Developing Confluence User Macros

The Atlassian Marketplace offers numerous apps for the Confluence Server that can be used to expand the features of Confluence. However, this is not always possible. Some of these apps are very expensive, you only need a fraction of the functionality or there is no suitable app available for your needs.
That is why there is another way: so-called user macros. These user macros can be created by Confluence administrators and expand the functionality of Confluence.
This training will show you how to easily implement small adjustments in formatting or functionality for Confluence. We will start with simple custom panels (pre-defined status or panel macros), followed by the Velocity Syntax and will conclude by looking at the use of Java and REST API.



1 day


  • The course demonstrates the scope of performance of user macros
  • You will be able to easily expand Confluence at a reasonable price and regardless of app manufacturer

        target group

        (Specialist) Confluence administrators, Confluence Key or Power users who wish to expand missing functions in Confluence using a user macro.
