Filter table data - 10.x

Users can now perform simple text-based searches or complex searches that use regular expressions in the tables generated with the SQL for Confluence macros. If the Display data filter option is enabled in the macro's editor, a filter panel appears on the top of every table. This panel contains a text box to enter the required search criteria and buttons: Filter to apply the search against the data rows, and Clear to clear the box to start a new search. Refer to this article to know more about regular expressions.

This page provides an example of how to use filters. Though you can use this feature with any of the macros, for this example, let's work with an SQL Query macro.

To enable this feature, users must enable the Display data filter option from the macro's Table settings
