Will the content made with the Macro toolbox will disappear?


Our company used the macro toolbox (HTML, Tabs and Expand) for a lot of pages.
We learned that this macro has been removed from the Atlassian Marketplace and will be replaced with an Unknown macro message in our confluence pages.

Will our content disappear? Is there a simple way to keep the content of the pages that were using these Macros?


Thank you!

Hi Nora,

Update: We added drop-in replacement for HTML macro from Macro Toolbox in HTML & Iframe Macro for Confluence

Please note that this only covers HTML macro, not Tabs and Expand macros.

Please follow these steps:

- Remove Macro Toolbox from Confluence (contact Atlassian support if uninstall is disabled)

- Install HTML & Iframe Macro for Confluence

All the old contents will be properly rendered.

Old reply: As you have already seen, macro displays error message. The content behind the macro is till there, it is just not rendered as the app is discontinued.

In order to make contents render properly, you will need to migrate them to new apps. If you are using HTML Macro, you can use our app: HTML & Iframe Macro for Confluence

To migrate contents:

- Open old macro in edit mode and copy contents

- Open new macro and paste the contents

This way, they will be rendered properly again.

We won't be able to get to all our instances of MacroToolbox by the end of April. What happens to the content in the Macro when we can't open it any more?

Hi Nichola, we are planning to release update on HTML & Iframe Macro for Confluence with drop in replacement support for HTML macro from Macro Toolbox. I will give you an update about it.

Could you please drop your contact info at

Update: HTML & Iframe Macro for Confluence  now includes drop-in replacement for HTML Macro from Macro Toolbox.
