How do I use the Bob Swift script plugin

The documentation is minimal, I have tried to use the sample scripts in the Groovy macro and in User Macros and I cannot get anything to work. Some of these scripts are 4 years old, maybe they haven't ben updated to be compatiple with Confluence 5.1???

I really want these to work but I just don't know how they are meant to run, and there is nothing in the documentation to help.

You could try my script plugin: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.onresolve.confluence.scripting.script-runner - although it targets a different use case really.

Not that there's many examples, except the built-in scripts which may be a bit complex to start learning. But there is plenty of java confluence code out there, it's just a case of putting a groovy spin on it.

Or let us know what you want to do and someone will give you a pointer.

Hi Jamie,

I have your plugin for JIRA, but does this work with Confluence too? I read somewhere that you do not support Confluence.

But what I really want to do is have a workaround for Atlassians lack of support for this bug/feature, https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-20118

What I what is a macro that when put on a page, when someone views the page they are automatically added as watches of the page, I was hoping to do this with Bob Swift's scripts as he has an example which is so close to this and I was going to tweak it. But I can't get it working, here is the sample https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=8749070

Hi Chris,

Sorry, I posted the wrong link, I updated it now.

No, it doesn't do that, it's more for admin/maintenance stuff. "Listeners" and macros etc will come at some point if there's demand.

cheers, jamie
