In one month, on May 14, 2020, we will end support for the following Gadgets in Confluence Cloud:
Activity Stream gadget
Confluence Page gadget
Confluence Quick Nav gadget
Any existing instances of these gadgets will still work. However, you won't be able to insert them into the legacy editor or the new editor using the macro browser, slash command, or a shortcut key.
ℹ️End of support means that Atlassian will not longer fix bugs related to these gadgets.
Gadgets were designed to allow you to display information dynamically from sources like iGoogle or Jira, for example, in Confluence. The first gadgets were introduced in the early versions of Confluence Server, and much of the technology they used is now obsolete. Since then we have also implemented a number of better ways to display dynamic information using macros and other integration points.
⚠️ If your Confluence site is integrated with a Jira site, any Jira gadgets installed in Confluence ARE NOT IMPACTED by this change. You can continue to insert Jira gadgets into any Confluence page.
The Activity stream gadget shows a list of recently changed content in your site. We recommend using the Recently Updated macro as an alternative in Confluence.
This gadget displays the contents of a Confluence page. We recommend using the Include Page macro as an alternative in Confluence.
This gadget provides a search field that can be used to search for page titles in Confluence. We recommend using the Livesearch macro as an alternative in Confluence.
This gadget previously displayed blogs and other news from Atlassian.
