I need to find the author/last modifier of a page from the 'atlassian-plugin.xml' file in a plugin

Matt Albone Jan 08, 2013


Within a web-item in a confluence plugin i have been able to pass down a pages ID number using the following:

<web-item key="outofdate" name="outofdate" section="system.content.button" weight="40">

<context-provider class=""/>



<icon height="16" width="16">



<conditions type="AND">

<condition class="com.atlassian.confluence.plugin.descriptor.web.conditions.NotPersonalSpaceCondition/">

<condition class="com.atlassian.confluence.plugin.descriptor.web.conditions.CanEditSpaceStylesCondition/">



The '$' parameter allowed me to access the page ID and pass it down to the plugin, I was hoping there is a list somewhere of all the possible attributes that can be put in this link tag in a web-item. I know there's others such as '$space.key', and i've seen a few oher examples, what I'm really after is something to give me the author or last modifier of the page in question though.

Thanks in advance

I still have no idea where the documentation for this is, i ended up using a workaround.

I brought in the page ID as shown above, then used:

Page p = pageManager.getPage(Long.parseLong(pageID));    
auth = p.getCreatorName() + "";
lastMod = p.getLastModifierName() + "";

Works just as well! =]

That's a fine way to do it. :)
