create from template macro: why is a space key required?

We used the «create from template macro» for a long time in templates. Now (Confluence Cloud) it seems as it is mandatory, to specify a Space, where the page is being created, when pressing the “create from template button”.

This is a problem for us, as we used the macro in global templates (copy the configured macro from a normal page to the template). As we have to specify a space, this is no longer possible ☹

Is it really intended, that a space has to be defined?

What is the reason that a space has to be named? Why is it not possible, to simply add the new page as the child page to the page, where the macro is located?

Or did I simply miss a certain keyword (e.g. “@self”)?

Hello there!

The behavior that you are currently facing stems from a bug that has been recently updated:

The report has been marked as "In progress"! I would keep my eyes peeled for updates from there. For this, you can start following the report by clicking the "Start watching this issue" on the right side.
