How to use Google Analytics with Confluence Cloud?

Hi there

To use GA with the Confluence cloud service, I read Tracking Atlassian Confluence usage with Google Analytics only to find that there is no custom HTML field in the cloud. In addition to it I've also found that the existing header and footer fields don't accept <script> tag.

So could somebody please help setting GA in the cloud?

Hi Seongwoo,

We've created an add-on that provides some great usage statistics in Confluence Cloud. It includes an overview of activity but also the details like who has viewed a particular page.

You can find more information here: Analytics for Confluence Cloud

Hope it helps!

Hello there,

It's unfortunately not possible, as it would require a custom HTML, what is not allowed on Confluence Cloud.

As you can see on this page, custom HTML is not configurable on Confluence Cloud. The only workaround for this would be migrating to Confluence Server, where you would be able to add the Custom HTML required in order to have the Google Analytics working on the application, or you could use the Google Analytics plugin as well.



Pretty old thread - I've written a on Demand plugin (free) to do exactly that. I am considering to publish it on the marketplace. Let me know if you would be interested to be a beta tester.


Hi Christian,

Did you end up releasing this plugin? I am interested in testing it...
