Filter I created does not appear for other users viewing the page.

I have created a filter for 3 fileds. But when others open the page they only find one filter option and other fields are not displayed.

Hi @Shyam Ganesh kandasamy ,

Do you use the Table Filter macro provided by the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app to filter your tables?

If that is the case, please make sure that you've successfully saved the changes after the creation of all the filters. When you don't save the changes, the filters are not shown for other users and disappear automatically after the refreshing of the page.

If the issue still remains, please raise a support ticket (attach the screenshots and the Page Storage Format: Upper right corner of the page -> ... -> View Storage Format).

Hi @Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ ,

I am not using any additional addon as it is now allowed in my organisation. I am just using the Table filter macro. So, is there a way to solve this within the given conditions?



But there is no native built-in filtering in Confluence, and your Table Filter macro is not on the standard macro list.

As I've mentioned before, the Table Filter macro is a part of the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app.

Maybe there is any mistake in the macro name? Or maybe you use JQL filters inside your Jira Issues macro or something?

Hi @Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ ,

I am sure that the name of the macro is "Table filter". I am also attaching a screenshot.

And yes, I have used a  JQL query inside the macro.


So you are using the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app - the Table Filter, Pivot Table and Chart from Table are its macros.

I suggest creating a support request so that we can investigate your issue safely and not in public. 

Attach the screenshots and the Page Storage Format to the ticket: Upper right corner of the page -> ... -> View Storage Format.

@Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_  Thanks a lot for your support. :) i have created a support request.

@Shyam Ganesh kandasamy , I've also got an idea that your problem may be in different languages for your users.

Jira Issues macro can translate several columns from English to something else.

The workaround may be to wrap your Jira Issues macro in the Table Transformer macro and use the following custom SQL query for your columns:

SELECT COALESCE(T1.'Key', T1.'Key in another language') AS 'Key',
COALESCE(T1.'Status', T1.'Status in another language') AS 'Status',
COALESCE(T1.'Summary', T1.'Summary in another language') AS 'Summary',
COALESCE(T1.'Another column', T1.'Another column in another language') AS 'Another column' FROM T1

So with the help of the Table Transformer macro your Jira Issues table columns will be always in English and your filters and pivots won't break.

@Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_Thanks. I have tried this macro, but only very few columns get displayed, eventhough they are in the Jira filter macro.



You need to list all the columns you want to display in the SQL query.

You'll need to create the following nesting: Jira Issues macro (here you choose what columns you want to show) <- Table Transformer macro (here you list all the columns from the Jira Issues macro and translate them into English with the help of the custom SQL query) <- Table Filter macro (here you set user-friendly filters for the columns that will be only in English language).

And I've also checked with the support team - it seems that they didn't receive your issue yet.

I just reset the browser language to German and then set the filters again. And it is working now. 

The problem was because the other users were using German as their browser language and I was using in German. And some how only few column headers are translated and not all.




Yes, it is known behavior of the Jira Issues macro - not every column header is influenced by language settings. The Table Transformer macro is a workaround for companies with multiple languages.

@Shyam Ganesh kandasamy What app are you using to create filters?

Hi @Davin Studer ,

I am using the builtin Table filter macro to create the filter.
