How do you hide specific ConfiForms Fields so only specific users can see it?


How do you hide specific ConfiForms Fields so only specific users can see it?

I created a form using ConfiForms Macro. However I am trying to figure out how to hide some of the specific fields so only specific users can see a few of the fields. But, the rest of the fields are available to be viewed by everyone.  I I tried using the visible to only groups/users in field definition but that didn't work.

Hi @Loren 

You restrict visibility (and protect the values from viewing by others) by setting the "visible to only groups/users" parameter in ConfiForms Field Definition macro


Ok. I put in the field name, field label, and in visible only to groups/users I put my email address. However when I do that its hiding the field from me too as well.

Is the email address connected to my account enough or there something else I should also be checking in the ConfiForms Field Def macro. Thanks.

Emails in Atlassian cloud don’t identify the user

The parameter expects an account id or multiple, or a user group 


Ok thanks a lot again, Alex. That solved the issue. I just had to use my account ID instead of my email address, and now it's working.


That’s right. Less user friendly than usernames (which you can use on server/data center version if the plugin, but this is the specifics of a cloud platform
