Teams use Confluence for the collaborative creation and storing of knowledge base content. The result is often greater engagement, transparency, and efficiency -- and lots of content pages. As collaboration and knowledge-sharing increase, information can grow quickly, making it difficult to manage, store and index.
Storing and sharing restricted content becomes even more challenging when you have a lot of users storing sensitive information, such as passwords, in multiple locations spread across multiple spaces in Confluence.
This is a common headache, and there’s a solution.
By combining the best features of three ServiceRocket apps, Confluence admins can easily build a “Password Manager” page to consolidate passwords stored on different pages across multiple spaces in one easily accessible and convenient location.
Security and Encryption for Confluence Cloud is built to protect sensitive or restricted information by allowing admins to encrypt, manage and audit passwords or other sensitive information. Use the Secure Macro to encrypt password data and display it as a simple inline button.
Using dynamic forms and metadata, Scaffolding Forms and Templates for Confluence Cloud structures data, making it easy to summarize, evaluate and create business insights and reporting.
With Reporting for Confluence Cloud, you can gain access to metadata from page, user, space and even attachment properties. See it all in one custom dashboard tailored to suit your needs.
