Since we are using the free version of Slack, \there is a limit of how many messages will be saved in Slack.
We were wondering if there was a way to automatically save our Slack conversation/messages into Confluence so we can n Confluence later on and search on all the history of messages
We use Confluence server (NOT cloud).
We are not interested in having Confluence updates to show in Slack, we are mainly interested to go from SLACK to Confluence.
@Michel_Levy, I'm not aware of anything automatic. Most of the apps I have seen do thing like notify your Slack Channel when changes are made or comments are added.
I do know that depending on what plan you are on in Slack, you have a variety of options to export Channels. If I remember right you can do HTML or JSON. You could then work our a way to import / display the exports in confluence. There are a number of Apps in the marketplace that allow you to view JSON formatted documents.
Slack Export Document:
It's not automatic but maybe it can get you heading in the right direction.
@Michel_Levy Agreed, its not a nice easy solution. I thought your question was a pretty interesting one and was hoping to find something cool out there. If you find something that works please post back here. I'd be really interested in the solution. -pjd
I'm number 75 in line for Marketplace approval, so either some days or a few weeks. The Arqivist will only target cloud for now though, but it does exactly what you want: you press a button in Slack and get back the link to a page with the while thread saved, each message with an individual heading you can link directly to in eg Jira tickets or other pages.
Hey @Neil Brennan thanks for trying it out! That is definitely not what is supposed to happen. I see your post has been some time ago, so I understand if you moved on. If you are still interested in the arqivist, please drop me an email at email@example.com and I'll help you debug the issue. Cheers!
Thanks @Joao Santiago as you say, we have indeed moved on now. We eventually created a Discord server and ingested our old Slack messages to it. Probably not an optimal solution as a lot of formatting and unfurling was lost, but better than losing all our old refs.
Hello @Rachid Gharib thanks for your interest, I really appreciate it!
I'm working on a complete rewrite of the app at the moment. The project is now open-source https://github.com/jcpsantiago/thearqivist, which I think makes sense for an app that handles private data. You can follow the repository for the latest changes and roadmap. This open-sourced code is not yet complete though.
Once this new version goes online in the marketplace, we'll go through all the privacy assessments from Atlassian. In any case, The Arqivist never stores any sensitive data beyond the API keys needed for it to work: we don't store slack messages, names, emails, etc. All that information is stored in your own Confluence instance.
I hope that helps, and apologies for any inconvenience.
