Subscribe to a Network RSS Feed

You can create an RSS Feed from any user's network view, allowing you to receive summaries on the activities of users they are following in their network. The types of activities tracked in these RSS feed summaries include:

Subscribe to a user's network feed

To subscribe to a user's network RSS feed:

  1. Locate the RSS icon , which is available from the top-right of:
    • The 'Recent activity of the users you are following' section of your network page, or
    • The 'Activity of followed users' section of another user's network page.
  2. Copy and paste the icon's link into your RSS newsreader

Customise your network RSS feed

Confluence does not provide a way of customising a network RSS feed via the user interface. However, you can modify the maximum number of results and type of content displayed in these feeds by directly editing the RSS feed link in your RSS newsreader.

To modify the maximum number of results displayed in your RSS feed:

  1. Edit the RSS feed link in your RSS newsreader.
  2. Change the value of the max parameter from its default value of 40 to a value of your choice. Example:

    http://confluence.atlassian.com/feeds/network.action?username=MYNAME&max=60&publicFeed=false&os_authType=basic&rssType=atom
  3. Save the modified link in your RSS newsreader.

To modify the type of content displayed in your RSS feed:

  1. Edit the RSS feed link in your RSS newsreader.
  2. Append the parameter contentType to the end of the link, followed by an equals sign (=) and then add the appropriate content type value of your choice:

    • USER_STATUS — restricts the RSS feed to user status updates.
    • PAGE — restricts the RSS feed to page additions or updates.
    • BLOG — restricts the RSS feed to blog post additions or updates.
    • ATTACHMENT — restricts the RSS feed to attachment additions or updates.
    • COMMENT — restricts the RSS feed to comment additions or updates.

    Content type values are case-sensitive. Ensure that each parameter is separated from the other by an ampersand (&).
    Example:

    http://confluence.atlassian.com/feeds/network.action?username=ggaskell&max=40&publicFeed=false&os_authType=basic&rssType=atom&contentType=USER_STATUS


  3. Save the modified link in your RSS newsreader.

Notes

It is not possible to filter for more than one type of content by adding multiple values to the contentType parameter.
