3
4
5

7

"dynamicContentMacros": [{
   ...
   "url": "/render-map?pageTitle={page.title}&viewChoice={view}",

The macro parameter indexing property allows apps to hook into the mechanism by which Confluence populates its search index for site search. Each time macro is created or updated in Confluence, the value that is stored in the macro parameter will be added to the search index. The value of this macro parameter will also be used in displaying the excerpt text for search result.

This is useful when the body of the macro is not searchable, for example: macros with bodyType: none. The app can still provide meaningful search text for this content by storing the extracted information to the macro parameter. The data in this macro parameter will get indexed as is without any modification.

Properties

enabled
Type
Defaults to
false
Description

Defines whether this macro parameter should be indexed for site search.


multiple
Type
Defaults to
false
Description

Whether it takes multiple values.


required
Type
Defaults to
false
Description

Whether it is a required parameter.


values
Type
Description

Describes the enum values - only applicable for enum typed parameters.
