Data FormatColumn delimiter,
  • , (comma) - The default column separator.
  • whitespace - Blanks, tabs, and other white space are used to separate columns.
  • tab - A single tab character is used to separate columns.
  • blanks - Blank or blanks only.
  • pipe - To use pipe as a delimiter, enter the text ‘pipe’ as macro does not support pipe character(|) and throws an error message.
  • other single character delimiter - may be within double quotes with some restrictions. Examples: ";" and "=" work. "|" does not.

    • Ensure to enter delimiter, the same as in the CSV data, with no additional spaces before and after the delimiter.
    • Other single character delimiters may have some restrictions while used in large data sets and may lead to performance issues. Hence it is always advisable to use a small data set and test if the application supports the delimiter. If the delimiter is supported, then go ahead to provide the large data sets.

Quote characterdoubleThe character used to represent quoted data. Quoted data may contain delimiters or new lines. Quote character data must be doubled inside a quoted string.
  • double - Double quote character: "
  • single - Single quote character: '
Data Settings

Columns to display
Comma separated list of column names or numbers in any order. Defaults to all columns in existing order. Columns are enumerated starting at 1.columns
Output formathtmlDetermines how the output is formatted. Use wiki to have the data in the table rendered by the wiki renderer.output
Ignore trailing blank rowsOnA row is considered blank if all the columns selected by the column parameter are blank. Turn this parameter Off to show these blank rows.ignoreTrailingBlankRows
Show non-formatted version of  generated wikiOffTurn this parameter On to show a non-formatted version of the wiki table following the formatted table. This is used to help resolve formatting issues. It can also be used to convert CSV to Confluence markup by cut and paste.showWiki
Escape special wiki charactersOffTurn this parameter On to allow few special characters to be escaped so that the formatting is unaffected. When wiki output is requested (output=wiki), some special characters (like '|', '[', ']', '{', '}') in data may cause undesirable formatting of the table. The default is false so that data that has wiki markup is handled correctly.escape
Render wiki markup macros in bodyOffTurn this parameter On to render wiki markup macros found in the body prior to processing as CSV. This is useful to run macros from Scripting for Confluence, Run CLI Actions in Confluence, SQL for Confluence, or similar that can produce CSV output.macros
Stop encoding of html charactersOffServer only. Turn this parameter On for CSV tables that use output=html and have HTML content. HTML content like <a href=>google> displays as a link only if this parameter is enabled. Your administrator must grant specific users or groups to use this capability using Macro Security for Confluence.disableAntiXss
