Possible to schedule "Update content with incompatible upgraded macros" task?

I've just upgraded to Confluence 4.1.10 from 3.5.16 and would like to advise space admins to fix broken macros.

Is there a way I can schedule the "Update content with incompatible upgraded macros" task to run every ten minutes? I'd like to inform them that the new rich text editor will become available for any content they fix within 10 minutes of removing broken macro references.

Hello Sam,

Natively in Confluence this is not possible, being honest with you maybe developing some kind of customization you can achieve this goal. And to perform this the best option would be to obtain a help from an Atlassian Expert, you can make a contact with them by the following:


I hope this helps.

Best Regards,


Thanks for your response, seems like too much effort if the functionality doesn't exist out of the box.

I've just asked the space admins to email me as and when they fix the macro errors and I'll click the button manually. There are only about 20 space admins impacted and of those I don't expect many will actually respond.
