Get macro output via REST API

I have a confluence page that has a macro that runs an SQL query. The query outputs a table with the results when the page is rendered in a browser.

However, if I fetch: .../confluence/rest/api/content/128437000?

It just returns the macro body (e.g., the SQL)--the macro is not executed.

How can I execute a macro via the API and get the macro output? Also, is there a way to get the output in json or csv instead of an HTML table?

Thanks in advance!

same question, i use pocketquery and whant to get the result over rest.


i already tried :


get the macroid over :

get version as field number under lastupdated:

In my case i get a answer but the result is not in!

While I wouldn't consider this an officially supported feature, you could probably use the "load dynamically" REST endpoint of PocketQuery to execute a Query. This however will also only give you the HTML.

We'd love to hear what your exact use case is! Could you maybe raise a ticket at our PocketQuery ServiceDesk and tell us more about it? (e.g. in what format would you expect the response, what users would need to use this endpoint, i.e. would it be okay if this was restricted to Confluence/PocketQuery admins, etc.)


Ok thanks, i will rise a ticket

Hi, I have a similar issue but in my case the macro to Expand is a Page property summary. I resolved invoking the content endpoint and asking to it to expands the body.export_view.

eg: .../wiki/rest/api/content/138772481?status=draft&expand=body.export_view

It returns an html with the result of executed macro.

I hope this can help.

I don't have a solution, but i am also interested if there is any, because i have the same problem.
