One of the goals of any information-based organization is to make the information its members need readily available. Confluence can be used to make publishing this information as easy as possible. Confluence is a “wiki” collaborative environment that is broken up into “Spaces.” Each space can have collaboratively edited pages, which in turn can contain various kinds of attachments.

Choose an option below to get started.

Requesting a Confluence Space

When a team needs a new space to maintain their internal documents they need to do the following:

  • Determine a space Name (can be changed later)
  • Determine a space Key (can not be changed later – no more than 5 characters long)
  • Define the purpose of the space
  • Determine who needs to access it (see sections on Space permissions)
  • Fill out an eCAT to request the new space

Space Permissions

  • Space-admins – able to adjust permissions within the space and other administrative tasks
  • Space-users – able to create/edit/export pages within the space and adjust permissions on a per-page basis
  • Space-guests – able to view pages within the space, but can not edit or comment on them
