Why is 'Space(s) and Page(s)' a required field for task report macro?

The documentation shows that the Space(s) and Page(s) field for the task macro is NOT required. But when I use the macro (in cloud), it forces me to put in a space or page. This makes it not useful, as I'd like to see all of my tasks from all spaces. Is there an '@all' or something I can put in there?

Jonathan - I had the exact same question/problem and also opened a ticket.  The resolution was that there really isn't an answer right now.  The Cloud Support person who worked on my ticket also opened an enhancement request.  You can go vote for this issue and Atlassian could use the higher # of votes to prioritize a fix.

@Jonathan Trick I will escalate this issue to Atlassian.   For quicker support I would suggest submitting an actual support issue here:

  Unfortunately a space or page is required.  I do not know why the documentation states otherwise.  You will have to add all sites that you would like to pull into the report.

@Brant Schroeder This changed recently. We were able to leave the Spaces and Pages field blank when we first created the macros, now we are not able to. Can this go back to Atlassian for review? It would be impossible for us to add all spaces and pages.

Thanks for your help.

Agreed. This used to work, and now does not. There appears to be no workaround for selecting "all spaces".
