Confluence: Page Properties: Page Properties Report: Editing Report Macro: Filter Not working

I've created a Confluence page and added a Page Properties macro to it.  I'm now creating a Page Properties Report  based on the Page Properties macro.  When I go to edit the Page Properties Report there is a field called 'Including Text' which I can use to filter the data I am looking for.   The filter works for most text, but when I enter the text 'Deployed' it pulls back all data instead of just the data with the word 'Deployed' in it, any ideas?

For context, I've created a field called 'Release Status' which has the values "DRAFT", "PENDING RELEASE", "APPROVED FOR RELEASE", "DEPLOYED", and "ARCHIVED".  It's to track the status of a release.  I tried creating a dropdown list which I couldn't get to work and I tried creating a checkbox list but I couldn't get the filtering to work so I just use text for now.

Hello Kevin,

You can use Table Filter macro to filter Page Properties Report.

Hi Andrey.

Thank you for your reply!  I did try using Table Filter but unfortunately the way I structured my Page Properties the column contained many values for other rows where I wanted to do a filter and selection for values in only one row - if that makes sense.

As an example above, I want to filter on values in column A, row 3.  I was able to filter on column A but it would also bring back values in rows 1, 2, and 4.  So in my Page Properties report I want to be able to say, show me all forms that have Apples in column A, row 3.

Not sure I understood how your PPR macro shows this properties...

Do you have multiple rows in each PP table? And how those 4 rows from PP are displayed in a row in PPR? Are they concatenated like "Blue Toyota Apples Country"?

You can try to use Free text filter type, or set a Cell value delimeter (use \u0020 as a space character) for dropdown filters.


Thank you for your responses!  I think this is a case of I needed a couple days away from it and some help from an expert (you) that I was on the right path.  I was able to get this to work this morning using the table filter.  

I tried the table filter last week and couldn't get it to work but it works great today.

Thanks for your help!

You are welcome, Kevin! Glad you made it to work!

Hi Andrey, Kevin

Not sure if my problem is related. I have a table with 2 columns and 4 rows. Is it even possible to show all all the data from this PP in a PPR macro ?
