    Is Office365 SharePoint supported by the connector?

  2. I also would like to know about connecting Office365 Sharepoint to Confluence.

    1. Hi Eric,

      Office365 is not supported by the Confluence SharePoint Connector. Please vote & watch  CSI-683  for updates.

       

      1. How many votes are needed? Any timeline you can provide?

  3. The online information available for Confluence SharePoint Connector is lacking examples of how it works.  Are there any tutorials or videos available?  We use both Confluence and SharePoint and this sounds like it MIGHT be a workable solution for us, at least on a department/organizational level.  When attempting to contact Atlassian for more information, the form requires something called the Support Entitlement Number, and the instructions provided for getting it don't work.  Our Wiki administrator left the company, and no one seems to know how to get the SEN, so Atlassian seems to be throwing up a series of roadblocks – not helpful! 

  4. Can I connect to to more than one sharepoint environments using this connector?

    1. Hi SimratPal Singh, yes you can connect Confluence to multiple SharePoint servers in different environment as long as on that each environment the solution package of connector is installed. 

      1. Thinh Hua thanks for your reply mate. By "solution package" you mean the piece that has to be installed on Sharepoint for this integration, right? That means Sharepoint connector in Confluence and each of the sharpoint instances with what you called"solution package"

        Is there any  documentation, you can direct me to?

  5. Is the OpenSearch plugin still a requirement for proper Confluence  <-->   SharePointConnector functionality?

  6. Hi Robert Fox, with SP connector version 1.8 and above, open search servlet is bundled with SP connector. No separate open search plugin is required. You can refer to this question for more detail  https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/10404241/answers/10406585?flashId=555956052

  7. Is it possible to simply embed our entire Confluence site within Sharepoint?

    I don't want to have to embed every Confluence page/space as its own sharepoint page. That is, can users navigate the entire Confluence site just with the Sharepoint "bar" at the top of the page so they're "in Sharepoint"?

    Would love any thoughts on how to best fulfill this use case (offering a link in SP to click-through to Confluence won't meet the need).

  8. Hi Eric S one way to embed entire Confluence site into SharePoint is to use page viewer webpart of SharePoint. It's actually an iframe. But by using page viewer webpart your users may need to login twice when you browse the SharePoint site and Confluence site.

  9. Can I upload documents into a SharePoint repository from Confluence with SharePoint Connector?

    1. Hi Gene G, at the moment integration from Confluence to SharePoint is read only so upload document from Confluence to SP is not possible now.

  10. Hello, 

    Do you know when will the plugin become compatible with the latest Confluence 5.8.4?

    Thanks,

    Pierre
