include children in Insight for Confluence


I've created a structure of object types in insight 5.2.6 and we're using insight for confluence 1.3.6.

The structure has the "Let the attribute be inherited by the subclasses" set so that the parent object types will show the children objects aswell..

now, I want a confluence-page to show this parent object type with its objects and its children objects.. I'm using the IQL: "objecttype="<parent objecttype>" but it just says that there is no objects..

is there another IQL I should use or does the "Insight for confluence" not support children objects.

Hi Frode,

That is because you set it to only include object from the parent, and if the parent has no objects, no objects are returned, Could that be the case? 

What you should use instead is

objectType in objectTypeAndChildren("<parent objecttype>")

Best Regards
