Upgrading Visibility add-on leads to the error @authenticated is not a valid user
In older versions of Visibility (version 4.2.2 or below), users were able to configure
user = @authenticated. This will allow users to show/hide if they were authenticated. However, in the latest version (version 5.0 and above), the parameter needs to be changed to be
special = @authenticated.
Therefore, in the latest version, there will be an error inlineExtensionif the configuration is
user = @authenticated.
Visibility 5.0 and above
Macro parameters have changed.
The workaround would be to replace
special=@authenticated using an add-on called Search and Replace.
Install Search and Replace
Navigate to General configuration > Search and Replace
Select "Search and Replace with REGEX"
Enter the following text in Search (with Regex) for the parameter:
<ac:parameter ac:name="user"><ri:user ri:username="@authenticated" /></ac:parameter>CODE
Enter the following text in *Replace With* parameter
Click on Replace All
