      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Allow for access to common variables for use in Blueprints templates through the template editor, eg:

      1. Current date
      2. Current time
      3. Author
      4. User
      5. System baseUrl

      Eg this could be used to create a Blueprint which creates pages with Title:
      2013-08-27: <user>'s Notes

      Hi all,

      Thanks for your interest in this issue.

      Unfortunately, this suggestion isn't currently on our roadmap - we’re instead focusing on bringing you a new search experience, and are investigating improvements to permissions.

      We do though understand the value that common variables in Blueprints would bring - we'll typically review this request at least once a year, at which point we’ll consider whether we need to alter its status. 

      There is an add-on available in our Marketplace which provides a solution to this problem - Blueprint Creator. I’m aware this isn’t optimal, but wanted to draw your attention to the workaround nonetheless.

      I apologise for the disappointment and will ensure we provide you with an update on this feature request within the next 12 months.
