How to remove unnecessary occurences of unsupported-wiki-markup macro?

During the upgrade of Confluence to version 4 all the content will be migrated to a new storage format. As this might fail for some content there is a fallback: Snippets of wiki markup that can not be migrated will be wrapped in a macro called unsupported-wiki-markup. There might be different causes for the migration to fail, like a deactivated macro or a macro with a body that can not be migrated. However, some of those problems might be fixed later (e.g. by reactivating or upgrading the plugin). So afterwards the unsupported-wiki-markup macro might not be needed anymore.

Will this be detected somehow by the system? E.g. when a page is stored.

Alternatively, is there a way to rerun the migration process for the whole Confluence instance so that unnecessary occurences of an unsupported-wiki-markup macro are removed?

Yes - See Wiki Markup to XHTML Migration > Re-running Migration in our Planning for Confluence 4.0 documentation.

Thanks a lot Matt for pointing this out. Must have overseen this in the dokumentation.
