How to track search queries in Confluence?


it would be nice to know for what people are searching to arrange the information architecture to their behaviour and to feed the Synonym plugin. Are queries logged somewhere? How do you handle that?

Best regards,

By the way, you can track search keywords in a Confluence site by using Google Analytics.

Matthew, consider me totally new to Google Analytics. Would you know how one can see the search keywords on a Confluence site by using Google Analytics?

Hi Septa,

thanks a lot!

Best regards,


A workaround is to enable logging at DEBUG level for package but beware that search terms are logged after transformation and other sources in the app use the search engine.
