Excerpt Include Parent Page

Hello Community,

maybe you can help me out.

I need to select parent page as a value on the excerpt include macro.

I have a lot of pages that contains content, which will change from time to time. I have a create from template macro on all of these pages. The idea is that the new generated child page will pick up a part of the content from the parent page. For this to work, I need to select the value "parent page" in the confluence template that I created.

All I need is the exact same macro, just with this additional one option.

Is there a way to select parent page on the existing macro or do I need to create a user macro. If so, can someone help me with this. Can I somehow extract the macro code from "excerpt include"?


Kind regards

Figured it out - if you need it you can copy past it. :)

#set($parentId = $pageManager.getPage($
#set ($requestedPage = $pageManager.getPage($parentId).getTitle())

#if ($parentId)

<ac:macro ac:name="excerpt-include" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="nopanel">true</ac:parameter>


Cannot show tasks on parent page because this page has no parent.
