Hi @Alex Medved

It' really a nice plugin. I have a feature request if possible.
When I use Calendar View and double click on a date, my date picker field on form get that specific date as default value. Is it possible now?

@Alex Medved

Could you help me about using this functionality:

I need to restrict editing to confluence-administrators users and I use this in hide control of edit macro:

but it dosen't work.

Thank you fo your feature request, we will look into extending the CalendarView to implement this functionality.


As for your second question - the correct expression filter would be 


Hi Alex

Thanks for your fast responce.

This doesn't work for me.
I need to restrict edit control to current user if

1- his/her name picked in a single user picker


2- belong to confluence-administrator group.

I use this expression 

  • !myuserpickerfieldname:[entry._user] OR _user.userInSecurityGroup(confluence-administrators):true

in Hide controls when stored data (for given record) matches this criteria field

and this

  • myuserpickerfieldname:[entry._user] OR _user.userInSecurityGroup(confluence-administrators):true

in Visible only to groups/users field in ‘Edit Controls for ConfiForms’ Macro and no one work.


Could you correct my expression?

The requirements you put should be implemented differently.  As you are missing one core concept in ConfiForms - record ownership.


Each record in ConfiForms has a metadata field called "ownedBy" to hold the owner of the record. See ConfiForms Documentation

You shall have this field updated with ConfiForms IFTTT on create/ on update events with the value from your "myuserpickerfieldname" field

This will ensure the record is only editable by this person

Additionally, you need to set restrictions on the page with ConfiForms to be editable only by your "confluence-administrators" group

This way, you will ensure who are the form administrators and form administrators could edit any record within the form
