Applying filter on Smart Classifier

I have a Confluence page with a Confiform A with a column c. It is set up as a smart classifier to look up c values in Confiform B. Now Confiform B actually has 2 columns : username and c. What I want to achieve is depending who the current user is, the smart classifier will only contain c's which have been set up specifically for the current user.

You have tagged the question as for confluence cloud, but ConfiForms does not have a smart classifier field in Confluence cloud at the moment. This field type is available only in server/data center versions of the app.

To answer your question - you need to add a ConfiForms Field Definition Rule macro with action "Apply filter on field" to filter the choices of your smart classifier

See this quick demo:

Thanks Alex. That solution will allow the user to pick a user other than himself/herself. Whereas, my intended solution is not to give them that ability, but rather check who the current logged-in user is, and apply a filter based on that.

The demo I have recorded for you does EXACTLY that - filters out choices based on current logged in used. Have a look

Thanks Alex. Works like a charm.

And if I want to add a Confiform TableView at the bottom of the form to show all records created for which the current user has permission, do I add condition to "Filter to apply on entire dataset"?

Yes, you can filter records created by the user by setting the filtering expression in "Filter to apply on entire dataset" parameter

Something like
