Is it possible to change the backgroundcolor of a section and/or column macro?

I would like to redefine the background colour of sections or columns on my page. For the panel macro I can do it with the following paramter: <ac:parameter ac:name="bgColor">lightblue</ac:parameter> how can I use this or what permissions do I need to do this for section or column?

Hi @Elena Hassler 


By using panel macros we can add colors to a particular section in a confluence page in cloud environment, I am not sure whether these are available in server/Data center versions.

Hi Elena, 

It looks like you are new here, please allow me to welcome you here into our community. We hope that you feel right at home here


Currently, there is no way to change the section color. However, we have a workaround.


  1. Create a Section
  2. Insert {backgroup color} macro( It will be autocompleted when you type { )
  3. Insert Content
  4. Save/update page

Hi @kennyngkk 

Thank you for your answer, seems the macro has been renamed to Info panel in the cloud environment. But your answer is helped to resolve my issue.
