I'm trying to automatically set parts of the title in pages created with a macro, inspiation found here: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/How-to-count-the-number-of-child-pages-with-a-particular-label/qaq-p/445878
The macro I've written counts the child pages of the current parent, and returns that number + 1, indicating the numeric title of the page to be created
1 Parent (this page has a "create from template" button) 1.1 Child one 1.2 Child two 1.3 Child three, etc.
The parent page has a "Create from template" button. When trying to use the `countChildren` macro when generating the `Child one` pages and so on from a Template, the returned number of children is zero. I suspect the macro doesn't recognize `1 Parent` as a parent page anymore.
How do I refer to the `parent` page which calls the template in a macro?
## @noparams #set($pageCount=0) #foreach ($child in $content.children) #set($pageCount = $pageCount + 1) #end $pageCount
One thing that's nice about user macros is that just about nothing is impossible :)
This might work for you:
## @noparams #set ( $Long = $generalUtil.systemStartupTime ) #set ( $templateParent = "" ) #set ( $referer = $req.getHeader("referer") ) #if ( $referer.contains("fromPageId=") ) #foreach ( $part in $referer.split("&") ) #if ($part.contains("fromPageId=") ) #set ( $templateParent = $part.replace("fromPageId=", "") ) #end #end #end #set ( $templateParent = $req.getParameter("fromPageId") ) #if ( $templateParent != "" ) #set ( $parentPage = $pageManager.getPage($Long.parseLong($templateParent)) ) #else #set ( $parentPage = $content.parent ) #end #set ( $pageCount = 0 ) #foreach ( $child in $parentPage.children ) #set ( $pageCount = $pageCount + 1 ) #end <span>$pageCount</span>
