[CONF] Get ID for parent page?

Seems quite simple but can't figure it out. How do you get the page id for the parent page?

  • I know you can do $content.getIdAsString() to get the current page's ID.
  • I know you can do $content.getParent() to get the parent page.
  • But $content.getParent().getIdAsString() seems to do nothing.

I can't seem to find anything relevant in the API docs that explains how/if this is possible.

What version of Confluence are you using? This worked for me, which is exactly what you tried.

$content.getParent().getIdAsString()

Maybe you're running the macro on the root page of the space (so it has no parent)?
