Alert/Report on Key Word Usage

I would like to create a report that alerts on the use of keywords on new/edited confluence pages. Is this possible?

Hi @Christy Draicchio 

This is not possible out of the box.

The only thing I could possibly imagine is an app called ScriptRunner for Confluence.

With this you probably could create a new EventListener on "PageSave" and search for some keywords and if result = true, then send an email.

For this, you need programming skills and again, I'm not 100% sure, whether this works on cloud or not :)

Hi Dominic,

is there a way to define keywords to be informed about new posts in this community board?

This would be useful for the company I am working for. So we will be informed if a user asks a question about one of our Atlassian addons and can provide an answer as soon as possible.

Hi @Titus 

Go to your profile settings --> Notifications --> Search alerts and create the keywords.

Hi Dominic,

thank you! This is exactly I was looking for.




Can this work in atlassian cloud confluence workspaces, or only on the atlassian community?
