For Developers

Velocity macro to display users and groups

We extracted the code that displays in view mode a property of type 'List of Users' and 'List of Groups' from the corresponding custom displayers (found in displayer_users.vm and displayer_groups.vm) into two Velocity macros that can be used to display arbitrary users and groups, even when you don't have an object. Here's how you can use them:

{{velocity}}
{{html wiki="true"}}
= Users =
== Just one ==
#displayUser('XWiki.Admin')

== List of users ==
#displayUser(['Admin', 'XWiki.mflorea'])

== A reference of a user ==
#displayUser($xcontext.userReference)

== A list of references of users ==
#displayUser([$xcontext.userReference, $otherUserReference])

= Groups =
== Just one ==
#displayGroup('XWiki.XWikiAdminGroup')

== List of groups ==
#displayGroup(['XWikiAdminGroup','XWiki.HRGroup'])

== A reference of a group ==
#set($adminGroupRef = $services.model.resolveDocument('XWiki.XWikiAdminGroup'))
#set($allGroupRef = $services.model.resolveDocument('XWiki.XWikiAllGroup'))
#displayGroup($adminGroupRef)

== A list of references of groups ==
#displayGroup([$adminGroupRef, $allGroupRef])

General Notes

When upgrading make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg, xwiki.properties and web.xml files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or added. Note that you should add xwiki.store.migration=1 so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
