I would need the count of users who are accessing our space per day.

Is there a way to get how many Users are accessing a space per day?

So not how many views but how many single users.

Hi Dominik,

There isn't a built-in way to do that, but it appears these add-ons might be able to help you with that:

Let us know if you have any questions about that.

For Confluence Server or Data Center, one can also enable access logging. I prefer to pipe those logs to a log aggregator like the commercial Splunk or free Elastic Stack. However, one can also use command-line tools to count users in logs. If you follow the instructions for logging to a separate file, then you can do the following on Linux:

cat atlassian-confluence-access.* | awk '$7!="-"{print $7}' | uniq | wc -l

The one thing that might throw off the count a little is the first time access logging is enabled, Confluence produces a message to explain the log format. This means the above command will think one of your users is "AccessLogFilter" (because that's the 7th word in the message). So, you might want to check the actual names:

cat atlassian-confluence-access.* | awk '$7!="-"{print $7}' | uniq | sort

Hope that option helps.
