Confluence 4, unable to add label for Metadata Macro

Recently upgraded to Confluence 4.0. When inserting a new "Metadata" macro do not see a label option. The screen is blank. We also had {details:label=yyyy} before upgrade. We do not see any option to edit the label for the existing Metadata as well. Is this a bug in Confluence 4 or are we missing something during upgrade?

Issues I see are:

  • When we insert {details:label=uuu} macro labels are not added to that Macro block, Labels are not added to the Page also. Tried as Metadata as well as Wiki Markup. Same issue
  • We are unable to edit the existing macro Label after insertion. There is no option to edit in the Macro editor
  • {detailssummary} is using the page label to pull the Report. Any Number of Metadata ({details}) on that page is Reported in the {detailssummary}. If we have 4 different {details:label=} macros, we get 4 rows in the {detailssummary:label=} report which is not what we want

If I am not mistaken, you should be able to add the columns in the same detailssummary macro entry. You have to do it by hand, as there is no ui for it in the properties dialog.

{detailssummary:label=foo|headings=XXXX,YYYY,ZZZZ}

This would return a single table with 4 columns. The first being a link to the page, the other three being the metadata table you created on each page.

Thanks Rhyne. That worked and helps our requirement.

Sounds like you are using the Confluence Metadata Plugin 2 which has not yet been upgraded for Confluence 4.0.

Please contact the plugin author to request an update for this plugin.

That doesnt seem to be the case. As I study the documentation it is provided by the "Tabular Metadata" plugin which is installed by default in Confluence. I can see that under System Plugins section.

We didn't have any outside plugin installed in 3.5. We were using out of the box {details} and {detailssumary} macros for reporting. After upgrade this looks like broken in our site.
