Content by Label Macro include only current site

I want to create a table on an parent page, which has all important data in it.

This data is in an exerpt macro and will show up on the parent page.

Now I want to have the name and the labels of the site shown in the parent page.

So I inserted the content by label macro, but it is showing all pages with the label and I want only the current page to show up in this macro. 

Is this somehow possible or is there a way to show only the labels from each page in the a table?

Hi there Florian,

for the use case you are describing, I think the Page Properties Macro might be a better solution than the content by label macro. Read more here.

If you want to continue with the Content by label macro, you could define a custom creation date under the macro settings, created section. Maybe that helps you to only show your current page

Let me know if that helps.


Hi Robert,

Thanks for your helping comment!

You were right, the page properties macro is a better solution.


But I have still a question, is it possible to get the labels into the page properties macro on the child page, so it will show up on the parent page?


Hi Florian,

I'm not sure if this is possible on Confluence Server, at least I'm not aware of a macros that would display the labels of a page 

Unless someone else has a better solution, you could duplicate the page labels using a status element. Not sure if that helps. 


Hi Robert,

Unfortunally this is not what I need, but this is no problem. Enter the labels twice isn't that much more work to do.

Thank you for you help!
