Those dropdowns are there only when you create a page from a template, but when the page is created there is no dropdowns anymore, but the value you have selected on page creation. It is by design, afaik

Hello Amit, please check if there are any elements on the template that are not allowed such as commas, as per the template creation page states. Also, please post the markup you are using to this thread, to allow some context of the issue.

Hi, I have created a template and created a variable using $ sign and type as list($var(In Progress, Complete)). I can see below while creating new page from template..i.e. dropdown !!

Hello folks,

is there anybody who knows a solution to create dropdowns which are available after creating a page. Or in other words, where the User can only choose beetween pre defined variables.




Have you found a solution to this? I have the same use case.

Hi Danielle, I just checked out the Scaffolding Plugin, but I didn't see this value for a paid add-on. So I just created a custom status list. See here: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/274798/custom-drop-down-list-for-statuses Greets
