How to count each status of the status macro


I'm trying to summarize all the of the status information given by the status macro in one graph. To do this I need the total count of each possible status. Is there any way to do this because i didnt find any macro that would be able to this and counting it manually would take too much time in the long run.

Many thanks in advance!

Dou you want to count statuses in a single page? How do you place them (maybe in a table or Page Properties Report macro)?


i want to count the statuses of several pages. On the "main" page above I'm using the Page Properties Report Macro (+ labels) right now but I want to change it to a table, so that i can write the status name in one column and the count into another one.

My goal is to use the chart macro to display the information in a graph.

Then you can use Pivot Table macro to count each status in a table or PPR macro. And you can use Chart from Table macro to visualize it.

Both macro are shipped with Table Filter and Charts add-on.

Here is the video with your case.

It worked. Thanks a lot!

You are welcome!

If you want to simply count all statuses in a single page (no filtering required), then you could simply install this simple user macro that puts a count of all same statuses (i.e. if the text is different, then it counts as unique) on a page in a table:

## @noparams
<tbody id="status-table">
AJS.toInit(function() {
var statusTable = jQuery("#status-table");
var statusMacros = {};
jQuery(".status-macro").each(function() {
if (statusMacros.hasOwnProperty(this.outerHTML)) {
statusMacros[this.outerHTML] += 1;
} else {
statusMacros[this.outerHTML] = 1;
Object.keys(statusMacros).forEach(function(key) {
statusTable.append('<tr><td class="confluenceTd">' + key + '</td><td class="confluenceTd"><p>' + statusMacros[key] + '</p></td></tr>')


Ah, I think this is what you're looking for, but it renders the table on the front-end, so it wouldn't be able to be inserted into the graph macro... let me see if I can figure out how to do it on the back-end.

In case someone wants to try it without installing a plugin, here's a user macro that should work inside the chart macro (but it won't be displayed properly until you save the page):

## @noparams
#set ( $container = {} )
#set( $contentBody = $content.bodyAsString )
#foreach ( $part in $contentBody.split('(?=<ac:structured-macro)|(?<=\/ac:structured-macro>)') )
#if ( $part.contains('ac:name="status"') )
#set ( $status = $part.replaceAll(' ac:macro-id=".{36}"', '') )
#set ( $statusCount = false )
#set ( $statusCount = $container.get($status) )
#if ( $statusCount )
#set ( $statusCount = $statusCount + 1 )
#set ( $void = $container.put($status, $statusCount) )
#set ( $void = $container.put($status, 1) )
#foreach ( $status in $container.keySet() )


that looks great, I'm trying to include this into my page right now.

I'm just a bit lost on where exactly to include the code block?

My diagram area looks somewhat like this (simplified):


Hi AK,

you seem a little bit confused about the effects of the macro. What it does is count the status macros on the entirety of the page, so you shouldn't include the statuses within the diagram macro.

First of all, you will have to include the code in a user macro (give it a name):

Then you have to include the macro with the name that you defined inside of the diagram macro, and this combination will generate a chart with a count of each status macro. Please make sure you use the 2nd one (the one from the reply, not the main answer).

Please note that this only works for Server, as you can't use user macros in Confluence Cloud, but I'm working on building this functionality into a Confluence Cloud app.

Great, thanks for clarifying. I was looking for a way to do it without having to write a macro (it's hard to get that past our administration). Will see

@Stephen Deutsch if you're not a Global Admin and can't develop a User Macro as you've suggested above (and many others have also - including, and the organisation doesn't appear to have added Pivot Macro to our environment - is there any other way to count status modules on a page. I've searched as many blogs and pages to find another way. My administrator here is slammed and won't be able to help me. 

+1 to @Victoria Pooley
This would be a great standard feature to be able to report on this or pivot without additional plugins would be great.

@Stephen Deutsch 

I try to use the status count in a Chart Macro.

The user macro version 1 is working OK.

The backend version is not giving the same results. (your second answer from 20 July)

It is not grouping by status but shows every status with Count 1.

Any suggestions ?


@Stephen Deutsch  - your macro is not grouping, can you check if you have time

Something might have changed in recent versions, I'll check soon and update

@Stephen Deutsch  Did you get a chance to look into it ? 

Sorry it's so late, but I just edited the answer; it's now fixed (there was a space in the wrong place).

@Stephen Deutsch 

Thanks for the fix. It's working OK now.

Little observation, if you enter the status code text it appears always as uppercase, but you can enter it in upper and lowercase. If you mix those the count is not correct and will show a count for the uppercase status and the lowercase one.

How can I should do if I want to count statuses from more page?
