Hide If


This macro will hide its contents from viewers if the context matches the parameters specified.

On Cloud, if you have large content consider breaking it into smaller chunks over multiple Hide If macros to avoid performance issues.

Notes about migration

Some legacy Macro parameters from Confluence Server are not supported yet. More details at our FAQ page. 

In Confluence Cloud, the legacy Macro parameters will be shown in a section that is accessible by showing and hiding the legacy field parameters dropdown.

If the migrated macro has no legacy parameters, the "Show legacy field parameters" dropdown will not be visible in the macro editor.

 Be aware that content is only hidden in the Confluence page view, and that the content is still available when editing a page, viewing page history, email notifications, etc. To truly secure sensitive information, consider using the Security & Encryption app instead.
