The answer to that depends on where you are starting from!  Imagine asking someone "how do I get to London?".  When they don't know where you are now.

Where is your code running basically?  A script?  A user macro?  A search result function? An add-on that's adding some form of interface (like the admin fuctions)?  Another way to ask that is "in what context"?

To the macro Java code:

<macro name='grid-user-timesheet' class='${project.groupId}.GridEditorUserMain' key='agile-application-stack-user'>
        <description>Creates a editable Timesheet to Confluence Page.</description>
        <resource type="velocity" name="help" location="templates/extra/editor/grideditoruser-help.vm">
            <param name="help-section" value="advanced"/>


So, this is an add-on for Confluence that provides a macro?

From memory, there should be a "context" variable, which gets an id via

Yes this is an Add-on for Confluence.

That looks right to me.  Not tested it, but it should do it.

Hi Matti,

did you figure this one out? I have the same challenge, getting the page ID in a plugin macro. How can I retrieve it in the Java class file?

Best regards,

Edit: Sorry, this should have been a reply to the first answer.

Here is how I was able to resolve this:

import com.atlassian.confluence.core.ContentEntityObject;
import com.atlassian.confluence.content.render.xhtml.ConversionContext;

public class MyClass (...
public String execute(...
ContentEntityObject contentEntityObject = conversionContext.getEntity();
System.out.println("pageId : " + contentEntityObject.getId());
