Perform manipulation or calculations on JSON table fields - 8.x

Overview

This page shows how to use Augments for field manipulation or calculations when using the JSON Table macro, which is part of the Advanced Tables for Confluence app. In this example, we use Groovy scripting to do field modification based on the field data. This is just a simple example of the technique.

Scripting is expensive, so make sure you surround the JSON Table macro with the Cache macro and/or the Future macro to minimize response time for the page.
