History

Atlassian released Confluence 1.0 on March 25, 2004, saying its purpose was to build "an application that was built to the requirements of an enterprise knowledge management system, without losing the essential, powerful simplicity of the wiki in the process."WEB,weblink Atlassian releases new wiki: Confluence 1.0, Theserverside.com, 2011-09-19, In recent versions, Confluence has evolved into part of an integrated collaboration platformWEB,weblink Wiki tools are not all the same, KMWorld.com, 2009-10-28, 2011-09-19, and has been adapted to work in conjunction with JIRA and other Atlassian software products, including Bamboo, Clover, Crowd, Crucible, and FishEye.WEB,weblink Integrate JIRA and Confluence Wiki, Atlassian.com, 2012-05-10, In 2014, Atlassian released Confluence Data Center to add high availability with load balancing across nodes in a clustered setup.

Analysis

{{Update inline|reason=This paragraph is a decade old and thus obsolete in the current tense -- especially in the field of software.|date=February 2018}} The book Social Media Marketing for Dummies considers Confluence an "emergent enterprise social software" that is "becoming an established player."BOOK,weblink Social Media Marketing For Dummies, 214, Shiv, Singh, Michael, Becker, Ryan, Williams, John Wiley & Sons, 2009-09-26, 978-0-470-28934-1, Wikis for Dummies describes it as "one of the most popular wikis in corporate environments," "easy to set up and use," and "an exception to the rule" that wiki software search capabilities don't work well.BOOK,weblink Wikis for dummies, Dan, Woods, Peter, Thoeny, John Wiley & Sons, 193, 2007-07-23, 978-0-470-04399-8, eWeek cites as new features in version 4 the auto-formatting and auto-complete, unified wiki and WYSIWYG, social network notifications and drag and drop integration of multimedia files.WEB,weblink eWeek, Atlassian Delivers Confluence 4, Darryl K., Taft, 2011-09-19, 2012-03-24, Use cases include basic enterprise communication, collaboration workspaces for knowledge exchange, social networking, Personal Information Management and project management. German newspaper Computerwoche from IDG Business Media compares it to Microsoft SharePoint and finds it "a good starting point" as a platform for social business collaboration, while SharePoint is better suited to companies with more structured processes.WEB, German,weblink Sharepoint versus Confluence und Jive, Jörg, Schmidl , Johannes, Reebs , Oliver, Wucher, yes, Computerwoche, 2012-03-16, 2012-03-24, Confluence includes set up CSS templates for styles and formatting for all pages, including those imported from Word documents. Built in search allows queries by date, the page’s author, and content type such as graphics.The tool has add-ons for integration with standard formats, with a flexible programmable API allowing expansion. The software is relevant as an outline tool for requirements that can be linked to tasks in the JIRA issue tracker by the same company.WEB,weblink Atlassian Blogs, Atlassian Blogs,

Discontinuation of wiki markup language

From version 4.0, released in 201weblink Confluence no longer supports a wiki markup language.WEB, Atlassian,weblink Confluence 4.0 Editor - What's Changed for Users of the Old Rich Text Editor, Atlassian.com, 2018-03-28, This has led to a sometimes-heated discussion from some of the previous versions' users who regret the change.WEB, Atlassian,weblink Confluence 4 Editor - Customer Feedback, Atlassian.com, 2013-04-16, In response, Atlassian has provided a source code editor as a plugin, which allows advanced users the ability to edit the underlying XHTML-based document source.WEB, Atlassian,weblink Specification - Confluence Advanced Editor, Atlassian.com, 2012-04-23, However, although the new source markup is XHTML-based, it is not XHTML compliant.WEB, Atlassian,weblink Confluence Storage Format, Atlassian.com, 21 Mar 2014, We refer to the Confluence storage format as 'XHTML-based'. To be correct, we should call it XML, because the Confluence storage format does not comply with the XHTML definition., Additionally, wiki markup can be typed into the editor and Confluence's autocomplete and auto-format functionality converts the wiki markup to the new format in real time.WEB, Atlassian, Confluence 4.0 Editor - What's Changed for Wiki Markup Users,weblink 2018-03-28, After this real-time conversion, content can never be edited as wiki markup again.

Limitations

There cannot be two pages with the same title within the same namespace, even if they have different parents. This might prove to be a problem when Confluence is meant to be used as a documentation solution with repetitive titles.WEB,weblink [CONFSERVER-2524] Enable creation of same-named pages within a space - Create and track feature requests for Atlassian products., jira.atlassian.com, en, 2017-12-19, NEWS,weblink Handling duplicate page names, 2013-04-04, Atlassian Community, 2017-12-19, en, There is no standard way of adding captions to images, there are only workarounds.WEB,weblink [CONFSERVER-2584] Captions for images - Create and track feature requests for Atlassian products., jira.atlassian.com, en, 2017-12-20,
