Atlassian Community RSS feed tips and tricks

Screen Shot 2017-08-03 at 10.52.20 AM.png

RSS feeds are a great way to watch the content that is important to you. Here are some ways to fine-tune your Atlassian Community RSS feeds to focus the content you want, and leave out the stuff you don't.

Collection feeds

On collection pages like this one for Bitbucket, we have RSS feeds available in the Watch menu.

Those feeds look like this:

This feed is scoped to the Bitbucket collection and specifically the content type of Questions.

The interaction styles  in the feeds correspond as follows:

  • Questions = qanda
  • Discussions = forum
  • Articles = blog

An alternative way to write the feed above would be this:

This feed is scoped to Bitbucket Questions. Both of these feeds will output the same content, they are just structured a bit differently.

Modifying the default feeds

We try to provide the most useful feed in the Watch menu. But, if you put the URL for the Bitbucket collection into a RSS reader you will see a bunch of different feeds:

That's a lot of feeds! Most of them are not applicable to our Collections, but a few of them might be useful to you. However, instead of scraping those pages for feeds, you can use some of these parameters to make your own feeds.

Include comments in feeds


Can I get more 20 posts per feed?

Great question.. You definitely can!

The default count to display is 20 and the maximum count to display is 100.

Let's increase that number a bit.


Is 100 not enough? If you'd like to see the maximum count increased on the Community, please leave a comment below.

RSS feeds based on search terms

We can create feeds that are made from any search term. On the Search page, you can enter a search term and then select the feed from the sidebar.

Protip: Make sure you are logged into the Community to get the most accurate feed from the sidebar.

Certain filters applied to your search will also apply to the RSS feed.

Sort by date


Include only topic messages (e.g. only questions)


Include only topics without replies


RSS for tags!

Yes we can..


If a tag has spaces, wrap it in parentheses

Can we help?

These are some of the more useful parameters you can use to hone those RSS feeds. What else would make your feeds better? Let us know in the comments!


Could you please let us know how to get the particular community question using RSS feeds?


This is not working could you please help me to get particular question in rss feeds?

Right-click the page and select "View page source" (on Chrome). Then Command+F to search for "/rss/".

For example, here is the RSS link for this post:

Seems to no longer work? doesn't work in the Inoreader RSS reader

I also tried appending this


 but no joy
