More complex properties report? ie, multiple rows per page?

I have a list of IP and Port information for each of our clients.  I don't want to maintain this data in two places, so I'm using a page properties widget on each client page to track the IP, Port, NAT, etc.  Then I have a page that lists all of this information with a properties report.  The problem is that some clients have multiple interfaces.  This is where the properties break down.  I tried using two properties widgets but it did not show multiple rows in the properties report.  Here is an example of the data:

ClientInternal IPportExternal IP
Client 1192.168.1.18010.0.0.1
Client 2192.168.1.244310.0.0.2
Client 3192.168.1.42510.0.0.4

Is there any way to set up properties on each client page so that I could get a properties report to look like the table above?  Other ideas?

Ended up modifying Davin's answer and using Horizontal Lines instead of tables.  It looks great!


Yup, that works too.


this is exactly I'd like to do, but I didn't succeed yet.

I have multiple projects to manage (one page per project) with multiple status lines to follow in each project.

I've set a multi-lines page properties table in each project page, and a report page with a properties report page to agregate each project properties table.

It works but the report only displays each first line of each properties table.

Is there a way to agregate all the lines of each table ? either by the properties report, or another way ?

I've tried an alternative way by using extracts, but it's less ergonomic, and less automatic than the properties reports.

Thank you for your help !

Hi @Arnaud de Loitière , you may try the Table Filter and Charts for Confluence app.

Its Table Excerpt/Table Excerpt Include macros collect multiple-row tables from a current page, specific page, page and childpages, page and all descendants, pages with specific labels.

Here is our recent blog post related to your case (with screenshots, of course), please, take a look and feel free to ask further questions.

Thanks @Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ for your answer, it seems to be exactly what I need.

I am consulting in a big IT dpt, so... a bit disappointed they had'nt choosen this macro, until I learnt last week they are going to add it in Confluence very soon.

I will give you a feedback, but I am really waiting for this.

I have found a(n ugly) way to solve my problem right now, by integrating a table into a 1-lined table of properties : it does the job, but the formats of the agregated tables in the properties are obviously really various !

Thanks for your help, which allowed me to confirm my needs.

Nice to hear that our app matches your case. 

If you are going to start a trial period for the app, I can suggest booking a live demo. There you may ask to learn about your exact issue from our team-consultant.

It seems the nested tables are not working in current version:

 Confluence Cloud

Confluence 1000.0.0-a8d8b137191

Can anyone confirm or disprove that?

Thank You

yes, looks like the nested tables are not supported in page prop

What if you do something like this ...

Not ideal, but it's better than nothing.  Thanks!

Really, you don't even have to put in nested tables. You could put in multiple lines and that should work as well.
