How to display the workspace Key on a page?

I need to display on a page the key of the workspace the page belongs to. When moving the page to another workspace, it should automatically display the key of that new workspace.

In a Confiforms environment I would use [entry._page.spaceKey], but I want to avoid using confiforms just for this.

How can I achieve this without using Confiforms?

Have you considered creating a simple user macro to do that?

Hi Alex,

you seem to be active everywhere ;-), we just discussed about confiforms...

No, I didn't consider a user macro; I don't have access to user macros as I'm not a site admin.

I hoped there is a solution that can be implemented directly on pages. Our IT department is a bit reluctant on supporting user macros.

Do you have HTML macro enabled in your Confluence instance?

OK, got it. that works!

Sample code, where Key is displayed when a button is pressed - if anyone else is having the same issue and is not so familiar with scripting of html pages...

<script type="text/javascript"> 
function showMessage(msg) {
AJS.$('#spaceKey').html('Workspace key is: <strong>'+msg+'</strong>');

<button class="aui-button submit" type="button" onclick="showMessage(AJS.params.spaceKey)">Show Key</button>
<br />
<div id="spaceKey"></div>
