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:

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

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

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