There are several Confluence macros you can use to display metadata or select pages on the basis of their metadata in Confluence. This page will show you how to use the Display Metadata macro.

In order to insert any of the macros, you need to possess editor permissions for the page.

Introduction

The Display Metadata macro shows metadata of a specified Confluence page.

If you tick a checkbox, the respective metadata value will appear as a row in the overview.

Available boxes:

  • Author - author of the page
  • Last Modifier - person who made the last modification
  • Created at - date of creation

If both filters (metadata fields and metadata sets) are empty, all metadata (except hidden fields) will be displayed.

Example Use Cases

1) Display all page metadata in a table. Check out this use case in our demonstration space.

2) Keep your site up-to-date using metadata. By choosing the render mode "value" and entering a specific field key, you can display single metadata values wherever you need the information.
