Thanks for bearing with us while the migration was underway - we had a few false starts which lead to the outage window taking slightly longer than expected, but now we're up and running on Confluence.
We moved a lot of content from one system to the other - around 210,000 user accounts and 80,000 questions. The goal was to have a 100% success rate for the migrated content, but sadly we didn't quite make it. I wanted to list out some of the content problems that you might see on the site right now, and which we will be working to fix ASAP next week:
If you notice any problems, any missing content, or you have any problems with your user account, please report an issue in the Confluence Questions project on jira.atlassian.com: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CQ
My colleague can't even log in! He get's an error at the id atlassian part of the login. @Andrew Wolpers [BlackPearl PDM] :) I know it's part of the transition process. Let me know if there's a better place to report!! Still excited, Questions looks great!
Hi steven behnke [blackpearl pdm]] - there is a background job running right now which should sort out problems for some users who are not linked to their old account with all the karma and history attached to it - it's working through all the users now and should be done within the next 24hrs. @Andrew Wolpers [BlackPearl PDM] might be running in to https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CQ-1299 - we still don't know what's going on with that but now that the Sydney team is coming online we are going to investigate further.
It seems like pre migration you could control both whether you get an email each time a question is asked with your watched tags and whether you get a daily digest email of activity on your watched tags, however post migration you cannot disable getting an email for each question on your watched topics (without unwatching the topic), but I assume you must watch topics in order to personalize the Recommended Updates email that replaces the daily digest email (noted on https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AAC/Atlassian+Answers+FAQ and found on https://answers.atlassian.com/users/viewmyemailsettings.action), which means that you must get many emails each day (which I'm experiencing) in order to get a relevant daily summary email, is that right?
hi there... I've just posted a problem here: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/5277351/why-do-i-get-emails-from-atlassian-answers-for-topics-i-dont-follow Please let me know how I can fix this... or if you need to do something. thanks!
It seems that the migration made me watch some topics (confluene and confluence-administration), unwatching the topics (on the topics page) should stop the mails. That link is not in the mail sent out. Could it be that the watches are a default setting for users with no previous preferences? Where can I se a list of my watches per topic or question?
@Julien sorry - my mistake - the link is there as it should - I missed it. I was distracted by the fact that the link points to either the question or topic unsubscription - the text beeing the same, and the fact that there is an 'Watch this question' link beefore that the mail is sent by a topic watch...
So under Topics I am not watching Confluence however I am getting e-mail for every single new question in (confluence). Furthermore, I have my settings to *NOT* send me e-mail for watched topics, and it's sending me e-mail. I'm getting an e-mail every few minutes. This is completely out of control.
I'm missing "Browse Questions"... now you have buttons for Recent and unanswered, but that only display a couple of questions. You can't find or see the rest that way.
Sometimes I just like to browse to read about new stuff, learning about JIRA or Confluence or just to see who I can help...
Hope it comes back!
In the previous Answers site, users can see the Karma of the contributing users just beside their answers or comment. I can't see it in this new Confluence Questions Karma. Is it an expected behaviour or we should create a bug/feature request for that.
So far it looks good for me. Can't wait to see the avatar though. Great job mate.
I'm not appreciating the auto-watch on every issue I commented on and every topic I participated in. At least that is what it appears to be from the migration. There does not seem to be a central place to see what I am watching to quickly stop watching them.
When you post an answer to a question in e.g. topic Confluence, you get a popup if you want to watch topic Confluence. I think there's a small percentage of people who would like this, because this is about the whole topic and you'll be flooded with e-mails I have answered 3 questions and I already find it annoying. So.... maybe it's a bit too much service?
I noticed now that that spam is still added (Below is a example)
Full Name is still used from Billing Account not nickname.
Overall finally migration is over however I do not see those recent changes that were gathered and resolved during beta testing phase..
@Joe Clark [Atlassian], is that right?
Hey Mirek, We have the instaban feature and a spam blacklist to try and combat the spammers. Let's continue the discussion about the billing name problem on the relevant JIRA ticket - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CQ-1132 You can see the fixes that we made as a result of the beta testing feeback by looking at this JQL: https://jira.atlassian.com/issues/?filter=51453&jql=project%20%3D%20CQ%20and%20labels%20%3D%20collector-ff4183c9%20and%20resolution%20%3D%20fixed
From your comment, I'm aware that we do not provide a clear link to FAQ and such information is not included for now. So I created this feedback ticket: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CQ-1319 If you have any feedback, feel free to create yours.
Hey team! I'm Cameron Deatsch, Head of Server at Atlassian. I'll be hosting an AMA over in our Questions section of the Community next Monday, so shoot me your questions, upvote others' question...
