We have templates set up that use the standard /Content by Label Macro, a few times on each page. Most of the filters in the template are static, but depending on the topic of the page we have to go into each Macro and change one of the filters to make it relevant to the page. My objective here is to be able to change one constant on the page and have all the macros pick it up as a parameter.
Does that make sense?
Not sure I agree that the only way to solve this challenge is with a User Macro, as enabling the passing of a parameter to an inbuilt-macro could achieve what I am looking for.
I am new to Confluence, and only have experience with the Cloud solution, so I am not familiar with User Macros. It wouldn't want to have to create and maintain our own macro to do everything the inbuilt one does, just adding this feature.
Many ways to skin this cat, but my objective is to reduce the effort associated with creating and maintaining pages.
Well the issue is that if you want to do something server side, it depends on the storage data of the page. And the only two ways I know to do that is with user macros and plugins/apps.

You and I are obviously repressed techies, and are solutioning. Maybe we need to go back to my requirement, which is really about minimising the effort to set up and maintain pages created from a template, where the template has a number of macros pulling content from other pages on the wiki. Based on the topic of the page, filters in each macro needs to be modified so content relevant to the page is pulled.
Sounds like Confluence Cloud doesn't have a solution for this at the moment - would be wonderful if it was considered as a value-add enhancement.
Yes, the Cloud version is very restrictive when it comes to this sort of customization, plus they may push out an update that breaks what you have set up. This is why I recommend the server version (but they are forcing customer to the much more expensive Data Center).
Hi Community! We're thrilled to share that Team Calendars for Confluence is now a built-in feature for Confluence Data Center releases 7.11 and beyond. A long time favorite, Team Cale...
