Atlassian Connect - Hide webPanel in Confluence's page edit mode


we are working on a Connect Express app that shows a webPanel all around Confluence. We would like to avoid showing the webPanel when editing a page and / or blog post, but we are not finding a way to do that.

We’ve been looking at conditions, expecially entity_property_equal_to, but we didn’t find any content property that indicates it’s currently in edit mode.

Have you got any hint or solution for this?

Thank you.

Hi @AndreaRinaldi ,

I don’t think there is any way to achieve this. I think this might be related to this other conversation here where I can see you added a comment a few months ago.

The condition that can be used to distinguish between a page in editing mode versus a page in viewing mode is the following:

"conditions": [
     "condition": "viewing_content"

However, this is only working in locations like the one but not the atl.general, which sounds like what you are after.

Yes, correct.

Anyway, thank you for the confirmation! We’re gonna make some trick under the hood: deplorable, but at least we reach the goal.
