How can I secure PocketQuery add-on to select users or groups within Confluence? I have written sql for administrative reporting but do not want anyone who has a Confluence license be able to access it. How can I not make it appear under 'other macros'?
It's currently not possible to restrict a query to a single user or a group. I recommend that you use the "space" attribute in your query. See https://www.scandio.de/atlassian/en/plugins/pocketquery . This allows you to restrict a query to a defined Confluence Space. To hide the macro in the macro browser does not make sense because then you'll hide for all users.
Thanks for the reply. Your statement - "To hide the macro in the macro browser does not make sense because then you'll hide for all users." I was inquiring if the macro could be hidden from the general user so any user couldn't add it since I have written sql queries for gathering statistics for management and want to prevent performance issues if a lot of users add it. I was wondering if the macro could be secure to administration only.
Because of this kind of requirements we added the space security feature.
Then it is not possible to use the queries in other spaces. Because your idea is interesting for other customers we added it to our product backlog.
