How do I make a status appear in a page properties report?

I used the advice and images in the community post "Manual Test case management with Confluence" to create a manual test case template (see below image). Like the example shown in the linked community post, I created a table inside a page property macro and, within the table, I use a status macro to show the result of the test case.

I encountered no issues using my template and filling-in the page property table. However, when I try to draw some of the fields from the table into a page property report, the status I have selected does not appear in the report (see below image).

For the above entry, a "Fail" status (see below image) should be appearing.

In the "Manual Test..." community post linked above, the example images (see below image) show that it is possible for a status to appear within a page property report.

Does anyone have any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong or advice on how to remedy this issue?

Hi Maggie,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community! It's nice to have you join us. I know that should work because I worked on some cases over the past month where I had to test that.

I'm curious about whether the width of the columns might cause the status macro not to display. Can you create a page properties macro with shorter text and see if the status macro works?

Secondly, can you tell me which editor the pages use? See if both the page properties page and the report pages are on the same editor. You can tell if a page is using the legacy editor because when you're editing the page, it will ask you if you want to convert to the new editor.

I hope to hear from you soon!


Hi Shannon,

Thanks so much for lending your support!

I tried shortening the text displayed in the columns (and using a larger screen so the window was larger and the columns could spread out more)--sadly, that didn't work.

The page properties page and the report pages appear the same, so I'm assuming they are using the same editor.

I do not see a prompt to "convert to the new editor," so it seems that they're both utilizing the newer version of the editor.

Do you have any other ideas what might be going wrong?

Thank you,


Hi Maggie,

Is the page properties macro nested inside another macro? I've seen that cause issues in the past.

If that's not it, we'd need to create a support ticket for you so we can take a look at your site. Your admin has to approve access, so I would need to copy them on the ticket.

If you want to proceed with that, can you have them follow up here to get that started for you? 

Thank you!


Hi again Shannon,

The page properties macro is not nested inside another macro.

I'd very much appreciate if you could create a support ticket and have your team take a closer look! I'm reaching out to my admin--I'll have her follow-up here.

Thank you!!
