Is it not possible to view changes made inside macros, in the confluence page history ?

I m trying to use macros on pages for example Text inpup and I m using the macro "Text Data". When changes are made to the content of macro, the changes are not viewable in change history of the page.

Is this just the way it is and will be ? Or is there að way to continue using these macros and see the changes made to the content in the change history of the page ?

Thanks Steve for your answer.

This is not my macro, this is a standard macro in Confluence.

The thing is that I use Edit Content to change the text in these macros not Edit, which is used to change text in the body of a confluence page. Edit content is for the macros.

If I then go into "view history" for the page no changes are shown in the macro (no text changes).

I need to be able to see all changes made to that page, regardless of how the data is stored (macro or not). I have no idea how the data is stored on the database side and if or how I can manage that.

Normal user should be able to write a text into a macro (when creating a page) and not worry about if the changes are viewable in the page history or not.

About which macro are we talking?

It s called "Text Data". Generates a text field.

Ok, so we are talking about the scaffolding plugin ;)

I would suggest talking with the guys from servcerocket would be best?

OK, thanks alot Steve, will do :)

It depends how your macro stores the data, if you wirte it in the body of the macro, it will be viewable in page history. If you store it a different way, you have to take care, that each time you change something a new version of the apge is created AND that your data is always stored for a specific version of your page, than you can achieve your goal.
