Query regarding custom user macro for importing MS Excel data

Hello Confluence Experts,

I have a use case wherein I need to import a MS Excel data into Confluence.

One excel row needs to be created as one new page and columns in that excel needs to mapped/linked to another existing static pages in the the same Confluence space.

By reading some Confluence docs, I got to know that I might need to create a new custom User Macro to perform this import.

Can any expert guide me further Or if someone working on similar macro help me out to do it fast?


Thanks in advance.

Hi @Ashutosh Dwivedi 

You do not need a user macro for this.

What you need is a script (Python or something else) which uses the REST API from confluence to create the pages. 

All about REST API is here: 

You will need the Create Content section.

Hi @Dominic Lagger 

Thanks for your valuable suggestion.

Do you have any sample script calling Content creation APIs of Confluence?

If yes, that would be really great.

this is a main part of creating a new page in confluence

mypage = {"type":"page","title":""+NEWPAGENAME+"","ancestors":[{"id":PARENTID}],"space":{"key":""+SPACEKEY+""},"body":{"storage":{"value":"" + PAGE_IN_STORAGE_FORMAT+ "", "representation": "storage"}}}
post ='/rest/api/content/', data=json.dumps(mypage), auth=auth, headers=headers, verify=False)
newpageId = json.loads(post.text)['id']

You need auth and headers:

headers = {
'X-Atlassian-Token': 'no-check',
'Content-Type': 'application/json'
auth=(user, password)

This is written in python

Regards, Dominic
