A collection of tools for integration and information exchange between Atlassian Confluence and Alfresco, and possibily other CMSes.
The current Alfresco Plugin for Confluence provides a set of custom macros that enable Confluence wiki pages to display or embed Alfresco documents or document metadata through ID reference, Path reference or CMIS Search Query. The expectation is that we can provide a seamless experience to users of both platforms:
- Search integration within Alfresco: By adding OpenSearch capabilities to Confluence, Alfresco is now able to aggregate search results from Confluence wiki pages and the Alfresco repository. So, for example, a user logged into Alfresco will be able to retrieve data from documents hosted in an Alfresco repository and any Confluence page she's got access to. This is a good example of what open standards and extensible systems can offer.
- New macros for Confluence, providing wiki users with the ability to interact with an Alfresco repository in a number of ways, such as:
- Browse an Alfresco repository
- Reference (link) and embed (display directly) documents stored in Alfresco
- Build custom reports (such as listing documents that match specified criteria) by running queries against the Alfresco repositories
- Use Web Scripts or CMIS: As an added bonus, macros are implemented using either Alfresco-specific technologies such as Web Scripts or a pure standard-based approach (CMIS). The Web Scripts technology is very, very cool and opens the door to do some interesting new capabilities for Confluence.
