This page details integration between the Comala Metadata app‡ and Comala Document Management.

The Comala Metadata app was the basis for the Comala Document Management own metadata functionality, and as such both apps are innately compatible with each other.

If you are using metadata values created with the Comala Document Management {set-metadata} macro, these are only indexed by Confluence and appear in the Confluence Search if the Comala Metadata app is installed.

‡ You will need  Comala Metadata app version 3.4 or above.

Accessing Metadata Properties

Use Value References to the metadata field you wish to retrieve.

For example, to get the value of a metadata "Author" field, use


If you want to retrieve metadata from another page, you can include the page title

@Page Title:Author@

And you can retrieve values from pages in different spaces by including the Space Key

@KEY:Page Title:Author@

For more information on using these, please view Value References and/or Metadata References.

Accessing Additional Internal Metadata

You can also reference additional internal metadata.

Accessing Metadata Supplier values

Values from the Metadata Supplier can be accessed via Supplier References.

Saving to Metadata

Use the Comala Document Management {set-metadata} macro to store metadata properties which can then be read by the Comala Metadata app {metadata-from} macro.

  • the Comala Metadata app {metadata-from} macro can also read page-level workflow parameters when the Comala Document Management {workflowparameter} macro is used with the edit=true parameter.
