Task report from space tools is empty, even though there are tasks in space

In every space there is no tasks showing up when selecting "Task Report" from Space tools. When creating a task report using the macro and setting it to the space, it shows all reports. Is this a known bug? (Confluence Server 6.6.4)

Hi Jan,

Can you clarify exactly how you're inserting the Task Report via Space Tools? Since it's a Macro it's not a menu item in Space Tools but I think you might be adding it in the sidebar, for example.

Could you show me exactly how you're attempting to add it so I can see what might be wrong?



Hi Shannon, we do have a menu item "Tasks" in page tools. When clicking this, we get a view similar to the task report macro, but without content.

The url for this menu item is /spaces/tasksreport.action?key=CMP

I have attached both screenshots (Space tools menu) and task report "page": 


Hi Jan,

Your Space Tools menu does appear to be customized, and I believe you might be using the Comala add-on for this. 

I'm going to tag this question so that the company representative of the add-on will be able to assist in this manner, since you confirmed the regular Confluence task report macro does work properly.


Thanks for looping us in @Shannon Spaniol.

Hi @Jan, is your team using Confluence tasks, or Comala Workflows tasks? Workflows tasks won't appear in the Confluence tasks report, which could explain the issue you're having; you need to use the Workflows reporting macro for that. Let me know and hopefully I can help further. 

Hi Mike, thanks for your reply. We are using both tasks and Comala Workflows but I did not mix this up. The task report I am referring to is the one in my screenshots and looks like the task report macro - report. But it is empty even if there are tasks in that space (not workflow tasks). It is nopt such a big deal, I was just wondering what this is and qhy :) 

Hi @Jan, sorry for the confusion, hopefully it gets sorted out.
