Metadata Report macro

The Metadata Report macro is used to display a table of pages belonging to a Content Category with the assigned Metadata values. The pages to be shown can be configured with filters.

The table prepared and inserted by the macro on a page can then look like this, for example:

How to use

To enter the macro into the page, just select it from the macro browser.



You can filter for pages that belong to a specific Content Category by choosing one from the dropdown in the macro editor. There is also the option to filter for pages that have a specific value in the Metadata field that belongs to the selected Content Category. You can filter for values of all Metadata fields which are available in the selected Content Category.

Filter for pages that belong to the Content Category “Book”

Current page filter

If you use a Metadata field of the type "Page link" in your Content Category, you can now also filter for all pages that belong to the selected Content Category and that use the current page you are on as a value.

Select and use the predefined filter “Current page”



Then all pages which are assigned to this Content Category and have the value you have entered in the chosen Metadata field will be shown in a table, along with their Metadata field values.

Metadata respects permissions. Of course, the table (image above) contains only pages to which the current user has access. So keep this in mind if your results differ from those of your colleagues.
