How to filter space categories with Metadata Overview Macro?


Hi all,


I have been trying to filter each Space with a specific category/label in the Metadata Overview macro. I need this to be able to filter a specific set of metadata from all spaces within the specific Category/Label. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can do this?


Thanks for the help.


Best regards,

Hi @Sasha Ratner ,

like already mentioned by James, you can feel free to ask such things directly to us, the app vendor. That's even faster.

But for now, I think I'm able to help you:

Within the Metadata Overview Macro you are able to filter for the categories of Spaces. 

If you open the options in the Macro edit dialog, you'll see that you're able to use CQL for filtering: Expert filter criteria (CQL)

And so you're able to search by the space category.

Here some example CQL:

  • space.category = development
  • space.category not in (marketing, operations)

A detailed description of how to use the space category in CQL can be found here:


Best regards


Thank you very much! This helps a lot!

Hi James,


I already read the whole article but I can't find what I need. The label filter in the Metadata Overview Macro is only for pages and not spaces. I need to filter Spaces with a certain categorie. Can I do that with the Metadata Overview Macro?



Hi @Sasha Ratner 

I am not very familiar with Communardo Metadata, I'm from a different Atlassian Marketplace Partner. I suggest you contact their support team.

all the best
