How to add user information to the personal space blueprint

Deleted user Mar 07, 2019


I'm trying to add the user profile of the current user to the personal space blueprint, so that when that space is created, it's pre-populated with their profile information.

I can't seem to find a way to make that work. I can select the user profile macro, but it forces me to select a specific user vs something like a variable.


Any suggestions?

Hello there!

Thanks for reaching to the Community Peter. Currently, the User Profile macro can not perform the requested task. It will take the value (username) and display information based on that. You can check further information here:

User Profile Macro

In Confluence Cloud we could use the Space Details Macro. Which should display to us who created the space, but not much more than that:

Confluence Cloud | Space Details Macro


If you are on Confluence Server though, we can have something along these lines as user macro:

## @noparams

<div class="aui-message aui-message-info">
#set ($creator=$space.getCreator())
Creator Name: $creator.getFullName()<br>
Creator Email: $creator.getEmail()<br>
Space Creation Date: $action.dateFormatter.formatGivenString("yyyy-MM-dd", $space.getCreationDate())

This, #set ($creator=$space.getCreator()) sets the variable $creator with the value of the user object that is attributed to the creator of the current space.

This Creator Name: $creator.getFullName()<br> will get the fullname of the creator.

This Creator Email: $creator.getEmail()<br> will display the creator email on screen.

Due to some differences between Confluence Cloud and Server, user macros are not available in Cloud:
