Here is an easy to follow blog: Making the include macro's content appear the Confluence search results


  • The page must be rendered at least once before the included data is added to the search index.
  • If the included data changes, the change is only reflected in the index if the page is rendered after the included data has changed.
  • Automation using Confluence Command Line Interface (CLI) can help keep data current. If you have a large number of pages using the cache macro with automation, make sure you customize the cache storage to ensure other cache macro use is not negatively impacted.
