How do I show all metadata for a particular page, without having to give the keys of the metadata?

In Confluence 3.x, how do I show all metadata for a particular page, without having to give the keys of the metadata?

I want to know what metadata exists on a given page

https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/display/META/Metadata+plugin+version+1+documentation#Metadatapluginversion1documentation-metadatareportmacro doesn't help because it requires keys.

Thanks, M.

It turns out that the undocumented {metadata-values:pagename} provides this.

You do have to supply a page name, but using @self returns values for this page.

i.e.

{metadata-values:@self}

How can I get this going in confluence 4.x ? (I know "insert wiki-markup" but the macro is unknown)

which plugin did you install for this?

Thanks ;-)

Well, that's interesting, because https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugin/matrix/5295 says that this plugin doesn't work/isn't supported in 4.x. I assume you downloaded the jar and installed it manually? It won't show in the UPM.

see here:

https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/36730/confluence-4-x-need-4-x-compatible-metadata-plugin-who-can-compile-me-a-jar-from-branch

It SHOULD work in "Wiki-Markup-compatible-mode" (does not figure in Macro browser) which would be enough for me. But I get an error in the logs on every edit...

(but as it works well internally at Atlassian, the have perhaps a patched version somehow... I'll hope to get this version soon :)
