The Network macro displays a list of Network interactions between users in your Confluence site, on your Confluence page or blog.

The Network macro allows you to specify the user whose network interactions you wish to show. These interactions include the users that the specified user is following or users who are following the specified user. The Network macro depicts each listed user by their profile picture. It also provides a choice of two themes and the ability to limit the number of users in the list.

What you need to type

Example of what you will get



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 (:).


Required in Wiki Markup?





current user's username

The username of the Confluence user whose network interactions you wish to show. If no username is specified, then current user's (that is, your) network interactions are shown.



(followers in the Wiki Markup editor)

Determines if this macro lists users who the specified user is following (following) or users who are following the specified user (followers).




The full theme depicts users with large versions of their profile pictures and if your network associations are shown in following mode, provides an entry field function to follow more users. The tiny theme depicts users with small versions of their profile pictures only.
