Activity Stream in Confluence showing Current User activities?


I am looking for a way to show the current logged in user's activities in a space dashboard. But I cannot get the built-in Confluence macro to do this.

Has anyone got this to work?

Any suggestions appreciated!

Hello Svante, if you are looking for commenting, page and blog creation activity, you can use the Confluence activity stream for that.

In case you are interested in increasing the logging levels for Confluence to have addition information on user activity, you can increase logging levels, nevertheless that may need some custom development to have the information in a page.

Ahh, I think you misunderstood me.

I want to filter the existing Activity Stream macro (as you suggested) with the current logged in user to create a common dashboard that shows only the activities for the person looking at the dashboard. (i.e. it will show different result for all users)

I found a feature request on the topic ( so I guess this is not possible just yet.

Yes, Svante that appears to be the case, you can describe your usage case in the improvement ticket, in order to make it more relevant.

Got it! I have updated the improvement ticket with my use case!

Thnx for your comments!
