How can I export the four dozen macros we have?

There are three seasoned Confluence admins in the company and nobody knows.

I just created two to find out where they are stored -- to no avail. Neither in the data directory nor in a DB table.

Well, the d/l link *WAS* broken, but John Kodumal helped me to get it fixed.

Now I m going circles with the Config button. (definitely) See

and my mail.


Thanks, Google!

select * from dbo.BANDANA as b where b.BANDANAKEY = 'atlassian.confluence.user.macros';

Can anyone fill me in what the table name refers to?


SQL Server 2012 Management Studio definitely has some "ideosyncrasies" how it handles copy / export of ntext fields (BANDANAVALUE in this case), means 3 out of 4 approaches cut off the text. Took some time to find THIS out.
First suspected Confluence to have trashed the well-formed-ness of the field with the edit of some macro - as they are all together in one ntext field.

Then I found the AppFusions Macro Importer / Exporter, but the d/l link was broken and after the d/l worked - I m still trying to configure it and get it to work.


The download link on Marketplace is not broken.

Please contact us direct ( or phone: 888-516-2890) to resolve - Answers is not really the place to resolve support questions with plugin vendors.

While we do watch Answers, with the amount of traffic coming through here, we can't watch this forum every second of our days - and would rather get you solutions faster/more direct, as reasonable.
