Add or Edit a Confluence Self-Hosted Source

When you have the required privileges, you can add the content of a Confluence instance (5.7 to 6.12.4 on-premises installations) to your Coveo Cloud organization. The source can be shared, private, or secured (see Content Security).

The Coveo Confluence Plugin available for on-premises (server) Confluence instances allows the Coveo Cloud platform to manage permissions associated with each Confluence items so that users only see Confluence content in Coveo search results to which they normally have access in Confluence itself. The plugin is also needed to perform refreshes of the source content.

By default, a Confluence source starts a rescan every hour to retrieve Confluence item changes (addition, modification, or deletion).

  • If you change the name of a space in Confluence, the rescan detects the change only for pages created or modified following the change. You must rebuild the source to get the space name change on all space pages (see Refresh, Rescan, or Rebuild Sources).

  • For clients migrating from Coveo Enterprise Search 7.0 (CES 7), the following source has the same specifications as the Confluence V2 connector (see Atlassian Confluence V2 Connector).
