Get FULL inline comments from confluence API.



I've got a problem when it comes to downloading inline comments. When following the docs:

and doing GET request at:

all of the comments are "croped" -> If comment is longer than ~256 characters, API returns first 252 characters and three dots. So the response looks like:


   extesnions : {
       inlineProperties: {

           originalSelection : "First 252 chars of my comment...",




 How can i modify API request to get full comment?

Hi Dawid,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to have you join us!

There's a feature request below that has some information on how you might be able to obtain inline comments using API:

  • CONFSERVER-43583 Ability to get the status of inline comments through REST API

Look at Hasnae's comment there. If you still have trouble, I recommend trying the Atlassian Developer Community instead.

I hope that helps!

Hi @Dawid Weiss

We can suggest a workaround with the help of the Talk Report feature in our Talk - Advanced Inline Comments for Confluence app.

Talk Report allows overviewing comments made on a specific page and/or space and see in it the following data:

  • Name of a page where an inline comment/suggestion was created
  • Link to an inline comment/suggestion
  • Initial comment/suggestion
  • Priority of an inline comment/suggestion
  • Status (open, resolved, archived)
  • Discussion/suggestion author
  • Users mentioned in a discussion
  • Date when a talk was started
  • Date of talk resolution

A good case is to use this app with the Table Filter and Charts  app. With the combination of these apps, you can filter comments by a certain user, the priority of a comment (low, medium, or high), and its status(open, archived, or resolved). These filters can help you to see which comments may take your immediate reaction.
