SubSpace and Metadata Integration

SubSpace Navigation for Confluence is integrated with Metadata for Confluence. Therefore you can use the following functionality when both add-ons are installed on your Confluence.

When you add a CQL navigation element to the SubSpace Navigation, you can use Metadata sets and fields in your query (see section "Using Confluence Query Language (CQL) Syntax in Macros (Expert Filter Criteria)" of page Searching with Metadata in the Metadata for Confluence user guide).


1) Show all pages where the "location" (a space Metadata field in space with key "EXAMPLE") is either "Stuttgart" or "Dresden":

EXAMPLE.metadatafield.location = "Stuttgart" OR EXAMPLE.metadatafield.location = "Dresden"

2) Show all pages where the "contact person" (a global Metadata field) is Katherine Smith and the location (the same space Metadata field as in the previous example) is "Dresden". The login name of Katherine is ksmith:

global.metadatafield.contactperson = "ksmith" AND EXAMPLE.metadatafield.location = "Dresden"

3) Show all pages of space "Development" (with space key "DEV") which have the metadata set "projects" assigned:

metadataset = "metadataset.projects" AND space = "DEV"

4) Show all pages of space "Development" (with space key "DEV") which have the space metadata set "projects" or “products” assigned:

(metadataset = "metadataset.projects" OR metadataset = "metadataset.products") AND space = "DEV"
