Insert a macro with cli following another macro


it is possible to insert a macro into a page with the confluence command line interface.

(e.g. confluence --action modifyPage --id "216597104" --content "<ac:macro ac:name=""unmigrated-inline-wiki-markup""><ac:plain-text-body><![CDATA[{wiki:param1=xxxxx}bodyText{wiki}]]></ac:plain-text-body></ac:macro>" --noConvert )

But: --content or --content2 puts the content at the end or at the beginning of a page, but I want it to be following another macro, that is somewhere in the midst of the page.

I ve already tried using findReplace, which drives me mad with the special characters, and it doesn t work yet.

Any other ideas?

Write a small script that does the following:

  1. Run getPageSource
  2. Modify the source according to your specific needs
  3. Then storePage

Thanks Bob for your quick answer and suggestion.

Hi @Bob Swift [Bob Swift Atlassian Add-ons], is this possible to do it for a result of runfronlist or getcontentlist? 

Yes, but only if there is no manual intervention required - that means being able to do it generically with *modifyPage*.

Yeah it's what i'm trying to do, but i need to add at the end some rows (around 10) corresponding to storage format of 2 different macro (checklist and pageinclude)

Thanks, i figured out, i was missing the "--noConvert" parameter

@Bob Swift [Bob Swift Atlassian Add-ons]  problem with quote annidation... 


--action runFromContentList --cql "type=page and label=mylabel"  --common ' --action modifyPage  --id "@pageId@" --content2 "<p> <ac:structured-macro ac:name=~include~> <ac:parameter ac:name=~~> <ac:link> <ri:page ri:content-title=~_ page to be included~ ri:space-key=~KB~/> </ac:link> </ac:parameter> </ac:structured-macro></p>" --noConvert --minor --special " #  ~" '



without the runfromcontentlist it works, but when i put it together it doesn't
