How do I add jason snippet in confluence pages

While editing a page in confluence. I wanted to add some json snippet.

When I click "more content" from top tool bar the "+" button. I search for code macro, I get many language like c++/java/c/python etc, but nothing for JSON and XML.


Am I missing anything here ?

JSON is really just JavaScript (JavaScript Object Notation). Personally, I would use that .

Also, you should have an option for HTML and XML.

I actually tried all languages before posting this question. I don't see even with Javascript, presentation is nothing close to what I get in Jira with code inside "{code:json}" tag.

Hi Sandip,

the Code Macro supports adding further languages as SyntaxHighlighter brushes, so you could try to find a brush file and import it into Confluence:

Note that this only works for Confluence Server, if you're using Confluence Cloud, then I would recommend installing the Better Code Macro.
