Jira Confluence and Document Retention Systems

Hi Jira Community,

  • Is Jira Confluence the best product for document management?
  • How exactly does archiving work, is there a limit to space?
  • Are other biotech companies using this system, or other systems, and how is it working for you?

Thanks!

Lindsey,

You are mixing up things. JIRA and Confluence are two separate products!

  1. JIRA is an issue tracker, not really fitting a "document management" purpose.
  2. Confluence helps teams to collaborate on rich content and can be used to manage documentation. 

If you look for retention and archiving, there is an add-on dedicated to that: Archiving Plugin. See the add-on documentation or the YouTube quick intro video to learn more.

I'm not sure, if Confluence should be seen as a document archiving / management system. If you understand documents as files (Word, Excel, PDF,...) one can store these files as attachments in a Confluence page. There will be versioning but eg. searching for a content in a specific version (non recent version) of an attached file is difficult, if not impossible without an addon.
