Hi Art,

We're taking a look to see if we can identify the issue. We haven't been able to reproduce it yet so I'll jump onto email with you to get more information so we can help resolve it.

I put a support ticket into Attlassian and asked to add you guys to it.





OK so after ~ 30 mins its working again. Very strange.

We've just added some extra logging on our side so if a macro does fail to load again we'll have more information to diagnose why.


I'm also encountering the same problem. In my case it says:

There were errors rendering macro:

  • Unknown error. Status is 401

on all pages where this macro is used. Please let me know how this issue can be addressed.


Hi Mia, there's a bug with Confluence Cloud that Atlassian is currently investigating that causes cloud add-ons to not display.

Unfortunately there isn't much we can do but wait for Atlassian to resolve the issue. If you like you can subscribe to updates at the link above.

Please raise an issue with

Tim, it has been totally unreliable this last few days,. Most of the time it works but then we get the errors which might last for 30 mins or so  and then it fixes itself. Is it something with your server or ? We have not had any issues with your plugin until now,. It is a very useful plugin and we use the macros a lot  so getting to the bottom of this is urgent for us.





We haven't found any issues on our end as of yet – all appears stable. I just sent you another email: if you can email back any screenshots and specific pages that were having an issue it will help us pinpoint what's causing it.

We'll do everything we can to resolve this quickly.
