Google Analytics in Confluence has the ability to integrate with external tools that are built on top of Confluence. This page discusses some of these tools and how they can be integrated with Google Analytics in Confluence.
Refined for Confluence Cloud
Refined for Confluence Cloud allows you to “build custom themed Confluence intranets, knowledge bases, wikis, documentation sites and more”.
Refined does not build static websites from Confluence content. Instead, it presents Confluence content in a number of ways, including as intranet content for authenticated users.
We feel that this use case is perfect for an integration between Google Analytics in Confluence and Refined for Confluence Cloud.
Scroll Viewport for Confluence
Scroll Viewport for Confluence allows you to “publish your Confluence documentation as a help center: customize the theme & domain, version content & integrate with other tools”.
It builds a performant, static website that is publicly accessible and is really a way to publish a subset of your Confluence content for anyone to view.
We feel that this use case means that any Scroll Viewport site is therefore a separate external entity and as such should use a separate Google Analytics property for tracking who is viewing what and when.
Google Analytics in Confluence currently does not integrate with Scroll Viewport for Confluence, but we are willing to reconsider this if a valid reason for an integration is presented to us.
Products that use the “Confluence Embedded Pages” technology
If a product uses Confluence Embedded Pages, then it already works with Google Analytics in Confluence with no further action required from the Confluence administrator.
Some examples of products that embed Confluence pages:
Refined for Confluence Cloud (when the “Embedded Pages” option is checked)
