Search for "unknown macro" errors Edited

Our confluence system will be migrated to another instance soon. I've been asked to test my pages on a test-system. There some plugins seem not to be installed. On my pages (using those not installed macros) that is indicated by "unknown macro: '<macroname>'".

As there are hundreds of pages I would like to automate my search and get the pages containing this error displayed directly.


Con you help me?

You can't search for "unknown macro", as there's nothing to search for.  The display of "unknown macro" really is just a display meaning "you've removed the macro functions so I don't know what to do with this directive"

You will need to open up the source view of a page showing this error, find the bit naming the macro and then search for that.  That still may not work, you usually have to have the plugin that provided it installed (even if it's unlicenced), or you can cheat a little and create a user macro with that name.  You'll then be able to search for it.
