The Contributors macro displays a list of Confluence users who have made a contribution of some type to a page. It can also be used to list watchers of this page.

The scope of this macro can be extended to include the immediate children or descendants of the specified page. The list of contributors can be based on people who have:

  • authored or edited the page(s)
  • contributed comments or added labels to the page(s), or
  • are simply watching the page(s)

Usage with the Wiki Markup Editor


Where TYPE refers to the type of contribution made to the current page (and optionally its descendants), or watches of these pages.


Parameters are options that you can include in Confluence macros to control the content or format of the macro output. The table below lists relevant parameters for this macro.

Parameter names are different in the macro browser and in wiki markup. Below we show the macro browser parameter names in bold text, and the equivalent wiki markup parameters in (bracketed) text. If we do not show any parameter name for the wiki markup, then you should leave out the parameter name and simply include the parameter value as the first parameter, immediately after the colon (:).
