As more companies make the move to Atlassian’s Confluence Cloud, they’re able to grow exponentially. Yet as their use of Confluence grows, data can become unmanageable, or as one customer confided, “It exponentially becomes more difficult to use as it scales.” 

That’s why we built Reporting for Confluence Cloud. This new app democratizes Confluence data across your organization, making reporting easier and more accessible for everyone, not just power users. 

With Reporting for Confluence Cloud, we’ve transformed a powerful product into an even more valuable app for the cloud.

Built on the strengths of our popular Reporting for Confluence (Server/Data Center), Reporting for Confluence Cloud provides an intuitive way to surface the right information to the right audience, enabling teams to spot trends, identify actionable insights and quickly make data-driven decisions.

Greater Access to Data

Reporting for Confluence Cloud is especially useful for fast-growing companies that are looking to scale more easily. With a simplified and unified experience, Reporting makes it much easier for all users to create reports to help visualize and understand their Confluence data. 

With this transformative tool, Confluence users can make sense of thousands of pages, spaces, and interactions and create sophisticated live reports and dashboards.

A Truly Transformative App

“This app provides a holistic way to access metadata across your Confluence instance and structure customizable reports,” says Aidin Mahmoodi, Product Manager, ServiceRocket. Despite its ease of use, notes Aidin, the app was extremely challenging to build. “The underlying technology that we rely on for the Confluence server is completely different from that same layer in the cloud.” 

Meeting that challenge head on, our developers created an app that delivers amazing results, without compromise. 

Reporting for Confluence Cloud features a completely new, intuitive user interface that enables faster outcomes for non-technical users. Everyone, across the organization, can create reports that help them visualize and understand their Confluence data. That’s democracy in action!

A new experience! Explore, build, fine-tune and publish your reports all in one place, one macro.

With the Atlassian announcement of the sunsetting of server apps, now is the time to take a close look at Reporting for Confluence Cloud.

Here’s How It Works

Reporting for Confluence Cloud allows you to build sophisticated live reports and dashboards based on your existing Confluence data and metadata. These live reports always show the latest information so, you can have peace of mind that the content of these reports and dashboards is always up-to-date.

Capture Confluence Metadata

Your Confluence is full of valuable information. Reporting for Confluence Cloud uses Confluence Query Language (CQL) to fetch the right data across all of your existing data and metadata. Similar to JQL (Jira Query Language), CQL allows you to use structured queries to search for content in Confluence. Your search results will take the same form as the Content model returned by the Content REST API.

Create sophisticated reports using powerful Confluence Query Language (CQL).

Reporting for Confluence Cloud’s Explore View allows you to deep dive into your Confluence’s data structure and find the right data point.

Explore View allows you to interactively drill down through Expansions and fine-tune your CQL query to find and locate the right metadata.

Report Blocks Transform Your Data

Reporting for Confluence Cloud’s unique, customizable reporting structure provides flexibility to meet the needs of your teams. Construct your report or dashboard with precision and flexibility using our intuitive Report Builder experience and array of Report Blocks.
