_Quick Guide to User Macro Template

  • Use HTML and Confluence-specific XML elements in the macro template. Details of Confluence's storage format are in Confluence Storage Format.
  • You can use the Velocity templating language. Here is more information on the Velocity project.
  • If your macro has a body, your template can refer to the macro body text by specifying '$body'.
  • Each parameter variable you use must have a matching metadata definition. Use @param to define metadata for your macro parameters.
  • When using the information passed using parameters, refer to your parameters as $paramXXX where 'XXX' is the parameter name that you specifed in the @param metadata definition.
  • Use @noparams if your macro does not accept parameters.
