Any free option to highlight JSON in Confluence?

Is anyone aware about an easy way to highlight JSON in Confluence? And it should be for free, if possible.

You should have a syntax highlight option in the code macro for JSON.


Hi Davin and thanks for your answer.

Do you mean something as discussed here: like JSON syntax highlighting in confluence code block, specially Json Brush for SyntaxHighlighter?

Davin Studer Community Leader Sep 19, 2019

Silly me. You know what, I forgot that I did add JSON as a custom syntax highlighter. It doesn't come by default. And I actually did get the brush from the second link you provided. Once you have that you can upload it into Confluence in Confluence Admin -> Configure Code Macro.

Thanks a lot for your help, Davin. It works!

Glad that helped.

May be it was in past - but now I don't see JSON in list :

You have to add the JSON highlighter brush. it is not there by default. See the comment by @Jose M_ on Sep 19th, 2019 above and my reply below it.
