Hello! I am creating pages on Confluence programmatically using the REST API. I need to store some tables that I need to retrieve (using an XML parser) and update later. In order to tell which table is which, I am trying to store attributes to the HTML tags in Confluence, but Confluence seems to drop them when saving the page content.
For example, when I send Confluence this
<tbody tid="a-very-specific-table"> ... </tbody>
Confluence accepts it but later on when I retrieve the page the table drops the attributes I gave it:
<tbody> ... </tbody>
Is there a way to store my own attributes or otherwise tag a table with some metadata so that I can retrieve it later?
Many thanks in advance!
What if when you create you page, you try to wrap your custom attributed tables in a HTML macro
<ac:structured-macro ac:name="html"> <ac:plain-text-body> <![CDATA[ TABLE here ]]> </ac:plain-text-body> </ac:structured-macro>
will this work or still will strip-off your custom attributes?
My XML parser would not even allow me to do that in the first place because it's missing Confluence's namespace and XML descriptions. Even when I try to parse a confluence page that has <ac:...></ac:...> tags in it, it strips them off. (https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/11455197/)
