Known issues

  1. Handy Poll can't be voted or viewed by anonymous users in Confluence. If you have anonymous access to a Confluence page with Handy Poll, it will not be displayed to non-Confluence users. They will see a message informing about the necessity to log in.
  2. Handy Poll  votes can’t be submitted on the page with edit restrictions. You will see the endless spinner when submitting the vote on a page with Confluence edit restrictions. This issue is caused by the fact that Confluence REST API doesn't return the macro data to the app. The suggested workaround is to use Handy Poll on pages without restrictions.

Bug Bounty Program - Out-of-scope Issues

You can edit the page markdown of a Confluence page where the Handy Poll macro resides. This way, you can change the names of variants and fake the voting results.

This issue will not be addressed, and you should not use the Handy Poll macro for voting on serious topics in your Confluence Cloud.

Changes in the page markdown will be reflected in the page history.
