Article Summary

Many organizations around the world use wiki for storing project-related artifacts. One of those popular wiki platforms is Confluence, which makes it easy for teams to store artifacts securely and collaborate on projects.

Confluence provides team workspaces as it helps team structure, organize, and share work, so every team member has visibility into institutional knowledge and access to the information they need to do their best work. You can create pages or blogs to give your team a place to create, capture, and collaborate on any project or idea.


You have chosen Document360 as your Knowledge base platform. You have chosen Confluence as your team collaboration platform. When a new blog post or page is created in Confluence, you want to create a corresponding knowledge base article in Document360.

Currently, no direct integration option is available between Confluence and Document360 from either of the platforms.
