One of the ways my company uses Confluence is for field service reports of our machines. One of the things that has always been a pain is having to generate a table containing all of the client's machines for each report.
Is there a way to pass a dynamic variable to a PocketQuery query that will make this process easier?
Our data structure: a table containing company address, ID number, and list of machines.
Can I pass the company's ID, for example, to a query that pulls the machines for that ID and place it into a table for each Confluence page?
Just to clarify I know that I can already do this using a query containing the correct company ID, but the ID is just a number that does not change. Doing what I am attempting to accomplish in this way would mean that I'd have to create a new PocketQuery query for each company, which would amount to thousands of macros whose only different would be a number!
If not, do you have any suggestions about how I can tackle an issue like this?
EDIT: I was thinking about attempting to create a macro if it would give me the functionality I'm looking for. I know it is possible to embed macros within other macros, do you think I could do something like the following mockup using pocketquery if what I ask in the original question is not possible?

Didn't get a notification on this either. As Christian mentioned, you can make your parameters dynamic using the "Enable dynamic parameters" feature. Optionally, you can then check another checkbox "Use change params template" which will show a form above your result where you can change the parameters on the page. The page will then be reloaded with the appropriate GET parameters. If you have a custom template, and you want to include the "change params template" on your own, you can call this in your template:

Sorry for the late answer. Of course PocketQuery supports dynamic parameters. the plugin documentation http://www.scandio.de/en/atlassian/plugins-en/pocketquery-en/pocketquery-documentation/ explains as follows.
(since version 1.11)
If you want to parametrize a PocketQuery macro dynamically when the page is loaded, you can make use of the “Enable dynamic parameters” feature. To enable this feature for a specific macro, check the “Enable dynamic parameters” checkbox in the macro parameters. This will also dynamically toggle another checkbox that enables to include a form in the template for changing the parameter values in the UI.
Dynamic parameters are passed as GET parameters to the page URL. For example, if you have a macro for a query with two query parameters “min” and “max”, you can open your page like this: [your-confluence-page-url]?pq_min=10&pq_max=50. All parameters must be prefixed with “pq_” to avoid naming collisions. Note that GET-Parameters precede the values you specified in the macro.
