About IU Enterprise Confluence

On this page:


Overview

IU Enterprise Confluence allows teams in support of the Indiana University community to easily publish, organize, and access team/department information. Keep your site and content secure with granular permissions that allow you to control pages as viewable to the world, or as viewable and editable by only a few.

Confluence works in conjunction with JIRA.

  • Project collaboration: Create, share, and collaborate on projects in one place. Supports multimedia and dynamic content.
  • Team documentation: Capture, store, and add to your team documentation.
  • Knowledge base: Easily publish, organize, and access your information in one central location. Share PDFs, Microsoft Office files, images, and more. Automatic versioning, instant previews, full-text search, and pinned comments make it easy to manage files.
  • Team calendars: Plan Jira software releases, plan projects, or schedule team leave, travel, and events.

For information on how to use Confluence, including examples and links to documentation, visit Testing Tools Support and drill into Confluence, or see the Confluence description.

UITS continues to add features and fix bugs, and encourages your comments and participation. Send requests to the Jira/Confluence mail queue.
