How to insert JIRA-Issue-Link as MACRO via API into Confluence-Page?

Hi Folks!

I'm doing Confluence-Page synthesizing via VBA.

Now I need to insert JIRA-Tickets into the page. When I just insert the URL into the HTML-Source-Code, the page ends up with displaying the URL instead of converting it to the nice JIRA-Macro. No matter if just the plain url or inside an <a>-Tag...

When I insert the same URL via copy & paste into a page the conversion is done on the fly (so it's not a base-url-issue...).

Can anyone give me a hint how to synthesize my page including JIRA-Macros?

Best regards & greetings from Germany
