Include last modified date and user in Page Properties Report

Is there a way, or a workaround, that will allow me to include the following two items in the Page Properties Report macro?

  • Last Date Modified - The last date when the page was modified
  • Last User to Modify - The name of the last user who modified the content

I realize they could manually type it into the page properties, but that just isn't feasible when the information is already on the page. Can this be pulled in?

Well, I just went ahead and created my own user macros to solve the problem. For anyone interested, the two macros below do nothing more than display the date and the name of the user who last modified the page on which the macro has been placed.

Last Date Modified


Last User Modified


Unfortunately, the above didn't work quite as planned. The macro is placed in the page properties macro, but when it is pulled into another page using the Page Properties Report macro, my macro above is pulling in that page's last mod user and date rather than the page on which it was placed.

Any ideas?

It's been a long time, but after an update to Confluence 5.5, the above now works.

How do I put/apply those your macros into my confluence page?


Thank you.  I'd love to know how to implement this as well...

Linh and Katie,

You have to write/create these macros via the macro editor in the system administrator UI.

For instance:


## Macro title: My Macro
## Macro has a body: N
## Body processing: Selected body processing option
## Output: Selected output option
## Developed by: My Name
## Date created: dd/mm/yyyy
## Installed by: My Name
## This is an example macro

@chad barnes Could you share the exact macro info for the last modified date?  I tried using the user macro, but was unsuccessful.

  • Visibility: Visible to all
  • Categories: Confluence content
  • Body processing: No macro body
  • Template: (use the code above)

Really, the only two important things are the "No macro body" and the code I provided.

Also, realize that after saving the macro it will take a little time (few seconds) for it to appear in the macro browser. And, you may have to refresh the whole page and re-enter the page editor to get the updated macro browser.


Does anyone know if there is a way to do this in Confluence Cloud?

Hi Agatha... If you have it available try inserting a Report Info macro and enter the following in the key field: content:modification date.

In the format field you can play with the way that date is displayed.

I hope it works for you!
