The Chart Macro requires that you provide it data in the form of a table.

Could you show us what your table looks like? It seems that Confluence isn't able to extract data from that table.



I would love to see a screen shot and maybe even an example of a working chart macro during its creation. I copied the chart data from one of the chart wiki pages, but fail to get past the no data available stage. 

Hi Markus,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to meet you.

I've been able to create a working Chart Macro using the examples from the the Chart Macro documentation. Could you show me the table that you copied in your Confluence page so I can determine why it might be showing no data available? Please also share the parameters of the Chart Macro you're attempting to insert.

Thank you,


Hi there,  I finally managed to get a pie chart with following table.

Am I right in assuming, that this is not going to work with this table?

Thanks very much for help and kind regards, Monika


Hi Monika,

I'm sorry for the delay, as I've been out.

I tested your initial table, and it just looks like you'll need to adjust your parameters if you want to read from a table like that. For example, here's how your chart looks on my page as a graph.

If I add the use of the Columns parameter, I can get the data to display in a table like this:

You can see here that I am telling Confluence that columns 1, 2, and 3 will contain the data I need to display. Note that I changed some other parameters to clean up the look a bit.

Can you try that and see if it helps you to display your tables how you had them?

Take care,


Hi Shannon, Thank you very much for the explanation, which made it very easy!
It helped me a lot - especially to better understand the selectable parameters.

Stay safe, cheers, Monika
