How to access "content properties" from the RTE?


On Confluence Server, in the Rich Text Editor (RTE), I’ve created a byline icon (next to the breadcrumbs) to configure page properties for my add-on. Those properties are stored in the Content Properties API.

  • Do I really have to call the REST API to deal with the content properties? It seems inefficient. Aren’t content properties stored in the RTE too, and submitted together with the page?
  • Since the page is created from a blueprint, is there any way to set those content properties from the blueprint’s Create dialog?
  • It seems content properties aren’t copied when the page is copied. Is that correct?

Thank you,
