Does this Backbone Issue Sync for JIRA can sync also confluence?



I am analyzing the possibilities of using this addon. However, I was wondering if it also applies to confluence or it is just Jira Issues.

I mean, we can manage the issues in Jira, but we also use confluence for documentation. The general issue that we have with our partner is that we have a restricted environment (it needs vpn and some legal issues).

So, I was wondering if the addon permits both, a secure connection, and if it has something specific to handle comfluence.

Thanks in advance

Hi Pau,

Interesting question, we (here at K15t Software, the makers of Backbone Issue Sync for Jira) actually had some internal discussions about this, but don't have anything in the pipeline at the moment.

What you could try out (if your instances can communicate via an application link), is to use Scroll Versions in combination with the Scroll Remote Publishing Endpoint.

The combination of those two apps allow you to author your content in one instance and then publish the content to another remote instance (see Publish to a remote Confluence instance) to make it available to your external partner.

Difference to Backbone, where the sync is done automatically based on a set interval, you'd need to re-publish to the remote instance manually (or semi-automated using REST), if changes are done on the internal instance.

Both Scroll Versions and Scroll Remote Publishing are available in the Atlassian Marketplace and can be tested for free using an evaluation license.

Hope that helps, please let us know if you have any additional questions (either here, or via We'll be happy to help.



Thanks, we will look into it.
