How to get the creator of a page without admin rights?



I've searched a lot - it looks like a lot of people want to show the name of the creator of a page in a special place on the page. The solutions that I have found only work by writing my own macro, for which I need admin rights, which of course, I do not have as a normal user.

Is there a solution instead of entering @User manually?

Hi @Jens 

The creator of the page is always shown direct underneath the title:


Or why do you want to get the creator? Can't you contact the confluence admin for creating this easy user macro?

Hi Dominic,

thanks for your reply.
In our Integrated Management System (IMS) we've some document clearings at the bottom. I want to have all the relevant information at one place in one table. The creator belongs to that and I don't want the reader to scroll up and down to get the information he wants.

Our admin will not creating this macro. As often, it is a difficult subject to get something from an admin that he himself does not see the need and that makes him work...

I found an interessting macro: 

Is this a possible solution for you?

Hello Dominic,

thanks for your help.

I'm not quite sure how it should work - there's no option for me to configure a parameter in the cheese macro.

Hi Jens

You don't have to use the cheese macro. The cheese macro is only an example on this page. Atlassian uses the cheese macro on every macro documentation page :) 

You have to use the "contributors macro".

Upps! I was to stupid . I was looking for the macro but overlooked it.... ;)

I will check it - thanks for the tip!
