Traffic stats for Confluence

I was hoping to find a way to track page traffic in Confluence (without installing macros on eahc page). The installation is behind a firewell, so we can't use Goggle Analytics.

I found a link to a plugin called Traffic Stats Plugin, but the page is missing:

https://developer.atlassian.com/display/DEVNET/Traffic+Stats+Plugin

Any idea what happened to the plugin? Is there another way to track traffic?

Ah - thank you. From the initial blurb, I thought this required a macro to be installed on each page I wanted to track. I see now that I was mistaken, and this does what I need.

Hi Bob,

Just because you're behind a firewall, it doesn't necessarily mean you can't use Google Analytics. Do your client browsers have access to the internet? if so, you can still track usage with Google Analytics.

If you want to embed Google Analytics reports into Confluence with Google Analytics for Confluence plugin, then you'd have to open up the firewall for your Confluence server (only) to communicate with www.google-analytics.com

You haven't gone into details about what you'd use this information for.

  1. If it is for full-blown analytics, then besides Kay's answer, you should also check out the Viewtracker Plugin.
  2. If it is primarily to find the "abandoned" pages that no-one views anymore, then the Archiving Plugin, particularly its page view tracking feature is your friend.
