Writing Macro to add Labels based on Article content

So I wanted to create a macro (very similar to http://confluence-addons.connect.adaptavist.com/label-tools/latest/choose-label-macro.html but definitely not identical unfortunately :\ )

That adds labels/suggest in a popup box or something similar from a given list, in case the words in the label-list appear in the confluence article.


Is it possible?

Can I do it "macro-only"?

Without creating a plugin or anything like that..?

Thanks a lot!!!

This might be a good starting point:


Although the code is old, it should still work. Just don't forget to change the &lt; and &gt; to < and > respectively.

How do I use this function?



I don't know what parameters I should give it, but it seems like it would give me exactly what I need, and then I will only need to list it.

maybe, if it is possible, how do I access the page's content?

I could check the page's content and if some words exist there, I will add them as labels- that seems like an ideal solution, don't you think ?:)


Thanks a lot!!!!! :-)

Hi Stephen,

I am also trying to achieve something similar. I am very new to confluence and still learning. I just wanted to know how do i use the code that is provided on https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/How-do-I-add-labels-to-a-page-using-a-user-macro/qaq-p/129512
