Is there a way in Confluence to reveal only certain columns from a table for public view?
There’s a situation in my group where in a table with many columns, some of the columns are private info while the rest of the columns are okay for the public. Any ideas on how to dice this?
I tried using:
designation on select private columns and nothing happened!
Hello Udhaya Kulandaivelu,
I'm afraid to say that we do not have this level of customization where you can set selected content of a public page into private, but I agree with you that this feature would be useful, and Atlassian too.
They raised the suggestion CONF-42844 - Possibility to turn private selected content in a public page regarding your request, please vote on it, to increase the suggestion visibility and you can set yourself as watcher to receive notifications about any updates on this page.
Feel free to add comments on this suggestion if you think that you have any information to improve the suggestion or explaining how it can be useful for your environment.
not a definitive answer but can you use the Excerpt and Excerpt Include macros somehow?? Might not wok well as part of a table
But perhaps in your public page have a table but in the private page have the Excerpt Include from the public page plus a second table??
Does sound a tad messy ....
For conditional formatting in Confluence you may use CelesteCS Conditions for Confluence.
Assume you need to set a specific background color for some values on your table, for example, for 'Yes' make it light-green and for 'No' make it light-red. You just put your table into Conditional Rules Manager macro and add two Conditional Rule macros to specify rules of type 'Element Value Is Equal To', which is by default. In one of the rules you specify 'Value 1' = 'Yes' and 'Background color' = 'highlight-green' and in another one 'Value 1' = 'No' and 'Background color' = 'highlight-red'. That's it! The cells will be formatted appropriately.
As you see, it's very simple - just add a couple of macros and configure it properly. No need for doing it manually, writing user macros or use source code editors.
There are more than a dozen of conditional rule types supported. Plus, you may replace the text, not just to format it.
We are the CelesteCS Conditions for Confluence plugin vendor, so you may contact us directly if you have any additional questions or suggestions.
