Accessing the Global Report
You can access the Global Report via ⚙→ Analytics Cockpit
The menu “Global Content Report” focuses on the content (pages, blog posts, spaces). See below for options in the Global Content Report.
You need to be a Confluence Administrator to access this data.
Alternatively, a Confluence Administrator can grant access to the Global Report by adding users to a dedicated group in Viewtracker's settings.

Filtering the Global Content Report
If you are interested in specific spaces, sources or other metrics, you can use the pre-defined filters:
Filter by space (type at least two characters of your space name)
Filter by space status (current vs. archived spaces)
Filter by content type (page vs. blog post)
Filter by source; see Source Tracking
You can also enter your own CQL filter.
Just click on the "Filters" button and enter a valid CQL query. You can read all about advanced searching using CQL on Atlassian's documentation.
For example, filter for pages edited by user "edmond".
Info on CQL Filter
To avoid performance problems, the CQL filter will only work for a maximum of 10 000 results.
The filter(s) will also be present in the Export.
Changing the date range and graph type
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.
You can display the numbers as a line chart (default), bar chart, or area chart.
Choosing which metrics to display in the graph
Below the graph, there is a drop-down menu listing the available metrics. By default, “Views”, “Creations” and “Edits” 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.
Navigating to other reports
You can access many other Viewtracker reports out of the Global Report.
Tap on any page name in the “Top content” column. This will open an overlay with the Content Report of that specific page. The breadcrumbs lead you to the Space Report (in which the page is located) or back to the Global Report.
The entry on the right side of the breadcrumb is the page/blog post name. Tapping the name will open the page in a new tab so you can access its content.
Tap the link next to “Top Content” in the header to access the detailed content report.
Tap the link next to the “Top Viewers” in the header to access the detailed user report.
The date range and metric grouping selected in one report will automatically be adapted to the other reports.
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&contentType=blog.
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.
