Unescape confiforms asUserLink Edited

Hello,

I am using Vertunas ConfiForms plugin and I want to render a user as a link. I am using ConfiForms VirtualFunctions (Virtual Functions) - asUserLink

The page is rendered with escaped html code of the link like this:

If it was unescaped it would be exactly what I want:

image2017-2-3 9:49:22.png

This is how the page's source looks like

<p class="auto-cursor-target">
  <br/>
</p>
<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="2c1d62fa-392d-4e82-a92a-58a6bf7a47a7" ac:name="confiform-list" ac:schema-version="1">
  <ac:parameter ac:name="filter">id:9a09ab10-47f0-409f-8a16-536b1d0e3776</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="pageTitle">
    <ac:link>
      <ri:page ri:content-title="testPage"/>
    </ac:link>
  </ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="formName">bboard</ac:parameter>
  <ac:rich-text-body>
    <p>
      <ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="88976837-9c87-4752-b514-565c11ef8af8" ac:name="confiform-field" ac:schema-version="1">
        <ac:parameter ac:name="fieldName">person.asUserLink</ac:parameter>
      </ac:structured-macro>
    </p>
  </ac:rich-text-body>
</ac:structured-macro>
<p class="auto-cursor-target">
  <br/>
</p>

 

I have tried inserting the macro into an HTML macro:

<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="56c62df5-589e-42ee-8eda-92a43702624f" ac:name="html" ac:schema-version="1">
      <ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="88976837-9c87-4752-b514-565c11ef8af8" ac:name="confiform-field" ac:schema-version="1">
        <ac:parameter ac:name="fieldName">person.asUserLink</ac:parameter>
      </ac:structured-macro>
</ac:structured-macro>

 

but it didn't work.

 

I was thinking about generating user id:

<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="88976837-9c87-4752-b514-565c11ef8af8" ac:name="confiform-field" ac:schema-version="1">
        <ac:parameter ac:name="fieldName">person.id</ac:parameter>
      </ac:structured-macro>

and transforming it into a link with another macro, but I don't know how to get just the value do that,

 

Thank you very much!

Hi Miroslav

 

When used inside the ListView, the appropriate function would be "asUserLinkMacro"

 

<p class="auto-cursor-target">
  <br/>
</p>
<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="2c1d62fa-392d-4e82-a92a-58a6bf7a47a7" ac:name="confiform-list" ac:schema-version="1">
  <ac:parameter ac:name="filter">id:9a09ab10-47f0-409f-8a16-536b1d0e3776</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="pageTitle">
    <ac:link>
      <ri:page ri:content-title="testPage"/>
    </ac:link>
  </ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="formName">bboard</ac:parameter>
  <ac:rich-text-body>
    <p>
      [entry.person.asUserLinkMacro]
    </p>
  </ac:rich-text-body>
</ac:structured-macro>
<p class="auto-cursor-target">
  <br/>
</p>

Thank you, it works as i've expected

I also tried to use asUserLinkMacro, but the only thing I get is one large string with all the participants (without empty spaces). I tried to use this 'rich-text-body'-thing but confluence won't accept this. Any other suggestions?

May be you can share the configuration you have, or better to recreate a simplified version to demonstrate the issue you are talking about?

 

Thanks

Alex

Hi,

Here you see the html for the trial I made. (I didn't use html to make this, but just the built in Macro.)

 <ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="d93b2d67-9eac-40ec-ae57-1a55edcc46f2" ac:name="confiform-field" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="fieldName">ja</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="atlassian-macro-output-type">BLOCK</ac:parameter>
</ac:structured-macro>
<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="f1b83a4e-6223-4117-98c2-43ea8feda9de" ac:name="confiform-field" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="overrideFormat">asUserLink</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="fieldName">ja</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="atlassian-macro-output-type">BLOCK</ac:parameter>
</ac:structured-macro>

It looks like this:

asUserLink.png

This is the configuration I used. I tried a lot of diffrent things.

asUserLink2.png

If I try to adjust the html-code with the rich-body-text, it doesn't help.

Hopefully this is clear to you.

Greetings,

Hanne

Virtual functions don't work like that and certainly it is not something to be placed in "override output format"

 

You just put the expression in the field name parameter in ConfiForms Field macro

<ac:parameter ac:name="fieldName">ja.asUserLink</ac:parameter>
