Hi @Sridevi Dwaraganath 

Out of the box, this isn't possible.

The only way I could think of, would be an user macro, which includes the live macro and some javascript and css, where you would change the background-color.

Are you familiar with User Macros, Javascript and CSS?

Hi @Sridevi Dwaraganath 

This is a possible user macro:

## Macro title: Live Search Colored
## Macro has a body: N
## Developed by: Dominic
## Date created: 05/12/2019
## Installed by: Dominic

## This is an example macro
## @param Color:title=Color|type=string|default=red|desc=Color by name or by HEX

<div id="livesearchmacro">
<ac:structured-macro ac:name="livesearch" ac:schema-version="1" ac:macro-id="842a4a89-897c-419a-b917-b84087bd1281">
<ac:parameter ac:name="size">large</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="placeholder">Live search</ac:parameter>
var input = document.getElementById("livesearchmacro").getElementsByClassName("text")[0] = "$paramColor"


  • The user macro just includes the "Live Search" macro in "Storage Format"
  • If you want other options from the "Live Search" macro, just copy the generated storage format into this user macro

Hope this helps. Let me know, when you have further questions

Regards, Dominic

<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="0b124fdb-5328-4c1c-878b-0c931f1c721f" ac:name="livesearch" ac:schema-version="1">

For user macros you need to be an administrator.
