We are currently in the process of sorting and marking all the cookies needed by our website (and therefore the "embedded" Confluence behind it) to be GDPR compliant.
We discovered lots of cookies and assigned them accordingly to "needed" and "analysis", but we also found a couple of cookies we can't explain. As far as we found out they are all provided by Confluence - do you know what these cookies are for?
Thank you very much in advance!

I'm so sorry about that. I found specifics about one of those cookies, but not all of them yet:
atlassian-analytics.confluence - Used for statistics only, in order to store statistics about Confluence usage (for the Analytics feature). I believe the .lock file is probably a version of that cookie.
The others aren't listed anywhere yet, but I've been trying to chase down the information for you still. I will follow-up with the teams again today to see if I can find anymore information.
Unfortunately quite old - 6.9.0
We're unable to update due to a custom plugin - at the moment at least, we are working on it.
Could we just put them all in the analysis category? Our guess would be that they are not necessary for Confluence to function properly.
Thank you again!
Hello @Felix Vogler,
Thank you so much for your patience while I tracked this information down.
I hope that helps, but do let me know if you have any further questions.
Hello @Shannon ,
Thanks for this information, but I am not allowed to access to the (bitbucket) browser-metrics frontend library.
Is this cookie native to Confluence, or is it related to a 3rd party plugin? What do you mean by: "so it may be a leftover from an older version"?
We are running Confluence 6.15.4 and this cookie is present. How should we consider it?
