How to build company glossary with Confluence Cloud


I have found some tutorials for building company glossary with Confluence, but only server add on. I cannot find any add ons / tutorials for building it on a cloud version of Confluence, so my question is, is it possible to build company glossary on the Cloud instance of Confluence? If yes, can I please get some directions?

Hi Ivica,

For now, there's a feature request in order to make Glossary add-on available for Cloud, as you can see here:

The only option, for now, is to vote and comment on this request in order to increase its visibility, since unfortunately, there's no alternative for this add-on in Cloud version.


Hi Ivica,

There is a new glossary add-on for the cloud version of Confluence

You can easily manage technical terms in an interactive glossary. While reading a page those terms can automatically be looked up and will be displayed together with their definitions.

this plugin doesnt work

Hi Stefan,

I am sorry that you experienced issues with the add-on.

I would be happy to help you sort those things out. So maybe you could elaborate on what exactly is not working.

Note that there is a user guide which covers how the add-on works basically. If your specific issue is not addressed there please contact our support,

Hi Ivica

I have detailed how I maintain my glossary in another answer -

It uses Excel formulae to build the expandable entrees and answers.

Hope this help.

Thanks, Sandy
