Due to Confluence limitations, I had to create lots of user macroses, and I mean over 9000 of them. I think I would be better off writing my own wiki instead of tweaking somebody's else work.
Anyway, is there a way to export these precious macros without paid (!!!) plugins?
Thanks in advance.
Which version of Confluence are you using now? I believe that the user macros are stored in the BANDANA table. Example, in Confluence 4.3:
SELECT bandanavalue FROM bandana WHERE bandanacontext = '_GLOBAL' AND bandanakey = 'atlassian.confluence.user.macros';
If the format is not too different between these two Confluence versions, then I believe you can copy these data and import them into the new Confluence version (after that, try to restart or flush cache).
To export this in an importable way, use mysqldump:
mysqldump -t confluence BANDANA --where="bandanacontext = '_GLOBAL' AND bandanakey = 'atlassian.confluence.user.macros'" > usermacros.sql
You'll then need to shutdown your new instance, then from mysql do:
delete from BANDANA where BANDANACONTEXT='_GLOBAL' AND bandanakey = 'atlassian.confluence.user.macros';
Then import the record from the other instance before starting up confluence again:
mysql confluence < usermacros.sql
