In Confluence Cloud, my Recents list under search is correct and current. But when I'm editing I like using the Recently Viewed list when creating links, and that list is so far from reality, I've had to rely on Search instead. Is there something I can do to get Recently Viewed working again?
I have not verified this problem with any of my coworkers, but it has been a problem for at least a few months, regardless of workstation or browser.
I tested this on our Cloud instance - it does show the last 50 issues you viewed (aside the one you're editing if it's part of the list) - just not in the recently viewed order.
The search query it's using is:
issuekey in issueHistory()
Were it to put it in the right order, it'd need to use:
issuekey in issueHistory() ORDER BY lastViewed DESC
On Server it appears the latter query is what is used - see this page - but not on Cloud, where the former is used.
Interesting. I hadn't noticed that the list had any logic to it, but I think you've got it right. The list makes more sense in reverse order. Unfortunately, this doesn't appear to be something I can change as an administrator of a cloud environment, and getting to the bottom of the list is more work than searching. Is there a correct way to submit a feature request to Atlassian?
