How to create sub/excerpt tables from a larger Confluence table

I have an enourmous table in Confluence, native to Confluence at the moment.


The table consists of information similar to this. (I hope this table displays moderately well)

Item            / Responsible Team               / Status

Headlights / Plastics, Electronics, Design / Ready for testing

Car seats   /  Design, Interior, Fabrics      /  [JIRA X-01] bug found, testing blocked



I want to be able to filter this table based on the teams. Since multiple teams are in 1 column, I am wondering if it is possible to create a table that pulls from this one and just lists everything related to Design, or everything related to Plastics. I'm willing to change the team names from plain text to some kind of pointer, if it helps.


Is this possible?

Hello Clarissa,

You can insert this table using Page Include macro or Excerpt and Excerpt Include macros into another page, wrap Include macro with Table Filter macro, set filters and hide filtration pane if needed.

Hello Andrey,

I would like to try this method too, but i get an error:

"Error while generating placeholder. Is the server available?"

I use Excerpt Include for the table, but it don't want to work.

Hello Steven,

Did you use Excerpt macro on the source page? Excerpt Include macro works in pair with Excerpt macro.

Yes, i found the solution.

I have to set first the Table Filter and set the Excerpt Include macro inside it.
