Last week I released Analytics Plugin for Confluence 1.2 on the Atlassian Plugin Exchange.
It's been 6 months since the initial release which was only tested on Confluence 3.0. This time I've added a new dashboard section, full support for Confluence 3.1 & 3.2 and a pile of macro parameters as requested by Guy Fraser. The release notes are here. Confluence 3.3 is just around the corner, so I'll add an update for that when it comes out.
The Confluence community has shown a great deal of support and encouragement since the plugin was originally released. For example, Atlassian blogged about it before I got a chance to. So thanks to all for your support.
The plugin was name checked by Sherif Mansour - Atlassian's Product Manager for Confluence in the Confluence State of the Union presentation at Atlassian Summit 2010 at the start of the month. Watch it all, but concentrate especially around 5:10!
This week Google approved the plugin for their Google Analytics Application Gallery — take a look here. The Apps Gallery has only been going for about a month so I'm really excited about being a part of it. The slight name change and new logo were done to fit in with the Application Gallery Policy.
In the future
The next release should support Confluence 3.3 and also complete tracking of all pages in a space — not just those with a URL starting /display/spaceKey/ — based on this hack :
// Add a page-level custom variable to record the space-key
if (typeof jQuery('meta[name=confluence-space-key]').attr("content") == 'string')
1, // This custom var is set to slot #1 of 5
// The name acts as a kind of category for the user activity
// This value of the custom variable
3 // Sets the scope to page-level
— If you want to use this hack now, try out this custom Google Analytics report which will allow you to take advantage of it now.
I'd also like to add full space specific tracking for attachments too.
A quick demo
And finally, this is what the new version looks like:
