Do I have to subscribe to Confluence if I want a public knowledge base for my Jira Service Desk.

I'm a bit confused regarding what's included with the Jira Service Desk subscription.  Knowledge bases are listed as a feature.  Is it necessary to subscribe to Confluence also to use the knowledge base feature or is limited Confluence functionality included with the base Jira Service Desk subscription

In short, do I need two subscriptions to run a public facing service desk with a linked knowledge base?

 

Thanks

Hi Brian,

Yes it is confusing.  Basically you can link 1 space in your confluence instance for your Service Desk.  However, that only allows the pop-ups within Service Desk to be viewed.  It does not allow access to Confluence itself. 

Hope that helps,

Susan

The only knowledge base functionality is tied to the Confluence tool, so that's correct.
