Version of Confluence required

The Aspire Confluence connector was created and tested using the version Confluence 5.7 and it should work with newer versions too. It must be Confluence on-premise though. There is no support for Confluence Cloud version yet. It will not work with earlier Confluence versions which do not have support for REST API.

Before installing the Confluence connector, make sure that:

  • Confluence is up and running.
  • The Confluence REST API is available.
  • Confirm that the remote API is enabled on Confluence; for more information see here
  • You have all the certificates you need to log into the site if your Confluence instance is in a secure connection (HTTPS)
  • You have a Confluence client login with sufficient permissions to crawl documents for indexing (at least Admin level permissions)

User Account Requirements 

In order to access Confluence a user account with sufficient privileges must be supplied. It is recommended that the account be the site administrator.

Windows or Linux

The Aspire Confluence connector can run on either Windows or Linux. It uses REST API and for some requests also web services over HTTP or HTTPS to communicate with Confluence.

Confluence web services used are:

  • Confluence Remote API V2 for Confluence 5+

These services should be started and running automatically if Confluence is up and running. These are required for the Aspire Confluence Connector to successfully connect with the Confluence docbase that you want to index.
