adding a filter to the Page Properties Report Macro


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


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?

I realise this is an old post, but it seems you can now use a logical operator (AND/OR) with the "including text" filter - such as "|Status|Open| AND |Project|Stuff|" - which seems to meet your needs Rob Woodgate.

Hi Cam,

Do you mean you can use AND and OR within the text of the filter?

(And what are the pipes for?)

This works if you're searching for a specific text. Any idea how to do this if you're looking for a field that hasn't been populated, the field is empty?

@Rob Woodgate The pipes are the column and the text you're looking for.

EX. |Column Name|TEXT|

@Cam Mckerral - I am trying to do this with our version of Confluence where I want to filter the page properties report content based on the value of a field, but I cannot seem to get it to work. I have populated the "including text" filter with |Status|Review| - but it does not seem to apply the filter. Any idea if this capability exists?

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.

Note Confluence will still first retrieve all records. On the page Table Filter will hide those not matching. Use sparingly - doesn't scale well with and imposes a load.

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? 


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.

It's been several years and this feature is still lacking. Is there any improvement plans or is this just a stale macro ?
