check confluence account status in ConfiForms

I am collecting inputs and assign them to users stored in another form. If a user in that form is no longer active, I'll prevent new entries being entered that'd be assigned to him/her.

On a confluence page you just type "@..." to see if anything comes up. Does anyone know if it's possible to check this in ConfiForms?

User (and multi-user) fields in ConfiForms use the same API as user mentions and provide the same result

Also it might be a good idea to check if the user (username value) is in security group - 

  • userInSecurityGroup

  • securityGroupHas

This can be done by using the 


Hi Alex.

How does the first method work?

My working table has a smart classifier that reads a source table which contains a column of users. Once a selection is made, I copy the user in that column into a json and call the jira api. So if the user is invalid, jira fails.

I tried to copy the user from the source table into my current table using a field definition rule:


I was hoping that this would be unsuccessful if user is not valid. But the field Assignee is blindly populated as the classifier is picked. I guess option 2 could have worked as a condition in the field definition rule but we don't use security groups.


Add validation rule and condition that checks in the user you have registered in the table/form is still in the Confluence group (in the rule you define a "failing condition") Here, I am checking if the user is in confluence-users group (actually NOT in the group)



Hi Alex,

This wouldn't work since we do not have confluence security groups.

BTW, where can I read more about these security groups?


Hard to believe... how do you manage permissions and restrictions if you are not using user security groups!? 



We do have user groups but I wasn't sure if it's the same as what you call user security group.

Anyway, your condition worked. I was using the following and it doesn't work:


When is "[entry" needed?


"[entry" is needed when you want to retrieve the value of a field or evaluate expression


Makes sense as you check the field  somefield against the value in "anotherfield"
