  • A user macro exists in the admin console but the user cannot insert it through macro Autocomplete or the macro browser


  • The user macro definition is incorrect.
  • As of Confluence 4.0, all user macros need to have parameters defined and must be "visible to all users" through the admin console.



This is an already available function in Confluence 3.4 so you can test your user macros in an older version of Confluence before upgrading to Confluence 4.0
