The Content by User macro generates a tabulated list of the content items, throughout the Confluence installation, that have been created by a specified Confluence user. The list includes all current pages, comments and spaces created by the user. Each item in the table is linked to its corresponding page, page comment or space dashboard.

Note that items for page comments contain a link to the page, followed by a second link to the comment itself, with these separated by a greater-than sign (>).

To add the Content by User macro to a page:

  1. In the Confluence editor, choose Insert > Other Macros.

    some more parameter would be nice – for example

    *limit:pages|blogs|comments

    *spaces:1|2|3

    *max-count:0..999 etc.

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for the suggestion.

      If you'd like to pursue this idea, why not create a feature request on our issue tracker for the Confluence developers?

      I hope this helps.

      Best Regards,

    Can you use this with @self to get a list of pages that you have created?
