Hi, Sarah wrote a blog on this earlier - It's a good read.

In particular, in Confluence 4.x you can do macroName:include* to search for all pages with the include macro.

Hello Harry

Thanks for the response.

Is there anything similar for 3.4.9?



Hi, for older versions of Confluence we have been using It's a bit slow but quite detailed.

This one is also good for older versions:

Although called "search and replace", it can be used just to search in wiki markup.

Hallo Abe

The solution described in the blog post for 3.5 should work for 3.4.9 too, See near the bottom of the post:

In short: You can use the normal search, and enter the curly brackets and the macro name surrounded by double quotation marks, like this:


I hope this helps!

Cheers, Sarah


For 3.4.9 errored out for me.

Regarding "{macroname" search

Let us say I am searching for macro "{page" used by Documentation theme. It came back with several hits. I opened 1 of the pages and it just had the string "page" (without double quotes) on it. I clicked on edit button and expected to see macro {page} but no macro usage tag was present.

I am wondering if this search is correct?

or did I understood it wrong.

Please let me know.




In addition to Sarah's recommendation, I created a simple query that should show you which pages are using an specific macro:

select spaces.spacekey, content.contenttype, content.title, content.contentid, bodycontent.body 
	from bodycontent, spaces, content 
		where spaces.spaceid = content.spaceid and content.contentid = bodycontent.contentid
			and bodycontent.body like '%Macro%'

Hope it helps.
