We upgraded Confluence from 5.9.4 to 5.9.8, and now we are seeing:
No macro metadata
There is no metadata configured for this macro which means no configuration screen can be presented here.
If this is a user macro then you can add metadata to the template using the User Macro Administration console.
Clearly this is not a user macro. So I thought I might just delete the macro and insert it again, but the "Questions List' macro no longer appears on my list. So I looked up some help files and was recommended that I look to see if some plugins or add-ins needed to be re-enabled. I saw no admin plugins that needed to be enabled that looked related to Confluence Questions. All modules in Questions for Confluence Add-In were enabled except for one, questions-welcome-file, but it reads that the module cannot be modified when I hover over it.
Not sure if this helps as well, but we've been noticing that a number of items mysteriously get disabled, breaking many things in our Confluence instance. Enabling them again fixes it, but it's sometimes a pain to figure out which it is and we can't figure out why this is happening.
Thanks in advance,
I did find that page, and we are using the Adaptavist Rate Macro add-on. I didn't think that was the issue, since we updated it to the most recent version.
Nothing else worked, so we went back to this document after you suggested it again. Figured why not. So we disabled the Rate Macro, and sure enough the Questions List macro appears again in the list of available macros to insert and the instances of it throughout the site can again be edited and work fine. We then re-enabled the Rate Macro add-on and everything still works.
So there you go. Not exactly sure technically what it was, but doing that fixed it.
