How to make common glossary for all spaces?

My company have a lot of division and each of them have a personal glossary in Confluence. But, almost all of terms are similar. At the moment we use plug-in Glossary (by Spectrum Groupe) that not allow to create common glossary for more that one space or I just didn't realize how to do that.

What is the most cheapest and easiest way to create useful glossary, with highlighting terms in all pages and single storage?


Best regards, Ilya

I'm having trouble understanding part of your question. "Highlighting terms in all pages?"

Setting that aside, to me the most obvious solution here is this: Create a new workspace that is all about one thing: a company-wide glossary.

You could bring in the definitions from the existing department-specific glossaries, blend and delete redundant text. You would also be able to control who can and cannot read, and edit, pages in that space.


Good luck,

Thank you for your answer! I started to make a new workspace as you said.

By "Highlighting terms in all pages" I mean : if you push button "Find term in all glossaries" on the top, Confluence will highlight all defined terms. But, if term defined in other space, Confluence will not show the definition of term. And I don't know how to solve this problem.
