List names in confluence-users

Hi there,

 

Can anyone suggest a user macro for generating all of the user's full names within 'confluence-users' and displaying them in a drop-down list?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Something like this should work:

## @noparams
#set ( $members = $userAccessor.getMemberNamesAsList($userAccessor.getGroup("confluence-users")) )
<style>
select:required:invalid {
  color: gray;
}
option[value=""][disabled] {
  display: none;
}
option {
  color: black;
}
</style>
<form class="aui" onsubmit="return false;">
    <fieldset>
        <div class="field-group">
            <label for="users-list">Users:</label>
            <select class="select" id="users-list" name="users-list" title="users list" required>
                <option value="" disabled selected>Select a user</option>
                #foreach ( $member in $members )
                    #set ( $member = $userAccessor.getUserByName($member) )
                    <option value="$member.name">$member.fullName</option>
                #end
            </select>
        </div>
    </fieldset>
</form>

Hi Stephen, This works perfectly, except one issue. The drop-down list is ordered by username. Could the list be ordered by full name?

Hey there,

You can execute the following query in the database:

select u.user_name,g.group_name from cwd_user u,cwd_group g ,cwd_membership m where g.group_name = 'confluence-users' and m.parent_id=g.id group by u.user_name, g.group_name

However you can download a SQL manager for Confluence like this one and put it on a page.

Hope this will help you smile.

Cheers,

Ordering by full name is harder than it seems.  Here are two options, one that renders on the server side (might take a long time, depending on how many users you have):

## @noparams

#set ( $members = $userAccessor.getMemberNamesAsList($userAccessor.getGroup("confluence-users")) )
#set ( $container = $content.class.forName("java.util.TreeMap").newInstance() )

#foreach ( $member in $members )
    #set ( $member = $userAccessor.getUserByName($member) )
    #set ( $dummy = $container.put($member.fullName, $member.name) )
#end

<style>
select:required:invalid {
  color: gray;
}
option[value=""][disabled] {
  display: none;
}
option {
  color: black;
}
</style>

<form class="aui" onsubmit="return false;">
    <fieldset>
        <div class="field-group">
            <label for="users-list">Users:</label>
            <select class="select" id="users-list" name="users-list" title="users list" required>
                <option value="" disabled selected>Select a user</option>
                #foreach ( $member in $container.keySet() )
                    <option value="$container.get($member)">$member</option>
                #end
            </select>
        </div>
    </fieldset>
</form>

and here's one that sorts the list on the client side (i.e. in the browser) that might load the page a little faster:

## @noparams

#set ( $members = $userAccessor.getMemberNamesAsList($userAccessor.getGroup("confluence-users")) )

<style>
select:required:invalid {
  color: gray;
}
option[value=""][disabled] {
  display: none;
}
option {
  color: black;
}
</style>

<form class="aui" onsubmit="return false;">
    <fieldset>
        <div class="field-group">
            <label for="users-list">Users:</label>
            <select class="select" id="users-list" name="users-list" title="users list" required>
                <option value="" disabled selected>Select a user</option>
            </select>
        </div>
    </fieldset>
</form>

<script>
    var members = {
    #foreach ( $member in $members )
        #set ( $member = $userAccessor.getUserByName($member) )
        "$member.fullName": "$member.name", 
    #end
    }
    
    function sortObject(obj) {
        return Object.keys(obj).sort().reduce(function (result, key) {
            result[key] = obj[key];
            return result;
        }, {});
    }
    var sortedMembers = sortObject(members);
    for (var key in sortedMembers) {
        if (sortedMembers.hasOwnProperty(key)) {
            jQuery("#users-list").append('<option value="' + sortedMembers[key] + '">' + key + '</option>');
        }
    }
</script>
