It depends on what you mean by "integrate".  It does mean "work with", but that's about it, it's far too vague to tell us what you're looking for.

Could you explain, in terms of what the end user might see in their browser, what you're looking for?

One obvious tip though - most places I know either use Confluence as their whole intranet, or simply include it - with static pages like ourintranet/page1 ourintranet/page2 ourintranet/confluence (which lands you on the dashboard and the whole of confluence lives beneath it)

Hi Nic,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Let me try to explain, within the company there is any existing Intranet platform which is not Confluence.

For our department I would like to make use of Confluence as being a subset of the Intranet and link that someway with the existing Intranet platform of the company. With link I mean, if you access the company Intranet and go to the department website you are redirected to the created confluence page.

Do you have any experience with that?

Please let me know if you need more insights.

Thanks,

I've seen that done quite a lot actually.

I've only got involved when it's been built with an Apache web-server front end, but it seems to work fine and I know you can do it with nginx and lightppd, so I'm 99.9% sure you can use IIS too.

Anyway, you set up Apache to serve up your intranet as normal, but then proxy certain urls within it.  So

/ - default intranet

/site1 - a virtual host that points to some pages

/site2 - a proxypass on to your confluence server

Ok thank you.

Regards,

Paul
