How to create a dropdown list in a template in cloud confluence?

I want to create a dropdown list in confluence template. Like mentioned here,

Tried this, but when I do @VAR@ it doesn't shows any list option, but language option like html, javascript etc.

I tried to embed HTML code like this:

 <select name="Criticality">
 <option value="high">High</option>
 <option value="medium">Medium</option>
 <option value="low">Low</option>


but it shows it as html code.

I am using cloud version of confluence.


Any help would be highly appreciated.

Hi @sumit , out of box you cannot do this , but there is another way with which you can pretty much achieve this, 

  1. Use a three row , table. 
  2. Now in each row , using the action point tick box give the selection option required
    (Blue , red , green) 
  3. Now go to add macros and select expand. 
  4. Once your expand is placed ready , cut the entire table and paste it inside the expand box. 
  5. Now rename the expand from " click to expand" to the desired question
    (Color required ?) . 
  6. Hope this way you can achieve what is required. 
  7. But Con's are this wont be a single select drop down. As user can tick on all three options. 
  8. Still might hold good , for some case.
