Looking to log all access requests in Confluence

Hi,

We want to be able to identify what pages have been accessed and also what attachments have been downloaded from a page.

We have enabled access logging (as specified http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/How+to+audit+Confluence+-+enabling+user+access+logging) but this only logs page requests.

Any suggestions on how we can log attachment downloads also?

Thanks in advance.

(Are you really sure it won't log attachment requests? It's a http request...)

Alternative would be to turn on Tomcat page logging, see my answer here for how:

https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/984/logging-user-s-browser-and-version

Note that Tomcat logging doesn't get the username, only the ip

This is how I manage and use Confluence user access logging data http://www.leonizm.com/parseaccesslogs.html.

 

If you use Apache to proxy the connections, you should see the relevant GETs in the access logs. From there, you can parse deatails and generate counts.

More on proxying here: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Running+Confluence+behind+Apache
