How do I determine (using Reporting suppliers) whether a Confluence inline comment is resolved or still open

We are currently setting up a Confluence site to maintain the user documentation. With each release, the adapted user documentation is reviewed for Quality assurance.

We intend to use the Confluence Reporting Add-on in order to Support all users in Controlling and steering the Review process.

One important Report is the overview of all inline comments which are not yet resolved.

I do not find or see any mean to determine by a Reporting supplier whether a given comment is resolved or not.

Any ideas or hints?

Hello Robert,

For your information, currently Reporting plugin does not have supplier for inline comments as this is a new feature in Confluence which introduced in ver5.7. However, we may consider to add a feature request for this.

Thanks&Regards,

Hello Zana,


now I'm irritated: I'm working with on a test instance unsing Reporting 5.8.0. I just (last Friday) wrote my first report an succeeded in creating a table with all inline comments. The only - or at least most important - thing that I did not figure out was how to filter out all already resolved (inline) comments.

Hence: I think the feature is already supported (willingly or fortunately) through content reporter with type = comment. Using the content supplier i have access to all information / parts of the comment. I would only expect to have an attribute like "status" or a boolean "resolved".

If necessary, I would like to place such a feature request, at least to make the features I want to use "offically supported". Since this will take a while I would nevertheless proceed with reports based on the behaviour I observed so far.

Do you know any (even tricky) way to derive the fact, that a comment is not yet resolved?

Thanks and Regards

Robert

Hello Robert,

Sorry that I overlooked on {content-reporter} macro, I was testing solely on Comment Supplier on a single page. This macro is able to pull inline comments, however Comment Supplier currently doesn't have "resolved" or "status" key. I will add an improvement request for this.


Thanks&Regards,
