"Like" feature in Confluence

Hi All,

some of our project leads met us and claimed for features regarding the Like feature of Confluence.

1. Is it possible to restrict the Like function? If a group has view only right on a particular page but they don't want to grant them Like function.

2. Is it possible to have a ranking list of pages according to the number of Likes?

3. Can I have a list of pages that I have liked? Similar to the list of pages I follow.

4. Can we erase the likes on a particular page? Cover story: there will be a 3 months long competition period when several developers introduce their codes and ideas. Each developer will have an own page with their content on it. The employees have 3 months to review, read the participants stuff and like. At the end of the competition we count the sum of likes and then erase all the likes from the pages.

Is it possible?

Many thanks in advance!

Hi Rumi,

You might want to break down this question into 4 different questions.

1. No it is not possible and from what I can read in the below link, they don't have any plans of adding any functionality to this feature. You can however, try writing a javascript plugin. Recommend reading the comments at the link below

Hi,

thanks for the reply!

Is there a feature for these requirements I mentioned?

1. Ranking pages according to like

2. erase these ranking at the end of the competition

3. list of pages that I like.

There is the Follow function but I don't want to be notified of these pages..this is the problem with follow.

2. Erase ranking at the end of the competition

You can create your own plugin to do that. The API contains a removeAllLikesOn method that will do it for you

Look for class

com.atlassian.confluence.like.DefaultLikeManager

1. Ranking pages according to like

The is the getLikes method. The count will help you with the ordering

Most of us don’t need much convincing that stakeholder management is important. It just makes sense that keeping everyone in-the-know on projects and assigning clearly defined roles is key to having ...
