User Interface Support

The UI Support element allows you to define how your content property field will be presented in the CQL Builder.

When you define UI support for a field, then the CQL builder will include it in all CQL features in Confluence, including other CQL based macros.

See the content property key documentation for a complete content property example.

Description

As well as providing a text field and allowing any entry, the UI support system provides a number of build in components that can enrich the user experience. These provide extra user interface components to allow setting or picking their value in an intuitive way.

The type can be one of the following values:

  • space - provides a space picker and stores the result space key as the result.
  • label - provides a label picker and stores the list of labels as the result.
  • user - provides a user picker and stores the username as the result.
  • contentId - provides a content picker and stores the content id as the result.
  • contentType - provides a content type picker.
  • date - provides a date picker
  • string - provides a free form text field
  • number - provides a free form text field


dataUri
Type
Description

If provided, the CQL builder will provide a drop down and use this url to find the list of value values. This URL should return a json array of objects describing the valid options.

 [
   {"id": "value1", "text": "First Option"},
   {"id": "value2", "text": "Second Option"}
 ]
 

NOTE: since the call to this URL will be made from the user's browser, you need to enable CORS headers for responses to this resource.

Setting a Access-Control-Allow-Origin header to the URL of the Atlassian Cloud instance where this add-on is installed is usually enough to satisfy the CORS requirements. This can be done by tracking the client key and its url in your /installed callback, then looking up the url when the request is made.


defaultOperator
Type
Max length

Description

The CQL builder will use this operator when constructing the CQL string.
