Search for pages with JIRA Issues macro

Hi guys,

Do you know if it is possible to search for pages that contain the JIRA issues macro?

We have Confluence 5.1.1 connected by an application link to JIRA 5.2.6. We changed the JIRA Base URL, and updated the application link. But still, the JIRA issues macro in Confluence uses the old URL which leads to errors in the pages. We are now editing the URLs in the macros but that would be easier if we had a list of the affected pages.

Thanks a lot

Atlassian support answered that the plugin had been renamed. Search for macroName:jira does work but is returns pages with the jira-issue macro as well as pages with jira-issues macro. In our case this wasn't too bad because we didn t have too much pages. We flipped through them and repaired the links manually. But if you have many affected pages, this would be very uncomfortable and time consuming.

From about Confluence 4-ish, you can use macroName: jira-issues in the search bar to get the list of pages.

Unfortunately, I can't think of a way to exclude the pages you've already corrected :-(

Thanks Nic, I tried but unfortunately it doesn't work. For instance macroName:excerpt-include* does work, but macroName:jira-issues does not.
