We develop several products and use Confluence to provide documentation to the public with each product occupying a Space.
However, we don't want the docs (and updates for new versions) to be publicly visible while we work on them.
Does anyone use Confluence with the notion of a Staging area? Are there any patterns in common use?
Hallo The Diamond Z
This page in the Confluence docs describes how to manage the life cycle of technical documentation, using core Confluence functionality:
There are some plugins that provide extended workflow in Confluence:
I hope these are useful!
Some places I've worked hide the entire space until it's basically ready, others use space restrictions. A couple use closed spaces with limited acces, and then move the pages when they're ready - often their own personal spaces. Depends on if you need a monolithic, mostly static space to go out, or you can drip-feed the pages out as you work through them.
But, the most common emergent pattern is to do the initial work in a personal space, get a colleague to have a quick read, then publish it and work in public. Most documenters are keen to get something out for the users, even if it's a little rough.
