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:

To subscribe to a user's network RSS feed,

  1. Locate the following 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.
  3. To have your newsreader log into Confluence, you can add your username and password to the feed URL.
    (warning) Please note that if you do this, someone with access to your RSS newsreader configuration can read these Confluence authentication details.

Customising your Network RSS Feed

Currently, Confluence does not provide a user interface mechanism for customising your network RSS feed. 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. The following example shows this parameter-value combination highlighted in red:
    http://confluence.atlassian.com/feeds/network.action?username=ggaskell&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.
    (info) Content type values are case-sensitive and when editing the network RSS feed link, ensure that each parameter is separated from the other by an ampersand (&).
    The following example shows the content type parameter-value combination highlighted in red:
    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.

Filtering for more than one type of content (by adding multiple values to the contentType parameter) is not supported.
