SQL needed for space access by user

I need to produce a report, for some arbitrary period of time and every space, who has accessed the space and how many times during the time period. Does anyone have any idea how I might do this? I'm relatively inexperienced with SQL and even less so with the Confluence schema.


We're running Confluence version 5.7.1 and MySQL 5.1.73.

Confluence doesn't natively track "access" to spaces, so there's nothing stored you could even begin to query.

You'll need to look at one of the tracker add-ons you can get.

Instead of user access to a space, would it be possible to get the number of page views per user for a space via a SQL query?

Confluence doesn't write records to the database to track users accessing pages. There are user access logs you can turn on, but they won't look like a report.

Nic's suggestion of trying a tracking add-on is a good idea.

There are other ideas on this page:

Please, re-read the first sentence of my answer.

Sorry, when you wrote spaces, I didn't understand that to mean pages as well. Thanks for the assistance.

Thanks, Ann. I'll take a look at the page.
