Unlock data and insights about your site
For DATA CENTER
You can now export current state data from Confluence, and then feed it into your favourite business intelligence platform (such as Tableau or PowerBI). With this data you can:
- generate reports and visualizations of your users’ activity
- provide organization leaders with a better understanding of how their teams use Confluence
- make decisions about optimizing or cleaning up Confluence
The raw data includes things like titles, URLs, users, creation and modification dates for pages, attachments, and comments.
You can trigger the export of current state data from Confluence via the REST API, and view the status of your exports at > Data pipeline. > General Configuration
The initial export can take some time, and there's some performance and security considerations for you to be aware of, before kicking off your first export.
Diagnostic information now included in thread dumps
For DATA CENTER SERVER
If Confluence is experiencing problems, Atlassian Support may ask for a set of thread dumps to help diagnose the problem.
We now include the username and request URL in thread names, which can help us identify and troubleshoot issues faster.
This is turned on by default. If you don’t want to include these details, you can switch off diagnostics at > Troubleshooting and support tools > General Configuration > Thread diagnostics.
For full details of bugs fixed and suggestions resolved, head to Jira.
