Can you add plugins to hosted Confluence?

I've read the question about Jira Studio being installed with pre-bundled plugins available for use and that you cannot add additional plugins manually.

Is this the same for hosted Confluence or is it more flexible in allowing me to install plugins on my own?

You are correct about JIRA Studio.

Hosted Confluence (completely separate from JIRA Studio) is more flexible, allows for more customization, and allows almost all plugins to be installed (a few exceptions for plugins that depend on other programs).

If you want to confirm that a specific plugin can be installed, please post which one and I can confirm.

Thanks for the quick response.

So that I'm clear, hosted Jira Studio comes with licensing for hosted Confluence, correct? Since Confluence and Jira are separate, the plugin issue only really affects Jira, not Confluence?

Specifically, the plugins I want to install are:

Scroll-wiki exporter (they indicate that they can be installed on a hosted instance)

Multi-excerpt plugin

Code macro plugin

Content Plublishing plugin

Copy Space plugin

Jira Macros plugin


That's all I can think of at this time. Are these able to be installed in a hosted Confluence environment.

A bit of clarification, there are three products we are talking about:

JIRA Studio (which has both JIRA and Confluence included)

Hosted JIRA

Hosted Confluence

While they are all hosted by us, they are all separate products. (The links hopefully clarify the issue, hosted JIRA and Confluence are 90% the same as if you were running them locally, JIRA Studio is a suite of our products). To answer you question directly, JIRA Studio does not come with a license for ‘hosted Confluence’.

Both 'hosted JIRA' and 'hosted Confluence' (a different license for each one) can be customized and have plugins installed.

All the above plugins should work fine with hosted Confluence (presuming compatibility with the plugin versions).

For reference, the plugins that come with JIRA Studio (for both JIRA and Confluence) are at:
