I am trying to create a global report with a lot of dynamic information from multiple people. The problem I am running into is that I need to pull portions of pages from multiple confluence pages. I know I can pull in a specific page, and I know I can pull in an except. The problem is that I need to define and pull in portions of pages from all over the place (meaning pages all throughout confluence). Anyone know how I can do this?
Why wouldn't just using excerpt-include work in your case? You just put the portion of text that you need from each page in an excerpt and then just pull them all in that global report page.
Now that I think of it ... another thought would be the meta-data add-on. You can get "multi-excerpt like" functionality for free. However, it only supports plain text with in the body of the meta-data macro. So, no tables or fancy macros. But if you only need text then free is a good price. https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/org.andya.confluence.plugins.metadata
Sounds like the multi-excerpt is one piece I need to look at. Can the include content by label pull in only portions of a page? Or does it pull in the whole page itself?
You can also do the equivalent using the metadata plugin, which I believe is still free (although it is unsupported, and I think you need to use wiki format for the text in the macro).
Another approach is to use Table Excerpt and Table Excerpt Include macros (Table Filter and Chartsapp) that can be used for multi-excerption within multiple pages and spaces searched by page names, page trees and labels. So it allows you to have multiple excerpts within a single page as well as to pull multiple excerpts from multiple pages using a single Table Excerpt Include macro.
I have admin level access for the cloud platform and cannot find a solution here. MultiExcerpt is not integrating and nothing else in this thread is working either. Any suggestions?
I am looking to use it for more than just text.
