"Confluence Server for Slack (Official)"plug-in is outdated

Is there any information available when a version is released that is compatible to the current version of confluence server? I may remind that this plug-in is the official(!) solution of the integration of what is pretending to be your designated groupware for more than a year now!

Hey there!

The release currently available on Marketplace will work with the latest Confluence Server releases in the 7.3.x line. While it shows incompatible in the plugin manager currently if you are on 7.3.1 or above (in 7.3.x), there are no changes in Confluence in the 7.3 line that would affect the plugin. We are working on updating Marketplace to list the plugin as compatible with the latest 7.3 releases, so that you'll no longer see the "incompatible" tag in Confluence itself for the Confluence Server for Slack plugin.

We are working on improving the speed at which we test compatibility and update Marketplace for the Slack connector app. As some general guidance however, nearly all plugins marked compatible with a minor version release (such as 7.3.0 or 7.4.0) should be compatible with further bugfix releases in that line (such as 7.3.5 or 7.4.1) even if they haven't been explicitly marked as compatible yet by the app vendor.

Thanks for being vigilant in checking for plugin compatibility!


Hi Daniel,

It seems the app is mostly functional for Confluence 7.3.4.

Notifications are still functioning, but our 'preview functionality' stopped working after we updated Confluence yesterday. Can you verify this is an issue with the current version of this app in combination with the mentioned version of Confluence?

Kind regards,

Hi Martijn,

Some of the functionality of the app requires that your Confluence instance is externally accessible by Slack. It sounds like there may be some issue with that, as you mentioned outgoing notifications to Slack are currently working.

There are some troubleshooting steps you can follow in the app documentation to help diagnose if Slack is able to connect to the app. In particular, you can run a quick check (preferably from outside your network / not connected to VPN) to test connectivity:

curl -X POST \
  https://<confluence-base-url>/rest/slack/latest/event \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -H "X-Slack-Request-Timestamp: $(date +%s)" \
  -H 'X-Slack-Signature: any-value' \
  -d '{"challenge": "boo","type": "url_verification"}'


@Daniel Eads Thank you very much for your efforts! The plug-in seems to work properly with Confluence Server 7.4.0 by now. A minor issue may be that the entry of the plug-in in configuration menu is not labeled in the right way:

Whoa, that was a fast one, thank you :)
