Create a Link to access to a macro


I woul like to creat a link opening directly the pop up parameters of a defined macro, without having to click « insert macro » and after searching the macro in the macro browser.

I would like in one click to have access to the parmaters of the macro, is it possible and how ?

Hallo Gabi

It depends which version of Confluence you are using. If you are using Confluence 3.5 (or Confluence 4.0, now in beta release) in the rich text editor, you can use the macro "autocomplete" functionality. It's much quicker and less annoying than using the mouse to open the macro browser.

To use autocomplete, just start typing the curly bracket and the beginning of the macro name. A dropdown menu will appear, offering some suggestions. The suggestions will change to match your typing. As soon as you see the macro you want, select it with arrow keys or mouse. That will open the macro dialogue with the parameters.

I hope that answers the question. :)



Hello Sarah,

I'm using the version 3.5 (and testing the 4.0 beta) of Confluence.

You are rignt the auto complete macro work, but the goal was to provide a direct link for one macro, in a model of page, with scaffolding, to be sure all the users will be able to use the same macro at the same place for a kind of pages.

Is their an other way to have this result ?
