I'm looking for a way to integrate Confluence with Slack, such that any updates or comments made to pages will appear in a specific Slack channel. What would be the best way to go about accomplishing this?
Hi there, great news!!! We now have a free Confluence Cloud <> Slack integration (built by Atlassian) available for your team to use.
Please visit https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1219518/confluence-cloud-for-slack?hosting=cloud&tab=overview for more details. Looking forward to hearing feedback from you.
@shreshth -- with the new slack app, can I SEARCH confluence? Thats the most requested feature from my team.
E.G. the conversation in slack is:
Q> Where is the information?
A> In Confluence...
...and then the person has to actually navigate to confluence in their browser to search rather than being able to search directly from Slack.
thank you for your answer.
This is a sad piece of news for Server version users who relied on the integrations with Hipchat.
Any plans when this functionalities will be brought back to the Server versions of Jira, Confluence and Bitbucket - in the same/similar way they were present for Hipchat?
As @Nikola Stjeljasaid, HipChat is retiring soon. More effort from Atlassian should be done to replace the integrations from JIRA/Confluence/Bitbucket/etc to Slack ASAP.
Your decision to retire HipChat and force us to Slack should not make us buy third party addons to have the same features as before.
Wish Atlassian would support Confluence server in the same respect. I don't understand why integrations like these are not made to work with both. Doesn't it use the REST api?
Those of us running server due to specific needs (branding, wider range of add-ons, sso that doesn't cost us an arm and a leg,) are 2nd class citizens to Atlassian these days. It's not as if our licensing and ongoing support costs are any less than cloud customers. In fact, we pay more considering we must run our own infrastructure. Very sad.
I wish this support would be extended to Confluence Server. There is a trends towards Atlassian only building integration for the cloud products. Can't the REST api be used in both cases?
Bottom line is that Server customers now feel like 2nd class citizens. It's not as if we pay less for Atlassian products, actually, far more considering we manage our own infrastructure. Either kill the server products altogether or fully support them. Recognize that your customers have specific needs for running server based products, like branding, more flexibility in customization, a richer set of add-ons, etc. and support us comparably.
We built our add-on using Atlassian Connect Framework which, at the moment, supports only Cloud products. Building a Cloud add-on is more like building a web application where we maintain all the backend infrastructure on our own. Server add-ons however are more like desktop application with completely different approach (and technology used). Therefore, there is no easy way to "port" already existing Cloud add-on into Server and that's why we don't have plans of doing so at this point.
We'll let you know if anything change regarding this.
Is there a way to subscribe to a Tag in Confluence? e.g. I want to tag important pages in confluence as "announcements," and have that automatically push into a corresponding slack channel.
I tried creating a "stream" page using a widget, but because the page itself doesn't update (the widget does) no update is pushed to Slack.
We develop a plugin for JIRA Cloud (JIrassimo notifications for JIRA), that does this sort of the integration for JIRA (between JIRA and Slack, among the other channels/messengers)
It has the event you are looking for, so it should be possible to implement it as a plugin
@Łukasz Rżanek1, I think what he's talking about, and what I'm looking for, is link previews, which are extremely common in Slack. Paste any public URL into a slack message and you'll get a rich preview (if enabled)
I'd love to see the page title, first line of content, and number of comments and likes on the page when pasting confluence link.
Atlassian already does it for Jira issues (see https://slack.atlassian.com) - giving me hope they'll do something for Confluence
Nope I want to collaborate on a confluence page via a slack channel. So I link a slack channel to a confluence page and everytime I post a msg on that slack channel it appears either as appended text to the confluence page body or as a comment. It is my choice whether it appears in confluence as a page append or comment.
Please implement this feature next for the confluence slack integration :)
Hey there, folks! For most of us, the past six months- yes, you read that right- have been a journey. More people than ever before have pivoted to working remotely, and navigating being on-scre...
