View Space Activity

Space activity information is disabled by default, and the 'Activity' tab won't be visible unless the Confluence Usage Stats plugin is enabled. See notes below.

If enabled, the space activity screen displays statistics on the activity in each space. These include:

  • How many pages and blog posts have been viewed, added or updated over a given period.
  • Which content is the most popular (most frequently viewed).
  • Which content is the most active (most frequently edited).
  • Which people are the most active contributors/editors of content.

To view the activity in a space:

  1. Go to the space and choose Space Tools at the bottom of the sidebar
  2. Choose Activity

You'll see a graphic display of the number of pages and blog posts that have been viewed, added, and edited, showing trends over a period of time.

In addition to the graphical representation of Views and Edits,  the top ten most popular and most active pages and/or blog posts will be listed, with a link to each.

  • To view Space Activity the  Confluence Usage Stats  system plugin must be enabled. This plugin is known to cause performance problems on large installations and in Confluence Cloud, and is disabled by default. System administrators can enable this plugin (go to add-ons, select System add-ons and search for 'Confluence Usage Stats').

  • The plugin collects data only when it's activated.
  • If you're using Confluence Data Center, space activity information isn't available. 

  • Page hits aren't unique - the graph on the Space Activity screen includes all page hits, including multiple visits by the same user.
  • The Activity tab does not appear in spaces that use the Documentation theme.
