I need to identify which users or more correctly dashboards are using specific gadgets in my jira instance,
These gadgets are coming from an external Jira i have a subscription to, and i want to identify all places such gadgets are being used
here is an example:
Is there a way to achieve this?
On Server/DC you may try checking portalpage and portletconfiguration tables. Look at the gadget_xml value for one of your known dashboard to see how it looks like for a given gadget.
You could run this to see what these tables have to offer:
select * from portalpage pg
join portletconfiguration pc on pg.id=pc.portalpage;
For example, "Custom Content for Jira" plugin will have "customcontent" on it so we could run:
select pg.pagename,pg.username,pg.id,count(*) from portletconfiguration pc
join portalpage pg on pg.id=pc.portalpage
where gadget_xml like ('%customcontent%') group by pg.pagename,pg.username,pg.id;
Which would give you the dashboards using it.
When I saw your question, I wondered this also for our cloud instance. After looking around I could find no way to do this with admin functions, the REST API, or marketplace add-ons. Maybe a vendor will speak up if they have a tool for purchase. Until then...
For your server instance, there might be a database table you can query. You may want to repost this question in the developer community to see if someone can help:
