our developers have created many macros for formatting etc. when working with confluence. However all of a sudden, the macros don't get displayed any more. When you click the "other macros" button, only the few standard macros from confluence are displayed.
Has anyone experienced the same problem? Any ideas how to fix it?
Thanks in advance!
Hey Paul, thanks for the quick answer! I'll do my best to answer your questions: - We're hosting Confluence on our own server, - We're using self-created macros, but as I said, they don't get displayed any more. I've created a "test macro" and when I try to edit a Confluence article, they simply don't show up in the macros list. It seems like they don't exist at all. - Which plugins / modules have to be installed for the macros to run smooth? - Regarding your questions if I changed anything: I'll have to ask my colleagues, because I just found out that the problem exists longer, than I'm in this company. Grrr, I LOVE reverse engineering. ;)
As I understand you made User Macros: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Writing+User+Macros right? Or did you write your own plugin and added macros there? I am not quite sure which plugins have to be installed to make these macros work. - Which Confluence Version do you currently use? - Do you know when the macros worked last? Has there been a confluence update after? You could try to install a marketplace macro plugin like this: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.comalatech.checklists and see if this works. Maybe this will give yo a hint, what is wrong.
Okay, three steps back!
The missing macros aren't user macros, they are, in fact, addons. I got this fact yesterday after I finally was able to talk to one of our developers (they are using the macros), but apparently I can only write three posts per day and thread. So sorry for the false information!
The addons (for example Gliffy) are still installed and most of them are up to date. I've updated the addon handler but that didn't help. The addons still don't get displayed when working on a Confluence article (regardless if they're up to date or not).
There may has been an update prior to the missing of the addons. Unfortunately, this error exists since long before I started working at this company. I can't really tell when the last update was and which version we used before. But I think version incompatibility doesn't explain why I can't see ANY addons. Sure, some could become incompitable, but ALL of them? ;)
metadata.jpgHey, sorry for the delayed answer. I think I've found the solution: The addon "Default Macro Metadata Provider" is deactivated. Unfortunately, there's a message saying that the addon can't be activated due one or severals errors. It doesn't tell me, which errors that are, though.
I've attached a scrennshot (in german, unfortunately). Any ideas on how I can activate the addon respectively the modules of the addon?
