Overview

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) has become a highly used interchange format because of its lightweight, simplicity, and ability for humans to read and write easily. Many REST APIs produce JSON format and the format is used predominantly in Atlassian REST APIs. There is also an abundance of support libraries associated with the format which makes it ideal for scripting output. 

The JSON table macro can import, format and display JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) data from anywhere, by:

  • Reading the JSON data from any of these sources:
    1. Within your Confluence page.
    2. From a file residing on the Confluence server (Server only).
    3. From a Space Template (Server only).
    4. From a page attachment.
    5. From an external URL.
  • Allowing customizable access to fields.
  • Supporting inclusion of Wiki Markup macros within the JSON data.
  • Combining with the Chart macro to produce powerful data visualization.
  • Leveraging the same table styling capabilities as the Table Plus macro.

This macro supports Common table capabilities.

Available in plugin release 6.3 and above.
