How do I enable HTML Macro?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: HTML Macro

I am the Admin for our site, and I went looking for this macro per the "Enabling the HTML Macro" instructions and could not find it. Is it no longer available?

Hi Phil,

The HTML macro that was available for server isn't available on cloud.

However we've built a secure HTML macro as part of the Macro for Toolbox Cloud add-on which will let you embed HTML content into a page. Hope that helps!

@Tim Clipsham,

Thanks for the pointer. What exactly makes your macro secure in a way that the unavailable Confluence one isn't?

No worries. The original server macro embeds the content directly into the page itself but our add-on sandboxes your content inside an iframe. We have some more specifics under "Security" in our documentation.

For security reasons, the built-in HTML macro is not allowed to be enabled on Atlassian Cloud instances. This is a good thing because it makes your Atlassian Cloud Confluence safer.

However, that does not mean that you can't have a HTML Macro. Instead, to get a HTML Macro back you merely install an add-on from the marketplace that will provide it for you. Here is one for example:
