I am looking to see what "user" written macros have been utilized in the last year to potentially delete user macros that were created but never utilized in confluence. Is there a way to do that?
We have a "Macro Stats" plugin that lists the usage for all the plugins...I am looking to see if a similar one exists for User Macros.
One thing you could do is do a search for the user macros to see how many pages they have been used in. This quite simple, see http://ffeathers.wordpress.com/2011/11/04/how-to-search-confluence-for-usage-of-a-macro/ for information.
It's manual work, alas.
I wrote a macro to iterate over a space's pages and detect macro usage in each space. It works on Confluence 4.2.x. I have not tested it on 3.x or 5.x.
