User Macro to Get a count of likes or comments on a page?



Can anyone help with custom macro to display number of likes (or comments) on a page?


I'm trying to populate "page properties report" but build in likes/comments count functionality has a bug and column headers don't display likes/comments.


So i'm building out template for "page properties" macro to capture the data and than pull it on higher up report page. 


Thanks in Advance!

Hi @Alex Kulichkov 

I only get the answer for the comments:

#set( $page = $pageManager.getPage($content.getId()) )
Comments: $page.getComments().size()

For the likes, I do not know how to get it. Sorry.

Regards, Dominic

My full "No macro body" looks like this:

## Macro title: My Macro
## Macro has a body: Y or N
## Body processing: Selected body processing option
## Output: Selected output option
## Developed by: My Name
## Date created: dd/mm/yyyy
## Installed by: My Name

## @noparams

#set( $page = $pageManager.getPage($content.getId()) )
Comments: $page.getComments().size()

Please share your code for the likes. I'm interessted into this.

Thanks for the full code, comment count works, but we are still researching one for likes.

We tried likesManager.getlikes() but it didnt work. 


We will be working with Atlassian to find the solution and post it here once found!

Hey. Did you end up finding a solution with Atlassian?
