Show maps based on addresses in Scaffolding fields

Scenario

This recipe shows you how to embed Google Maps in a Confluence page using address or coordinate data stored in Scaffolding.

This recipe also requires the third-party app Embed Google Map. With the Embed Google Map macro you are able to create maps by entering an address in the Address or coordinates parameter.

Reporting is used to directly inject Scaffolding values into Embed Google Map's Address or coordinates parameter.

If you already have address or coordinate data stored in Scaffolding, this avoids having to manually enter the data into the Address or coordinates parameter.
