Profiles allow administrators to save commonly used parameter sets for easy maintenance. This is especially important for accessing servers including server addresses, user ids, and passwords. Furthermore, by putting user ids and passwords in profiles, the password cannot be seen by normal users, only administrators that have access to add-on configuration can view the configuration.

It is important to understand the Security considerations for using profiles.

Profile NameUsed as the reference by the profile parameter
Profile ValueParameter values in wiki format - a pipe (|) separated list of key value pairs where the key is a parameter name from the CLI Macro parameter list.

Use server=%base_url% in the profile to reference the current Confluence system. %base_url% can also be used in actions.
