Is there a way to figure out who/how many users are using various plug-ins installed in Jira and Confluence?

I would like to determine who/how many users are using various plug-ins installed in Jira and Confluence instances. Is it possible to find out who is using what plugins?

Unfortunately it is not possible. Way i usually find this out is by disabling the plugin and see who shouts. This way you know how manyusers are actively using the plugins.

With Confluence, you can check for the macro Usage by typing this in the search box macroName: <macroname>* and see the number of pages where those macros have been used. 

However, again simply finding the number of usages of a confluence macro does not indicate whether those pages are used by theusers.

So, again disable them and see.

I get it. Thanks for your help Pilar. Suriya

Different add-ons do different things. The best way long-term is to encourage the add-on vendors to record this information themselves.

Hello Suriya,

In additional to Pilar response, you can also check on the log files (e.g access_log) what each user is accessing and doing.
