This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Page Properties Report Macro

HI,

I created a page properties report, and it is great. It displays the million pages i have with the relevant metadata ( properties). Now i want to be able to filter this table based on the properties in the table. However i only have the option to sort, not filter. Please assist!

And also, how do I add automatecly add predefined selection option and turn them into labels, like you do here on this question form,
When i open a new question, i need to select between the different parameters:

My questions is about JIRA/COnfluence?Hip CHat

Deployment: Server/cloud
Audience.... etc.
based on what i select, the labels change. 
How do I do it?

Thanks,

Hi Maria,

You can use the table filter macro to filter the page properties report.

  • Insert a table filter macro on your page.
  • Drag and drop your page properties report report inside the table filter macro
  • Edit table filter macro, use filter tab to add column filter
  • Go to filteration tab and use "set filters' defeult value" to assign per populated values to your filters

Hope you find this useful.

Hi Amit, I was looking to add the table filter macro, but I couldn't find it. Can you give me more details on how to add it?

Hi John,

You can find Table Filter macro at Atlassian Marketplace.

Hi Maria,

To filter in the Page Properties Report you have to use the filter options in the macro.  There are no filter options in the table itself.

Thank you, But the filter options within  the macro are very limited. For example, I can't use " include text" twice. Making it impossible to combine filter parameters. Are there any workarounds to it? Are there any Add-Ons to it? 

Thanks,

Hi Maria,

Unfortunately there aren't any workarounds or specific page properties add-ons (that I'm aware of).  There are quite a few table add-ons that allow you to add filter rows, etc - perhaps one of those would work?

Is there a way to suggest that this be added? It seems like filtering to only see properties one wants would be incredibly useful in cases with many pages, like Maria's and mine.
