Total number of pages in a space - how?


I want to find out how many pages are in a space. More than that I want to know if it's possible to see how many sub-pages there are under a given head page.

I can't see anything about there here or in the Admin's user guide.

You can do this with a macro, like this:

## Macro title: Count Children
## Macro has a body: N
## Body processing: n/a
## Output: HTML

#set ($pageListArray = [])
#set ($spaceHome = $space.getHomePage())

#macro ( process $rp )
  #set ($pagelist = $rp.getSortedChildren() )  ## returns List<Page>
  #foreach( $child in $pagelist )
    #set($p = $pageListArray.add( $child ) )
    #if( $child.hasChildren() )
      #process ( $child )
#process ( $spaceHome )

<table class="confluenceTable">
  <th class="confluenceTh">Title</th>
  <th class="confluenceTh">Num Children</th>

 #foreach( $child in $pageListArray)   ## child is of type Page
     <td class="confluenceTd">$child.getTitle()</td>
     <td class="confluenceTd">$child.getChildren().size()</td>

Total pages: $pageListArray.size()


Thanks for doing all that.

I've just tried adding this into the HTML view and saving the page. Whilst the table rendered, nothing else did. I also tried it in the HTML macro but that also failed.

Please forgive my ignorance, but how do you actually use this?


Oh, this is a "user macro". You need to create a new macro and then add it to a page. Here's info on creating macros:

Most of the info on that page you can skip, except: navigate to the user macro creation page, give the macro a name, and paste the body into the body field. Then go to a page in your space, open in edit mode, and add the macro by selecting Insert > Other Macros.




thanks, I appreciate your time and effort on this. I'll have a look and give it a go asap. :) Cheers.

Great, just tried it and I don't have the correct level of permission to do this! :) I've sent it to our big admins to see if they can. Cheers.

For automation you can use getPageList from Confluence Command Line Interface with the appropriate parameters:

--action getPageList --space xxx --file /dev/null
36 pages in list written to file: /dev/null

--action getPageList --space xxx --title home --file /dev/null --descendents
22 pages in list written to file: /dev/null
