How to Export Confluence Quick Search Results to Excel?

To remove remnants of a prior corporate owner, I plan to run key-word searches of our Confluence instance (e.g; prior owning company name).  I expect search to return pointers to Spaces, uploaded documents, etc., that contain the name of the prior corporate owner.  I expect the list will have hundreds of hits.  I want to export pointers to all identified items to Excel for review by a panel of people.

You could create a page with the "search results" macro. You would put the search terms i the macro properties. Then you could export that page to PDF or Word. Would that work for you?

Thanks Davin - Worked!

Thanks for the suggestion. Good idea. But the Search Results macro doesn't provide all options, the search itself does. We are using Confluence as a documentation system and one of our Use Cases is to do proofreading (we also use ScrollVersions). So to see what I have to review, I am using a search with a defined:

  • Space
  • Version (using title:v<version>)
  • Page tree (using the ancestor option)
  • Time range of changes

I'd like to export this to Excel to be able to put a check mark on reviewed pages. And no, we don't use workflows because this causes trouble with ScrollVersions.

Is there a way to export such a search result without the macro then?

Thanks & best regards,

Hello, the "search results" macro is not longer supported. How should we do it now?
