How to implement dynamic macro parameters (enumerations) in Confluence plugins

Deleted user Feb 22, 2012

I did just read the slides at http://www.slideshare.net/GoAtlassian/atlascamp-2010-making-confluence-macros-easy-for-the-user-dave-taylor

page 48 shows an example how to set static enum parameters

<parameter name="someenumeration" type="enum" required="true">
  <value name="one"/>
  <value name="two"/>
  <value name="three"/>
</parameter>

I would like to fill the values with dynamic values (eg. a list of jira projects which is retrieved via applink). Is that possible somehow?

Thanks in advance,

Lars

Here is how I solved the problem.

https://github.com/Scuilion/confluence-stash-macro/blob/master/stash-macro/src/main/resources/js/stash-macro.js

The trick is to just use jQuery. Don't think of this as a Confluence macro creation problem. You can do pretty much anything you want, create or delete elements, create hidden parameters with  beforeParamsRetrieved, etc.

Bump. I've been struggling (lots) with AJS, configuration files and feeling pretty overwhelmed for what seems like a simple request. Any success from any of the posters here?

Nope. Ended up doing something else instead (not even using a macro or plugin), completely outside of Confluence.

We have a similar question. We have a macro which reads a configuration file when it is rendered. If we add a new configuration to the configuration file, we would like the configuration to appear as a parameter choice in the macro properties panel.

Are macro parameters persisted anywhere else besides atlassian-plugin.xml? Or when is atlassian-plugin.xml read? Are there events associated with atlassian-plugin.xml that one can handle in code?
