VisualScript lets you visualize data inside Confluence. There are a number of built-in reports, but the real power of VisualScript lies in the ability to create custom reporting solutions.
To access a VisualScript report in Confluence first make sure it's been added to your space.
- Open a page
- Add the VisualScript macro
- Select the report you want to see
- Provide any parameters that the script requires. This may be the title of pages, the name of the space, so on.
- Click Run.
Add the VisualScript Macro
You can find the VisualScript Macro by searching for "VisualScript."
Select a Report to Run
By default, you'll see VisualScript open fill page with a list of reports showing in a file-browser style interface.
If you have custom reports for your team, those will show up under "My Reports."
If you haven't created any reports, there are some "Built-In Reports" you can run.
Most reports will require parameters to query data and generate the report.
Enter the relevant parameters and click "Run" to generate the report.
Generate the Report
Once you're happy with how the report looks, click "Close" to add it to the page.
Once you publish the page, anyone viewing the page can see the report and "Export" an image of it.
To change the report, you have to edit the page, click "Edit" on the inserted Macro and click on "Change Report."
Click on "Change Report" to go back to the list of reports available in your space.
