Unlock data and insights about your site


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 Administration  > General Configuration > Data pipeline

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


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 Administration  > General Configuration > Troubleshooting and support tools > Thread diagnostics.
