How to create macro?

I want to create Macro.


I've read this article but I can't find 'User Macros' section at General Configuration even though I'm an administrator of confluence.


Please let me know how to do

@beck you have hit on one of what I think are the three top shortcommings in the Cloud versus server version. They are in order:

  1. No custom domain names (been a request open for the for 10+ years)
  2. No custom CSS
  3. No user macros

Until Atlassian addresses these issues, I cannot see how any of my clients can move to the Cloud version.

Good luck!

Hi @beck What Ollie as mentioned is correct. User macros allow HTML and JavaScript to run in Confluence Cloud, which can affect performance so its restricted by Atlassian.
