It takes little more effort in Cloud, but its fairly trivial to add your own Static Content Macros - I covered this at Summit a few years ago.

You can use low-cost static content hosting options as long as they support HTTPS (you don't even need a domain).

It then only takes three files to create your macro:

  • atlassian-connect.json (the add-on configuration file)
  • An icon (image file) for your add-on
  • A text file containing your storage format code

Provision through the marketplace as a private add-on.

50% of your answer is about how easy it is to do.. and 0% is about how to actually do it.

I posted that reply in 2018. However, last year I wrote an article with a bit more detail:

Particularly as things can change, bear in mind that you may still find it necessary to dip into the development documentation

PS I might have a "community leader" badge, but I don't work for Atlassian.

Apologies for the tone. I was a bit frustrated, and had just gone through 20 different links about how to do it, and all were outdated or answers that didn't actually show how to do it.. Maybe I'm just used to stackoverflow. Thanks for the link, - Have a nice day!

Hey Sebastian, 

user macros are one of the restricted features of Confluence OnDemand. Please refer to the documentation for further information:

Restricted functions in Confluence Cloud



Sorry to say! :D I love writing smaller user macros and that's one of the things that keeps me away from Cloud. Additionally working with customization/CSS
