How can I make the taskreport reference to <current page>

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Task Report Macro

How can I restrict the task report to summazire only those tasks, listed on the same page as the macro is - when I do not know the pagename yet - e.g. for templates or code snippets.

With other macros, there is a placeholder "@self" or "@localspace" available.

Here is what I would do. You will need the Confluence Source Editor. It is free and made by Atlassian. First add a task report macro to your page and set it up the way you want without the page ... we'll get to that in a sec.

Then open up the source of the page(top right corner of the editor) to grab the storage format for the macro.

Select the macro storage format and copy it. The highlighted part in the above image is the page parameter and we are going to create a user macro that will implement the built-in task report macro but will dynamically swap out the page parameter.

Go to Confluence Admin -> User Macros and create a new one. The below user macro definition is based on what you see above. If you want more of the report macro parameters set a certain way then do that before you copy the storage format for creating your user macro ... again we are just going to switch out that one "pages" parameter.

&lt;ac:structured-macro ac:name="tasks-report-macro"&gt;
    &lt;ac:parameter ac:name="pages"&gt;$content.id&lt;/ac:parameter&gt;
    &lt;ac:parameter ac:name="labels"&gt;Stuff&lt;/ac:parameter&gt;
&lt;/ac:structured-macro&gt;

 

You now have a macro that you can drop into your templates.

Sounds cool - and thanks for your effort to make it a tutorial smile
