To review any Macro Resolver Errors you can navigate to the Event Log application.


You can view Macro Resolver Errors in more detail by clicking on the eye icon. Macro Resolver Errors should be reviewed in a timely manner and addressed appropriately. Ideally there should be no Macro Resolver Errors on your site.


A good way to confirm if a macro is working correctly is to use the Kentico Xperience Macro Console. To reach that feature you should navigate to System Application and then find the Macros > Console tab.

From there you can copy and paste your macro into the Expression text box and click Execute to see the output in the bottom window.
