OVERVIEW OF THE FEATURES
Managed Data Fields allow you to define structured data fields globally, instantiate them on Confluence pages with values and evaluate them centrally.
No duplicate work: you don’t have to label pages separately to include them in a field query.
No copying tables: by working with fixed field definitions, you immediately know which fields to fill in.
Field instances carry the data to be analyzed and can be placed on any Confluence page. In doing so, they always correspond to the underlying field definition.
The handling of the Managed Data Fields plugin is intuitive and easy. The user manual offers examples and understandable instructions. And should you have any questions, our excellent support will be happy to help you.
You can already specify in the field definition which data type the property should have. This ensures that all pages with this data field also have comparable properties. We distinguish between the following types of data attributes:
- Text: Free text
- Date: Calendar date
- User: Allows tagging of Confluence users
- Dropdown, radio button: Single selection of a predefined value
- Multiple selection: Checkboxes to select multiple predefined values
- Calculation: even complex calculations are possible
Build your individual field definition from the above data attributes to store all the required information in one data structure.
Field queries allow to search for field instances of a type and bundle the results on a Confluence page of your choice.
- Graphical evaluation: the field query provides results in tabular as well as in graphical form. You can compile your own charts and evaluate different field properties against each other.
- Filter: the field query can output all fields of a definition. You can also use different queries for the same field with different value filters to get an ordered and structured overview.
If required, field definitions can be restricted to selected Confluence areas – this applies to both creation and use as well as queries.
