To retrieve the metadata values from matching blog posts, add the Blog post macro using the Confluence macro editor:

At least one metadata value name is required to be added for the macro.

No content is required for the macro body,  the macro placeholder simply displays the entered metadata and any other options chosen.

The macro on the page displays a report for the blog posts with:

  • multiple metadata names added as a comma separated list to create the columns in the report.
  • the values for each metadata name displayed as entries in each column.

The content can be limited by configuring the macro to specific spaces using the space key. If the space key is left empty, the report will default to the current space.

The values in specific columns of the report (if the retrieved values are in an applicable format) can summed by adding the metadata names in a comma separated list in the macro editor totals option.
