The Content by User macro generates a list of all the content created by a specified user across your Confluence site. This includes current pages, comments, and spaces created by that user. You can click on any item to be taken to the page, comment, or space in which it resides.
The Content by User macro will only display content that the logged in user has permission to see. This means that the same macro may display different content to two users who each have different view permissions.
Use the Content by User macro
To add the Content by User macro:
When editing , select from the toolbar
Find the item to be inserted and select it
You can also type / on the page to bring up the same list you'd see by selecting from the toolbar.
To edit the Content by User macro:
Select the macro placeholder. The floating toolbar appears.
Select Edit. The right panel opens.
Modify the parameters. Your changes are saved as you go.
Resume editing the page, and the panel closes.
Parameters are options that you can set to control the content or format of the macro output.
If the parameter name used in Confluence Cloud storage format or wikimarkup is different than the label used when inserting macros using the browser or the slash command, it will be listed below in brackets (example).
The Confluence username for a person who has created content.
Specify one or more space keys, separated by a comma or a space. The macro will display only the content which belongs to the space(s) specified here.
The macro will insert a default value of 'all', but if no value is specified, it will search the current space.
Maximum number of results to display at a time
The maximum value for this parameter is 500, which means that only 500 results can show at one time. You can click show more to see the next 500 results.
Wiki markup example
Wiki markup is useful when you need to add a macro outside the editor, for example as custom content in the sidebar, header or footer of a space.
Macro name: content-by-user
Macro body: None.
