Installing confluence after service desk, how do I configure PostgreSQL?

I've installed Service Desk/Core and used the default names used in the instructions (jiradb and jiradbuser) 

The instructions give the same database name and database user for Confluence. Yet, I've read that the databases must be separate. What about users? 

Is it ok to install both applications on the same server? 

I'm not very familiar with SQL databases. Thank you.

It's fine to install Confluence and Jira both on the same server. I would make a dedicated db user for Confluence and one for Jira. Here are the SQL server setup instructions for Confluence: Database Setup for SQL Server and Jira: Connecting JIRA applications to SQL Server 2012 and Connecting JIRA applications to SQL Server 2014


Do those links translate for using PostgreSQL? 

Also, separate DB users but also separate databases? Thanks for your quick reply!

Sorry Matt, I missed the title of your post and thought you were using MS SQL. Please see: Database Setup for PostgreSQL Best of luck, let us know any questions. :) Ann
