Profiles consist of a set of common parameters that allow users to access data from external applications such as GitHub or GitLab through the macros. Some advantages of using profiles are:

  • Profiles allow user authentication required by some URLs to be hidden from page viewers and editors. Only Confluence administrators have access to this information.
  • Enables macro editors to quickly configure the macro by reusing a shared definition for URL access. 
  • Relative addressing can be used to make the page content less likely to require changes when the base URLs are relocated. 
    • Macro configured URL (that is not a full URL) is appended to the profile provided URL.

The page displays a list of profiles available for the macros. Click Add Profile to open a pop-up window as:

This name must be unique; else, the details specified overwrites the details of the existing profile. This may cause errors in pages where the profile is used.
