Show all comments on Confluence space opening page

How is it possilbe to list all the comments related to a specific Confluence space?

This is a good practice to track all the activites in the space but I'm not able to solve it.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Boj,

Actually there isn't a way to show all the comments by default in a specific Confluence page.
The expand comment feature, is recorded by your browser's cookies. So if in this space you expand the coments to see all of them, next time you go to it, it will show expanded.


I think you can do what you are looking for with SEARCH. Try the search in your space (or maybe some doc somewhere) and you can see by choosing options you get syntax that will look something like this (note type and where is space-key):


You can just make a "see all comments" link in your space with this syntax and Bob's your uncle.

Thanks Stephen! Quite helpful. I would add that the syntax for where should be where=pagekey, where pagekey is the Key value under the Space Operations page for your space. For example, if the Key for your page is AWS, then where=AWS in the URL. The following example illustrates the full URL syntax:



It help me fix an - aparranlty - bug I've detected, where I'm not receiving notifications of comments on pages when I'm watching the whole space. Until I get a response from Atlassian about this issue, I'm gonna use this "search trick" ;)

Tks a lot!

This is a great workaround! Whilst it isn't the ideal solution from Atlassian, it provides us with a list of comments. Unfortunately, any 'out of the box' solution means you need to keep two windows open, one for your comments and one for the page you're editing (and whilst you do that you need to manually find the comment you want to address/resolve).
