Search Report as part of Global Report of Viewtracker

How to access the Search Report

Access the report via Confluence Settings Analytics Cockpit - Search Report

The Search Report consists of

  • a graph showing the overall number of searches over the selected timeframe (default: last 30 days)

  • a table listing

    • search terms: what your users inserted into the search field.

    • number of results: how many results Confluence found for that particular search term.

    • number of searches: how often users carried out this particular search.

Search Settings

Click on the "Settings" button ⚙ on the Search Report. Here, you can specify

  • the minimum length of a search term

  • if numbers in searches should be included or ignored.

Changing the date range

  • As a default, the data from the last 30 days are displayed. You can change that by clicking into the date field and selecting a different date range. All metrics will adapt automatically.

  • You can group the metrics in the graph by using “Group by” days (default), weeks, months, or years.

    Grouping metrics in the graph (drop-down menu)


Choosing which metrics to display in the graph

Below the graph, there is a drop-down menu listing the available metrics. By default, “Searches” are selected.

Select the metrics you want to appear in the graph, and the graph will adapt automatically. Viewtracker saves the metric selection; whenever you access the report in the future, the selected metrics will be displayed in the graph.

Saving and sharing reports

Once you’ve applied a filter or changed the report's date range, the report’s URL will adapt with parameters like ?dateValue=this.week&searchText=priva.

This is useful for the following reasons:

  • You can copy and share the URL with co-workers with the same access permission.

  • You can save the URL to access a customized report quickly.
