Confluence Plugins

Hi Atlassians,

We have list of few plugins available in our Confluence. We are using old version of Confluence (5.4.x). I know that we are using oldest version of confluence. Anyway, we are setting up a new environment of confluence(6.10) in couple of weeks.

I need to analyze the list of plugins that are mandatory to have them in our new version as well. Also I need to find whether anyone is using specific plugin(from the user-installed) plugins.

For ex: if I take "Gliffy diagrams for Confluence" plugin, I could see a section as shown in the image below

Gliffy.JPG

I am able to see few Gliffy diagrams created in there. So, this plugin is mandatory as users are using it.

But for few plugins I am not able to see sections like this(ex. Angular JS integration plugin, Bob Swift plugin etc)

Finally, I have 2 questions below.

1. How can we find whether a specific plugin is actively being used by any user ?

2. How can we find which plugins are not needed from the list of plugins available from the "User-installed" addons section.

Thanks a lot !!

Best Regards,

Nav

In the most recent versions of Confluence there is a report in Confluence Administration that can tell you which plugins that have macros that are being used on pages. However, since you are not on a newer version of Confluence you do not have that report. However, I wrote a user macro a few years ago that can give you that kind of report. Here is the code to set it up. Simply create the user macro in Confluence Administration -> User Macros and them put the macro on a page.

Macro Name:
macro_usage

Macro Title:
Macro Usage

Macro Body Processing:
No macro body

Template:

## Developed by: Davin Studer
## Date created: 12/17/2014
## @param Space:title=Space|type=spacekey|desc=This will restrict the macro usage report to a specific space.

#set($containerManagerClass = $content.class.forName('com.atlassian.spring.container.ContainerManager'))
#set($getInstanceMethod = $containerManagerClass.getDeclaredMethod('getInstance',null))
#set($containerManager = $getInstanceMethod.invoke(null,null))
#set($containerContext = $containerManager.containerContext)
#set($macroBrowserManager = $containerContext.getComponent('macroBrowserManager'))
#set($allMacros = $macroBrowserManager.getMacroSummaries())

#########################################################################################
## This is used for getting around velocity issues when writing jQuery.                ##
#########################################################################################
#set( $d = '$' )

#########################################################################################
## Populate the macro information into a string that we will use as a JS object array. ##
#########################################################################################
#set ($i = 0)
#set($macroObjects = "")
#foreach($macro in $allMacros)
  #if($i != 0)
    #set($macroObjects = $macroObjects + ",")
  #end
  #set($macroObjects = $macroObjects + "{title:'" + $macro.getTitle().getKey().replace("'","\'") + "', name:'" + $macro.getMacroName().replace("'","\'") + "'}")
#set ($i = $i + 1)
#end

## Decide which space to search.                                                       ##

Thanks a lot for your response Davin. Appreciate your hard work in writing the script as well.
