Unrecognized Macro (choose-label) within a User Macro

We've written a user macro in Confluence which shows a list of labels we want the user to seelct from.  We just recently upgrade from Confluence 5.10.7 to 6.4.1 and the the user macro "vendorpicker" is showing "Unknown macro: {choose-label}".   I can edit the page and add the choose-label successfully and works just fine.  Anyone have an idea on why it won't recognize it now.

  • User Macro Configurations
  • Macro Name = vendorpicker
  • Visibility = Visible to all user in the Macro Browser
  • Macro Title = vendorpicker
  • Categories = Confluence content
  • Icon URL = <blank>
  • Documentaiton URL = <blank>
  • Macro Body Processing = No macro body
  • Template = 
## Macro has a body: N
## Output: HTML

## Used to auto label a page from a selection

## @noparams
<ac:structured-macro ac:name="expand">
<ac:parameter ac:name="title">Please select all vendors that are used by this platform...</ac:parameter>

<ac:macro ac:name="table"><ac:rich-text-body>
<ac:macro ac:name="tr"><ac:rich-text-body>
<ac:macro ac:name="td"><ac:rich-text-body>

<ac:macro ac:name="unmigrated-wiki-markup"><ac:plain-text-body>
<![CDATA[{choose-label:labels=vendor_a|Descriptions=Vendor A}]]>



Note:  I only kept one choose-labels line, in reality we have a number of them

Hi Michelle,

this works for me:

<ac:structured-macro ac:name="choose-label" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="title">test</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="labels">vendor_a</ac:parameter>

Thanks Thomas,

However that is not giving us the same results.  I added a couple more lines into the code (below) and a screenshot to show you what end users would see (with the old code).

Snippet with more vendor lines

<ac:macro ac:name="unmigrated-wiki-markup"><ac:plain-text-body>
<![CDATA[{choose-label:labels=vendor_a|descriptions=Vendor A Name}]]>
<![CDATA[{choose-label:labels=vendor_b|descriptions=Vendor B Name}]]>
<![CDATA[{choose-label:labels=vendor_c|descriptions=Vendor C Name}]]>

Ok... this might be acceptable.  To make it more manageable I put each provider on it's own line.

<ac:structured-macro ac:name="choose-label" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="labels">
<ac:parameter ac:name="descriptions">
Vendor A,
Vendor B

The down side to this macro is some of our descriptions are longer than the width of the box.  Not sure how to fix that part!
