Confluence table sticky headers have some conditions when this feature does not work. Also it can freeze only the first row.
Also, the first bullet in below post made me think because my table is on a page it wont scroll with sticky header.
Hence I tried to attach the "table filter and charts" macro but that option won't show up somehow.
If you click the Heading row button it will toggle header row functionality for your table. Make sure your cursor is in the table when you're editing the page and you'll see another row of buttons at the top:
The first row of your table will then freeze when scrolling, and will inherit other header row functionality (like sorting) as well.
EDIT: this functionality might come from the Table Filter macro, which we have installed on our instance of Confluence Server. Do you see this on your page?
I see the tool bar, but nothing happens when I select/deselect the toggle switch. Is it because the table is embedded on a web page? Also I have 2 top rows that act as header that I need to freeze. The first one has some merged cells, so as to club columns together. Could that be causing the issue?
This might help, will be interested to hear yes or no.
I went to the Heading Row button as suggested by Jared - it was on by default. So I switched it off, published, switched it back on again, published again, and bingo the header sticks!
I was having a lot of trouble with this - and this is what I found:
If you have a table within a Section (Layout Section), or within a Macro (like the Expand Macro), then the Header will not stick.
If you have a table just on the page, and the table has a Header, then it will stick. My co-worker told me that this is a known bug that was first reported in 2017 - that they have not fixed yet
Try putting your table just on the main page (not within a Section, or a Macro), and I bet it will work for you.
If you are ok paying for it, the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence by StiltSoft app looks pretty good. (This app was also recommended by another user on this page already)
