    Interface to CQL

    CQL Search Macro also included

    Show only the information you need

    You can use CQL to find stuff using advanced search. Want to find all the pages you've contributed to? No problem, just search for "type=page AND contributor=currentUser()"

    You can also embed the search in a page using the CQL Search macro so that you can use the same search over and over again or make the search results public for other users.

    Choose how many results and which columns you want to display. Only show the necessary details and skip the rest.

    More details

    Do you find that the basic Confluence search is limiting? Or do you just want to try using a more advanced search? Do you think JQL in Jira is really cool and wish you could try something similar for Confluence? Well, now you can!

    Atlassian has been developing CQL for the past year and made it available to developers (as a REST API), but now you can access it yourself using this add-on. For more information about CQL syntax, see this page: https://developer.atlassian.com/confdev/confluence-rest-api/advanced-searching-using-cql

    This add-on exposes an interface to CQL that is executed by your browser, not an external server, so you don't have to worry about your data being transferred externally.

    This add-on includes a search interface (similar to the normal search page) and a macro that allows you to embed the results in a page (similar to the Search Results macro).

    Really helpful add-on. The combination of a hand-crafted query and the macro let me expose data that Confluence's out-of-the-box macros couldn't support. Thanks!
