Confluence


You can use the Confluence connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Confluence and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Add the Confluence Connector

To enable Sync to use data from Confluence, you first must add the connector, as follows:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Confluence row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row to open the New Connection page. If the Configure Connection icon is not available, click the Download Connector icon to install the Confluence connector. For more information about installing new connectors, see Connections.

Authenticate to Confluence

After you add the connector, you need to set the required properties.

  • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

  • URL - Enter the URL for your Confluence instance (for example, https://YourSiteName.atlassian.net).

CData Sync supports authenticating to Confluence in several ways. Select your authentication method below to proceed to the relevant section that contains the authentication details.
