You can use the SIS REM module to view, remove, install, or replace macros.

What are SIS macros?

A macro is an expression that can be reused multiple times in other SIS macros, triggers, and compositions.

For details, see Managing Macros in the SIS Administration Guide.

To manage macros:


From the SIS instance page, select Macros.

A list of Macros installed for the selected instance displays.



To…​ Do this:

View a macro

  • Click it.
    That macro’s dependencies, dependents, and XML display.

  • To display a dependent or dependency, click it.

  • To expand the XML window, click (show full).

Remove the selected macro

  • Click Remove.
    SIS REM module prompts you to confirm removing.

  • Click OK.
    SIS REM module removes the macro from the selected SIS instance.

Warning You can’t remove a macro that has dependents.

Install a new macro

  • Click Install.
    A Choose File button displays.

  • Click the Choose File button.
    An Open dialog box displays.

  • Navigate to and select the XML file for the macro you want to install.

    Warning The XML file must adhere to the SIS Macro XML schema defined for the SIS version.

    The SIS REM module installs the macro. If that SIS instance already has a macro with the same identity, the SIS REM module asks whether you want to replace the existing XML.

Note Changes to SIS macros do not take effect immediately. The SIS must explicitly reload its components to apply any changes.
