The states report is used to display lists of content and associated workflow state information. It's great for keeping track of content workflow states across multiple spaces.

This is one of several reports available from the Workflow Report Macro.


Anyone can see this report.

View-only users will only see results for content that has reached a Published (final=true) state, even if there are subsequent draft-state edits to that content. Content that has not yet been published, or content under a workflow which does not define a published state, will not be shown.

Admins can make all results available to everyone by changing the Workflow Activity and Drafts Visibility setting.

Adding the report

To add the report to a page:

  1. In the editor, choose Insert → Other Macros → Reporting → Workflow Report
