Is there a way to access the history of pages a particular user accessed?

We provide logins to our clients to access our documentation through Confluence, and our Client Management team would like to be able to have insight into which page each client accesses.

Have you checked out the Viewtracker Plugin?

Yeah, but I'd have to add that to every page I wanted to track (I could do it through my ThemeBuilder layouts, but still). Really what we need is the opposite of what this offers: pages viewed by user rather than users who have viewed a page.

Well, I have three other suggestions.

  1. You could create a web service that would log hits to it in a database and then add Javascript code in the cutom html section in confluence admin to make a request to the web service.
  2. You could create your own plugin ... which is no small task.
  3. You could enable the webserver access logs for Confluence and parse those. Here is a guide for enabling server access logging.
