The roadmap macro is broken.

The roadmap macro is not working. 

When I go to insert the macro the "Publish" button is disabled, and the macro is never added to the page, it does not get saved, it does nothing.

there is little to no real documentation out there that walks you through HOW to do this. 

Please fix it so I can use it

I have also problems with Roadmap Macro. After hard work of creating a great number of new lanes and bars it's disappointing that after clicking Insert, there's no warning but also no Roadmap diagram - absolutely nothing, like nothing was ever there. Very frustrating to start over, since of course there's no way to get back. Now, I click insert after adding few lanes and then publish and then go back to continue. Slow process. 

Did this ever get fixed I've just gone to create a Roadmap 20 lanes etc and i get the error wont let me insert


have i got to do it in small increments

I tested the Roadmap Planner macro in Confluence server version 6.4.3 and on Confluence Cloud. I was able to insert the macro by pressing the insert button, then the Publish button was no longer greyed out.

  • Are you on a self hosted version or using our Cloud offering? If you are using a self hosted instance, please let me know what version.
  • Please attach a screen shot of what you are seeing when you try to insert the macro, maybe I can spot something amiss.

We're also getting a new error as of last night:

Error rendering macro 'roadmap' : org/apache/batik/w3c/dom/ElementTraversal

We are getting this error message also. Anyone find a resolution?

We are also having this problem.

Have raised a support ticket with Atlassian. Will update once I have a response.

Just to be clear, we're using the cloud solution.

Atlassian are aware and apparently working on the issue. Here's the report for people to watch and vote on:

Trying to use templates in Confluence and got the exact same error:

Error rendering macro 'roadmap' : org/apache/batik/w3c/dom/ElementTraversal

Glad I'm not the only one and I found this thread.

As of September 2020, this macro still appears to be broken in the cloud version of Confluence.


I will try to publish "early and often" to see if I can avoid the problem, otherwise I'm going to drop the roadmap macro altogether and find some other software solution.
