beginning of the macro options values.

Is there a way to prevent this automatic modification?


Thanks a lot!




def SpaceKey = 'TPFR3';

import com.atlassian.confluence.pages.PageManager

import com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.SpaceManager

import com.atlassian.sal.api.component.ComponentLocator

import org.jsoup.Jsoup

import org.jsoup.*

import org.jsoup.nodes.*

def pageManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(PageManager)

def spaceManager = ComponentLocator.getComponent(SpaceManager)

def targetSpace = spaceManager.getSpace(SpaceKey)

pageManager.getPages(targetSpace, true).each { page ->

log.debug "Inspecting page ${page.title}"

def body = page.bodyContent.body

def parsedBody = Jsoup.parse(body)

def macroBody ="div.gtx-trans-icon")

log.debug "elements:" + macroBody

if (!macroBody.empty) {

log.debug "elements:" + macroBody

pageManager.saveNewVersion(page) { pageObject ->






Modified with spaces and indents
