Restrict viewing of a macro's content

I included column macros in Confluence pages and I would like to know if it is possible to restrict the content of a column macro to some users only? I use the column macro to insert buttons on pages and I need to restrict the viewing of some buttons. Any idea?

We tried to use the Visibility Plugin and we got an error message: The license could not be verified: There is no license certificate installed for CustomWare Visibility Plugin for Confluence.

We don't understand as it is a free plugin.

Contact ServiceRocket (formerly CustomWare).

You have to go to ServiceRocket's site and create an account to get the free license.

It would be hard to filter by groups, but if it is only a few users that you want to restrict or allow, you can use this user macro that will filter by username.

For each of these macros, select "Rendered" for Macro Body Processing.

This macro will restrict viewing to only those usernames that you enter in the options:

## @param allowedusers:title=Allowed Users|type=string|desc=Users allowed to view


This macro will allow viewing by all usernames except those that you enter in the options:

## @param blockedusers:title=Blocked Users|type=string|desc=Users to block from viewing


Just insert the content you want to restrict in the body of the macro, and put the usernames that you want to restrict in the macro options (you can separate the usernames by spaces, commas, whatever you want). Hope that helps!


we will test your solution, thank you.
