Granting access to the Space Report

You can grant access to the Space Report to users without space administrator rights. This has been a feature since version 7.

  1. Click on ⚙ Space Tools → Analytics Cockpit → Settings.

  2. In the field "Report Access", start typing the name of a Confluence user group. The group will be saved automatically.

  3. Members of the selected group can now access the Space Report by clicking on ⚙ Space Tools → Analytics Cockpit. They can, however, not access the settings.


  • If you need more than one user group to see the Space Report, you can use the Space Analytics Macro anywhere you like. However, this macro only shows the graph without the table "Viewed content" and "Viewers".

  • If you want to grant users access to the Global Report instead, read the Global Report documentation.

Filtering the Space Report Overview


If you are interested in specific sources or other metrics, you can use the pre-defined filters:

  • Filter by content type (page vs. blog post)

  • Filter by source; see Source Tracking

  • Filter by user’s login type: Select “Logged-in Users” or “Anonymous Users”.

You can also enter your own CQL filter.

Tap the "Filters" button and enter a valid CQL query. You can read all about advanced searching using CQL on Atlassian's documentation.

Example: You want to filter for pages carrying the label "meeting-notes". You enter this string into the CQL Filter and tap “Apply”.

label = "meeting-notes"

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.

Content & Usage Report: Content & Users

Select the tabs “Content” or “Users” for a detailed report.

Read all about the report on the dedicated pages:

Attachments Report

By selecting the tab “Attachments”, you will see a list of viewed attachments within the selected space.

The graph and table can be adjusted by selecting a different date range (default = 30 days).

The type of attachments displayed in the list depends on the Attachment Tracking Settings.

Settings and filters:

  • Use the search field to search for specific attachments.

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

  • Below the graph, there is a drop-down menu listing the available metrics. By default, “Views” are selected. Select the metrics you want to appear in the graph.


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.

    Grouping metrics in the graph (drop-down menu)


  • 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 Space 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 Global Report or back to the Space 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.

    Breadcrumb to other reports


  • 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.


(info) 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.


Exporting reports

You can export the content data in the Space Report as a CSV file; see Export Data.
