Hi,

after upgrading to Confluence 7 all user macros using something like:

$loginManager.getLoginInfo($user).getLastSuccessfulLoginDate()

don't seem to work anymore. The API clearly state that there is not change:

https://docs.atlassian.com/ConfluenceServer/javadoc/7.3.2/com/atlassian/confluence/security/login/LoginManager.html

Any known workaround or shall I file a bug with Atlassian?

Best

I am seeing this behavior as well.

I have a user macro that reports last login date of users which is also using 'loginManager.getLoginInfo' and when we upgraded to Confluence 7 it stopped working. 

Can someone please help to understand what has changed so I can fix our macro?  

Thanks!

Atlassian beefed up the security by not allowing the use of sone java packages in velocity scripts. You can either write a macro using ScriptRunner which allows such things or switch off / allow the use of these packages in the velocity.properties configuration.

aha!  thanks for the update!

Good to know it wasn't my macro itself that failed.  I will check out the other options.

Thanks again,

Greg

I modified CONFLUENCE_INSTALL/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/velocity.properties and made two changes:

#introspector.restrict.packages = java.lang.reflect,\

introspector.restrict.packages = \

and

#introspector.restrict.classes = java.lang.Class,\

#java.lang.ClassLoader,\

introspector.restrict.classes = \

I recently upgraded to 7.18.2 and this macro isn't working for me.  I tried the updates to velocity. properties too and that did not work.  Any other suggestions?
