Passing a space key parameter to an existing macro

Ok, I have a series of templates, each has a "Create New Page From Template" macro in it.

One of the parameters in this macro is the "Space Key" which is the key to the space that the new page shoudl be created in.

As this could be triggered in several spaces I want to be able to have a $spaceKey or @spaceKey or something that can be passed through when the new page gets ceated.

How do I do this?

I have tried a range of options and can't seem to find the answer. It either errors with "unknown space" or it tries to create the new page in the oringial space but under the parent page (from the new space).

Any pointers or sample code would be appricated.

Hi Robin,

The issues is that you can variables in templates, but they arent supported within macros. We have a current feature request for this:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-29162?jql=text%20~%20%22templates%20macros%22

Unfortunately, there doesnt look like a good way to workaround this according to the docs:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Creating+a+Page+using+a+Template

I would reccomend you add some feedback to the feature request, and vote for it. Sorry I dont any solid answers for you.

Cheers,

Gary
