Creating a Systems Article Template

For the Systems article, we will create a form with some text-data blocks and some drop-down menus using list-data and list-option blocks.

For the name of product, report on the page's title (Optional). 

For the product type, create a drop-down menu to choose between hardware or software, describing the nature of the system.

Create a text-data block for the product description:

Note that the parameter type=line means this is a single line input.

Next, create a drop-down menu to choose from a list of administrators/managers that may be the product owner.

See that we no longer have to create multiple list-option blocks to list specific users in Confluence. Nest the user-options block inside the list-data block, and then choose an existing user group in Confluence for the group parameter. 

The drop-down menu will list all the users from the chosen user group, like this:

Create a text-data block for a link to the product:

Create a drop-down menu for the identity provider of the product:

And now, some support contact information, using list-data and user-options block:

For the support contact field, choose type=autocomplete pameter to input user names like this:

Finally, learn how you can a create a new article with this template in this tutorial.
