Adding a Confluence Legacy Source

You can add the content of a Confluence instance to your Coveo organization. The source can be private, shared or secured (see Source Permission Types).

The Coveo Confluence Plugin available for on-premises Confluence instances allows the Coveo Cloud Platform to manage permissions associated with each Confluence item so that users only see Confluence content in Coveo search results to which they have normally access in Confluence itself. Because you cannot install this plugin in Confluence On-Demand, Coveo cannot index permissions for this content.

  • As of February 14, 2017, the Confluence source is no longer supported and was renamed Confluence Legacy. The Confluence Legacy source is not available in new Coveo Cloud V1 organizations. You must contact Coveo Support to request the source. The only relevant use case for this source is when your Confluence instance version is between 5.5 and 5.7. 5.5 to 5.7 are versions that are no longer supported by Confluence and not supported by the second generation Confluence source (see Adding a Confluence Source).

  • The second generation Confluence source uses the Confluence REST API (see Adding a Confluence Source and Adding a Confluence Cloud Source). It is strongly recommended to use the new Confluence sources with the benefit of source refresh support and significantly better source creation and update performance, among other things.

  • The Confluence source does not support incremental refresh. A source full refresh is required to update the source content (see Modify a Source Schedule).

  • If you change the name of a space in Confluence, the full refresh 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 Rebuild a Source).
