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.

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. 

I have the same question too, any answer to this so far ?

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?
