CSV Macro

On this page


The CSV macro can import, format and display comma-separated values (CSV) data from anywhere, by:

  • Reading the CSV data from any of these sources:
    • Within your Confluence page.
    • From a file residing on the Confluence server (Server only).
    • From a global or space template (Server only).
    • From a page attachment.
    • From an external URL.
  • Allowing customizable delimiters, quote characters, and character encoding.
  • Supporting inclusion of Wiki Markup macros within the CSV data.
  • Combining with the Chart macro to produce powerful data visualization.
  • Leveraging the same table styling capabilities as the Table Plus macro.

CSV is not a formal standard, but the best reference is The Comma Separated Value (CSV) File Format. The support in this macro comes close to following this pseudo-standard.  This macro supports Common table capabilities

Applicable upto app version 8.1:

To enable using HTML content with CSV data, you must enable the Stop encoding of html characters parameter. In such a case, it is recommended to contact your administrator to use Macro Security for Confluence with this app to provide an additional layer of security to your data and privacy. Refer to this documentation to for more information on the Macro Security for Confluence app.

From app version 8.2 onwards, if the Stop encoding of html characters parameter is enabled, use of Macro Security for Confluence is no longer needed as the macro itself provides additional security to your data.
