How can I find all Confluence comments?

Is it possible to do this without needing to use SQL etc?

I'd like to be able to run a search that finds all comments so that I can see if any can be dealt with by either answering them, deleting them etc.

Cheers,

You may also want to take a look at the Reporting Plugin. It allows you to create custom reports in Confluence, for example to display the last 10 comments sorted by date (replace "ATall" with "@all"):

{report-table:maxResults=10}
 
{content-reporter:spaces=ATall|type=comment}
  {date-sort:content:modification date|order=descending}
{content-reporter}
 
{report-column:title=Date}{report-info:content:creation date}{report-column}
{report-column:title=User}{report-info:content:creator|link=true}{report-column}
{report-column:title=Page}{report-info:content:page|link=true}{report-column}
{report-column:title=Comment}{report-info:content:body}{report-column}
 
{report-empty}
_No comments found._
{report-empty}
 
{report-table}

Hope this helps

Remo,

Thank you, I am going to investigate the reporting plugin asap (i.e. as soon as I can find the time!) :)

Cheers.

Thanks for the reporting plugin example. Worked great for me.

Hi Mike,

you should be able to find all comments by searching for "type:comment".

This searches for all content of type "comment". For more details see

http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+Search+Syntax

and

Tino, thanks, that worked!

I discovered after some experimentation that you have to enter it into the search field on the right, and then filter by space. If you use it within a space it doesn't work.

Thanks, you've just made my life a lot easier!

Cheers.

I've have the same issue and managed to see the comments but I want filter out the comments that are resolved.

I cannot find which field to use in order to do so.

I've tried state but didn't find the correct value to use it with.

Anyone knows?

Cheers.

I have also a problem with the search for comments: searching for type:comment matches all comments, that is page comments, inline comments, and resolved inline comments.

Inline comments are a great tool for revising. But I would need the possibility to search for unresolved comments only because these are the ones where I have work to do.

Is there any solution to this problem?

Thanks,
Bernd

Another way to view all comments is to use Bob Swift's SQL Plugin and then use a query like this:

{sql:dataSource=SQLDev|output=wiki}
SELECT CONTENTID, CREATOR, CREATIONDATE, LASTMODIFIER, LASTMODDATE, PREVVER, PAGEID, PARENTCOMMENTID FROM CONTENT WHERE CONTENTTYPE='COMMENT';
{sql}

Is there a way to show comments just in a particular page?
