Why can't i see the "user macro" section in Confluence Admin

I use the hosted service of Confluence and should have Administrator privileges (I am member of the administrators group and can open Confluence Admin), but there is no User Macro section. Is this feature not available in the hosted service? Is there any way to access this feature?

Thanks

Sadly, user macros are not available in the On-Demand version. On the below link on the right side of the page you will see an info box that says "The information on this page does not apply to Confluence OnDemand."

Here is a more full list of what is and is not supported in the On-Demand version.

"The information on this page does not apply to Confluence OnDemand." info is not there (anymore?).

Does it mean "user macro" should be available on the OnDemand version?

This is dissapointing - I am finding this tool quite limited. Are user plugins available to the cloud Confluence?

This cannot be true! I was killing myself for days trying to find the _User Macro_ button!

What project did you transition or start on Confluence with the shift to remote work?

It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
