Displaying the latest page revison and the last update date


I'm trying to create a user macro that displays the latest page version and the date the latest page was created. (Its part of a project to manage version control). I know the Change History macro exists but its too verbose.

I started to write a user macro as follows:

## Macro title: Page Version

## Macro has a body: N

## Body processing: No macro body


## Developed by: David Gibbons

## Date created: 09/12/2015

## Installed by:


## @noparams

<p>Confluence $generalUtil.versionNumber<p>

<p> Page Version $confPage.version</p>

<p> Page Version $confPage.versionComment<p>


When the macro runs it will display the current Confluence version but won't display the page version. Am I using the right variable or should I be using a different method,

 is the variable which holds reference to your current page
## @noparams
&lt;p&gt;Confluence: $generalUtil.versionNumber&lt;p&gt;
&lt;p&gt; Page Version: $content.version&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt; Page Version comment: $content.versionComment&lt;/p&gt;

Objects available to your macro

Including the macro body and parameters, the following Confluence objects are available to the macro:



Class Reference


The body of the macro (if the macro has a body)


$paramfoo$parambar, ...$param<name>

Named parameters ("foo", "bar") passed to your macro.



The BootstrapManager object, useful for retrieving Confluence properties.



The PageContext object, useful for (among other things) checking$renderContext.outputType



The Space object that this content object (page, blog post, etc) is located in (if relevant).



The current ContentEntity object that this macro is a included in (if available).
