I'm sure it's good but it suffers from a problem that all of these plugins face. They are not first class citizens. All the content needs to go inside the macro block. I really wish this plugin would just work outside the macro block.

More details

Markdown is a popular lightweight markup language. Confluence content can be created with Markdown syntax. It is an alternative to Confluence's wiki markup.

This provides macros that render Markdown content on Confluence pages. The content can be entered directly in the body of a the markdown macro or be from an attachment or url. Markdown content is processed using pegdown which supports a version of the Markdown language with many popular extensions including Github-flavored-Markdown (GFM), PHP Markdown Extra, and wiki links.


  • pegdown based Markdown syntax with popular extensions provides compatibility with many current usage scenarios
  • Support for wiki links extension syntax customized to Confluence wiki link syntax
    • Examples: [[Home]], [[MARKDOWN:Home]], [[Home^basics.text]]
  • Embedded HTML restricted to authorized users via Macro Security for Confluence
  • Support Markdown in macro body, attachment, or via url
  • Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How do upgrades and renewals work?

    You can upgrade your Atlassian host product license to increase the user tier for add-on licenses any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula, and are automatically reflected in your cart. View an example of the JIRA upgrade price matrix here.

    Add-on licences for downloaded Atlassian products are perpetual. Your original purchase includes 12 months of maintenance. To continue receiving upgrades and support after the initial 12 months, you can renew your maintenance for 50% of the original purchase price. You can purchase maintenance for up to 36 additional months at any time.

    OnDemand add-on subscriptions renew each month and can be canceled any time.

    How do I determine my pricing tier?

    Choose the same user tier you pay for in the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a JIRA download license for 25 users, you should purchase this tier.

    Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    What's the difference between OnDemand and download pricing?

    Just like your Atlassian host application, there are two pricing models. Pick the model that matches your Atlassian product, and the same rules apply:

    Subscriptions renew every month
    Add-ons and instances are hosted by Atlassian
    Licenses last forever, support and upgrades last for 12 months
    Instances and add-ons are hosted on your servers
    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    Add-on purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application.

    Add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Do you offer enterprise pricing?

    Choose enterprise pricing if your Atlassian host application is billed for enterprise licenses.

    Enterprise pricing includes 24/7 phone and email support, access to training through Atlassian University, and other perks. Learn more.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    You can extend your add-on trial up to 5 times – in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Free Trial and you'll be directed to generate a license at MyAtlassian. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    Alternatively, if you remove your expiring trial license from your Atlassian host application, you can re-add it back for another free trial.

    What are legacy pricing tiers?

    If you bought your Atlassian host application during or before February 2012, you qualify for legacy pricing tiers.

    • JIRA tiers are 10, 25, 50, and 100 users. The legacy unlimited tier was 100+ users.
    • The Confluence legacy tiers are 10, 25, 50, 100, 500, and 2000 users. The unlimited legacy tier was 2000+ users.
    • There are no enterprise licenses prior to and including February 2012.
