Add/Edit Confluence Legacy Source - Panel

  • Deprecated   The Confluence legacy source is not available by default in Coveo Cloud V2 licenses. 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 Add/Edit Confluence Self-Hosted Source - Panel).

  • The second generation Confluence source uses the Confluence REST API (see Add/Edit Confluence Self-Hosted Source - Panel). It is strongly recommended to use the new Confluence source with the benefit of source refresh support and significantly better source creation and update performance, among other things.

When you have the required privileges, you can add the content of a Confluence instance (5.5 to 5.8.5 on-premises installations) to your Coveo Cloud organization. The source can be shared, private, 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 items so that users only see Confluence content in Coveo search results to which they have normally access in Confluence itself.

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

  • The Confluence legacy source does not support refreshes. A source rescan or rebuild is required to keep your content up to date.

  • 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).
