I am designing a Confluence template for migration run books. I've created several template variables to be populated by the user, but there is the possibility that some of the information may change. Is it possible to change the value of a template variable post-publication?
Short of going into the database, Is there any way to change the values of the variables after publication?
Good day @Logan Hawkes,
I work with apps, so my apologies if this is too far fetched :D
I have seen the app Scaffolding Templates, which adds the possibility that when the main template is modified, all pages created with said template are also modified.
So, with this crazy idea, you could create (hopefully not too much) templates for each space/team or other classification, and when the time comes, massively update them.
But I can imagine it could be troublesome... Hope it helps as an idea, and possibly to save a few seconds :)
With friendly regards
ps. nice profile pic
That may be the only way. I was really hoping for a native solution so I keep it simple. I'm developing a Jira server migration run book template and hoped to expand it to datacenter then on-prem -> cloud. Using templates seems to require that I have all the data at the beginning. That's not always the case. The IPs and hostnames on my current migration have already changed since my original post.
I see... My apologies, as at the moment I can only think of this macro method. I'll be crossing my fingers for you to get more feedback, as its an interesting case.
Another possibility, a bit more troublesome but with native apps, would be via excerpt macros.
Perhaps creating landing pages, named after the first variable (or its combination) and using excerpt-includes could be helpful to massively update this field to the respective pages... But of course there is a lot of problematics behind it...
Lastly, perhaps Scriptrunner could help (I am no expert, I just know it has quite a deal of customizations and possibilities).
Best of luck! And if possible, please feel free to share your end solution.
