Glossary Configuration

I'm currently using Confluence v6.6.0 with the Basic Glossary addon from Keysight Technologies (add-on key:  com.keysight.glossary). 

  1. I've created 2 spaces:  a glossary space (named glossary) and linked it to my user space (named documents) by setting the space label/category to documentation for both spaces. 
  2. When highlighting a term from a document in my user space, I get the pop-up (as expected) to define the term and I'm sent to the glossary space to add the definition.  I've defined the term and saved the changes.
  3. After selecting the term again (in the same section of my user space or in another location/document in my user space where that term is used) to view the definition, I'm still being prompted to add it to my glossary, even though it's already defined.  

What am I missing?  Is my glossary space not properly connected to my user space?  Is there another component that needs to be defined?  I didn't see any additional requirements listed in the online documentation, but that doesn't mean I didn't miss something. 

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

To define a term, you create a page within the appropriate letter page. To define 'test':

  1. Navigate to your glossary space
  2. Navigate to the 'T' page.
  3. Create a new page
    1. Title: Test
    2. Next lines: "This is a test."
  4. Save (publish) the page.
  5. Navigate to another page including the word 'test'.
  6. Highlight the word (double click). Wait a moment.
  7. Choose "Show Definition."

You should expect to see a pop-up with "Test. This is a test."

Hi Jessie.
I've just had exactly the same experience, and yes I have read that Glossary Wiki article.
If I manage to solve it, I'll report back.
Cheers, Andy

This type of comment is only helpful when the referenced docs are quite clear, which Keysight's glossary plug in docs aren't. A more helpful answer would answer the question "What am I missing."
