Using the Confluence Groovy script macro, how do I get the logged in user and full page url?

When I am in the Groovy Macro within a confluence page, how do I get the logged in user name and the full page URL?

I see examples for the Run or user macros, but I am within the Groovy Script macro.


Thanks in advance.

You didn't specify the plugin you are using so I'll give you the answer for ScriptRunner for Confluence... it's probably the same for others.

Get the current user with:

import com.atlassian.confluence.user.AuthenticatedUserThreadLocal

AuthenticatedUserThreadLocal.get() // gets the current user

Not sure why you need the full page URL, normally you get what you need from the context:

import com.atlassian.confluence.plugin.descriptor.web.WebInterfaceContext

(context as WebInterfaceContext).get...

You may be able to get the page URL with:

import com.opensymphony.webwork.ServletActionContext

def request = ServletActionContext.getRequest()

(untested)... and there will not always be an http request.
