Table Filter Plugin: "Setting the Cell Value Delimiter" for Status Macros Edited

Matthias Born Jun 06, 2018

Hello Stilsoft,

we are using multiple status-macros within one cell. If we set the filter for this column to "Dropdown filter columns", the status values are concatinated. A dropdown option is generated for each status value combination.

Is there a way to separate them?

Perhaps with line-breaks, but in that case i have no idea what value i have to add to "Setting the Cell Value Delimiter"

Regards!

Matthias

  • And, as an afterthougth: What's the delemiter for a simple confluence list?

Hello Matthias,

There are no line-breaks in html, only block tags that look like line-breaks.

You can use either a white space character (enter \u0020 code) if statuses do not contain spaces, or separate statuses with commas for example.

Also there are no delimiters for lists or any other html tags.

Hello Andrey!

I can't agree with your linebreak statement since there's an <br/> element. That's what i ment. Try Shift+Enter in Confluence Editor and you will see the difference.

To my initial question: Thank you, \u0020 works fine: My status macros are recognized in the dropdown filter even if there are more than one status-macro in one cell.

I have to replace spaces with "-" in the status text, but i can live with that.

Perhaps you may consider extending the options for "Setting the Cell Value Delimiter"?
It would be nice if the drowdown would recognize <br>, paragraphs and lists.
That would make the dropdown filter very powerfull.

Thank u!

Matthias

I meant there are no line-break characters in html, but tags only. And Table Filter works with text and not html, that's why it is not possible to use line-breaks as delimiters. 

I've added your feature request to our backlog, thank you!

Hi, 

we're have a table with multiple values in a cell as well, separated by spaces as seems to be the standard for jira issue filter macro. I tried the  \u0020, but it doesn't work. Any suggestions ?

 

Is there a way to have the jira issue filter separate values by commas ?

Hi Christoph,

Did you set \u0020 in the "Cell value delimiter" parameter of Table Filter macro?

Christoph Spuhler Mar 29, 2019

Yes, I did. It doesn't change anything

Andrey Khaneev Mar 29, 2019

It should work... Please, contact StiltSoft support to resolve the issue.
