Search and Replace in Confluence

When creating and updating documentation, it is often necessary to search for and replace text fragments. If, for example, a product name changes, authors need to update every single occurrence within their documentation. What if there was a way to automate this process? Atlassian Confluence’s built-in editor features a handy search-and-replace tool. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer a way to exchange strings on multiple pages, across spaces or throughout the entire collaboration platform – and it’s unlikely that such a feature will be added any time soon. Instead, Confluence’s product managers point us to the Atlassian Marketplace, where third-party developers can provide suitable add-ons. In this blog post, I’ll take a closer look at one solution – available for Confluence 5 and above – that will help you search and replace Confluence content like a pro.

Putting It On the Table - Managing Tabular Content in Confluence

In medieval times, merchants used an Exchequer table to perform calculations for taxes and goods – and tables have been considered the best way to compile and compare data ever since. Tables can display large volumes of structured information in a highly compact and logical way. And today, spreadsheets enable us to calculate and process data electronically. Technical communicators rely on tables and comparison matrices to provide their readers with value-added information. So when using Atlassian Confluence to manage and distribute documentation, they need to be able to create tabular data, too. But Confluence is a collaboration platform and wiki, and wasn’t specifically built to handle complex tables or manage spreadsheet calculations. So can it be used to build, manage, style and calculate tabular content with ease?

Webinar - How CA Technologies Broke the Rules - The DocOps Approach to Agile Technical Content

On December 16, James Turcotte, SVP, Business Unit Executive of CA Technologies, gave a presentation on how Computer Associates keeps product documentation updated and improves turn-over time. In this presentation, James coined the term DocOps, describing it as the sibling of DevOps. Support agents, developers and, of course, technical communicators cooperate to deliver value to the customer. They do this by continuously improving documentation and knowledge management, even after release. We are delighted that our very own Scroll Versions enabled them to manage their content in Confluence.

At our second ShipIt day, we didn't have a winner team, but we've got two. One of the winning projects was our 3D object viewer for Confluence.   In this blogpost, let me introduce our ShipIt project that brings Confluence into the three-dimensional world. In addition, you'll find some impressions from our most recent coding contest.
