Activate databases?

Filip Callewaert September 8, 2023

Hi @Divya Sriram 

I'm about to start a small project with a client concerning their documentation process in Confluence. They are in Cloud Premium.
Before Databases, the only native way to metadate the documentation pages was through page properties. 

Is there any possibility that Databases alpha gets activated in that client's Confluence, so that I build a pilot use case 'Documentation' with Databases instead, and feedback here about his case?

Hi @Divya Sriram - coming back to this. Is this possible? It would as such be an interesting experiment I can feedback about here too.

Hey @Filip Callewaert  - thanks for your patience. We love hearing that that more teams would find databases valuable. At the moment, we've rolled out Confluence databases to a small group of EAP customers. We hope to have an open Beta where anyone who wants to can have Confluence databases on their instance in calendar year Q1 FY24 when we'd love for this client to check it out!

Ok, @Divya Sriram , I only saw it as an opportunity to learn how databases might replace the use of page properties, in a live case, at scale. This is something I will not set up in a playground - no time for that. For this client, it is about documentation at scale - an important use case for Confluence in general.
I had hoped to share results here to further discuss. 
According to me, presenting databases as alternative to page properties is the most revolutionary use case for Databases.
