I have a very similar needs: I need to automatically generate HTML content and PUT it to the Confluence page.
My particular page should contain an "Expand" macro. I tried to copy HTML block containing it from another page and then modify and PUT it to Confluence, but got a view like this:
As you can see - macro doesn't work.
When I looked deeply in HTML code - I saw that each <div> tag containing macro looks like follows:
<div id="expander-2068011896" class="expand-container conf-macro output-block" data-hasbody="true" data-macro-name="expand" data-macro-id="c58eaef6-decc-453b-b27c-4807ca9e9950">
<div id="expander-control-2068011896" class="expand-control"><span class="expand-control-iconicon"> </span><span class="expand-control-text">Click here to expand...</span></div>
There are some attributes like:
Maybe the problem is that this ID's generating dynamically by backend once you publishing Confluence page throw web-browser, and works only in particular Confluence page? Just a suggestion...
However, the main question: how can I create HTML code containing Confluence macro, so that the macro will work properly in web-browser, after publishing it by REST API?
@Stephen Sifers, please share your suggestions.
It will be very appreciated!
Confluence doesn't use HTML but it's own version of XHTML as its storage format. When you view a page that storage format will be transformed into HTML. As you've already experienced trying to store that view HTML won't work. To create a expand macro you'll want to use the following storage format:
<ac:structured-macro ac:name="expand" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:rich-text-body> <p>expandable content goes here</p>
