Enabling the HTML Macro


I have followed the instructions in this article


But when i search for "HTML"  this macro is not found.  I am logged in as the Confluence Admin.



Could you please advise.

Cloud does not support that macro (it can easily become a security risk)

As Nic says, the HTML macro is not enabled for Confluence Cloud as it could be used for malicious purposes.

The full list of functionality that is restricted in Confluence Cloud is here.

Nic is correct, however, there is the HTML Macro for Confluence Cloud in the Atlassian Marketplace: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/biz.artemissoftware.confluence.html.HtmlMacro/cloud/overview

You could give that a try. In general, whenever you find yourself wanting extra features on top of Atlassian products is usually pays to check the Marketplace.

Hi Lamar,

We have a secured HTML macro as part of our Macro for Toolbox Cloud add-on. It's completely sandboxed so you can embed content and also keep your team secure – perfect for Confluence Cloud.
