Here is a user macro that I have created for this. Just put it on a page and it should give you a report of all of the macros and user macros that are being used in your instance. This requires at least Confluence 5.5 as the MacroBrowserManager.getMacroSummaries() method was added in 5.5.

Just on page or need use plugin? If ust on page - does not work this method.

Correct, pasting the above code on a page won't do anything. You need to create a user macro from the above code. You can create user macros in Confluence Admin --> User Macros. One you have created the user macro. Then on a confluence page you would simply add the macro to the page.

We use PocketQuery plugin for SQL query

And in SQL table query

Hi Viktar,

did you check that plugin: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.confluence-macro-indexer-plugin ? It should work for Confluence 4.0 - 4.3.7.

Regards,
Norbert
