Confluence User Macro Velocity Rendering

Hi Guys,

I've been playing around with User Macros recently, and have been attempting to render some data so I can explore the content of some classes.


#set ($pagelist = $content.getContentPermissionSet("View"))

#foreach ($perm in $pagelist)

#set ($typeJeb = $perm.type())

#set ($groupJeb = $perm.groupName())

#set ($userJeb = $perm.userName())






Is what I have at the moment, but it's not quite working - it's just displaying $typeJeb etc. I feel I'm missing something really obvious here!

Kind regards,

Jamie Sawyer

The next code should work (not tested). if you're trying to get the value of the method getType(), then either user $perm.type or $perm.getType(). The full method name is usaly used when an argument is passed through or the method.

#set ($pagelist = $content.getContentPermissionSet("View"))
#foreach ($perm in $pagelist)


Thanks a lot for this one, other than the additional $ in perm.userName, it works perfectly - this'll get me started nicely!

Kind regards,

Jamie Sawyer
