What is the macro name for your Confluence macros?

I would like to search for the Timesheet macros 'Time Sheet' and 'Project Pivot' in Confluence using the 'macroName' string in Confluence global search as detailed here.

To run the search, I need the macro name. Here is a list of Confluence macro names that work with this kind of search. E.g. to find out where the 'Page Properties Macro' is used you can used the search string: macroName:details.

Hi Armin,

Looks like it's not possible. Basing on all such macros are stored with 'gadget' name.

Thank you.

@armin.mayrhofer - if you check the HTML source of a page containing the macro you want to search for, look for "data-macro-name" and then try running a macroName search against that name.

Checking the source of a page with the Page Tree macro, I see its data-macro-name is pagetree, so now I can search by: macroName: pagetree

Fun fact, if you're searching for several macros with the same root name, use a wildcard "*" to search for multiple macros simultaneously:

macroName: include*

Thanks for checking @Andriy Zhdanov
