Confluence Hide Macro

Hi All,


I have seen the macro's self-referenced documentation:

I want to use the macro to hide content from all but a few individuals. I tried using

literal = false
showif = myname:$user

but the content stays hidden.

Please provide a reference to examples hiding or showing content based on user identity.



Many Thanks!

You could try the Visibility macro from ServiceRocket. It works for me.

The Hide macro works with regex matching and you are not going to get a match of myname with $user as both are text values unless you have this included in a run macro where user is one of your user defined variables. 

Milo's answer is appropriate if you are just changing view of content based on users and groups.
