Exporting list of pages to Excel/CSV format

Exporting a list of pages with their last updated, last viewed data to Excel.

Use case:

End-users will still want a way to download the list of expired pages so that they can track delegation of responsibility and user activity for specific pages and otherwise manage the process of getting content updated.

    This is a wanted feature, spaceadmins with responsibility for thousands of pages need a way to sort expired pages per user, either creator or editor.

    Would be nice if this is sorted in webpage but an export is also great.

    UPDATE: We have released the Better Content Archiving app's cloud version just a few weeks ago. It addresses many points criticized in the Data Center version, including also this one.

    (Our plan is that, if there is interest, we will back-port the most valuable changes from the Cloud version to the Data Center one.)

    In the cloud version we implemented several app features using CQL, the query language of Confluence, because structured query languages allow powerful filtering and searching.

    We also make several content properties available as CQL fields. These include page status, last update and last view information, as requested here.

    For example, you can write a simple query like this to get the expired pages in those two spaces:

    space in (FOO,BAR) and type=page and arch.status="Expired"

    You can run it with the CQL Search app, choose your columns, then just copy-paste the search results to an Excel spreadsheet. (From Excel, you can save it to CSV if you want to import to another tool.) It is super-easy:

    Note that there are dedicated export feature ideas in our product roadmap, but the approach described above can already be used right now!

    🔥 Try this in action now!
