      Issue Summary

      When trying to use the "Create from Template" macro from a template which was edited and that we added variables to it, the page is then created without the variables.

      Environment

      Confluence Cloud - Old editor

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Navigate to Content Tools in a space
      2. Edit Troubleshooting articles template
      3. Add a variable for the Category field
      4. Save it
      5. In the same space, create a new page and add the Create from Template macro selecting the Troubleshooting article as "Template name" from the drop-down and then save the page
      6. Navigate to the view mode of the page and click on "Add troubleshooting article" (article title, it may differ)

      Expected Results

      The page should be created using the template previously edited with the variables.

      Actual Results

      The page is created with the variables in blank.
