Selenium Script to remove users from all groups in Confluence.

Hello Friends,

This is one of the tutorials for Confluence users where they can use the Selenium script as an automation for removing the users from all the groups in Confluence. In this tutorial, I have used one xml file which will contain the usernames and one java file that will contain the selenium script and other java code. The java code will fetch the usernames from the xml file and will perform the required actions at confluence end. The other selenium related details have already been discussed in my previous blogs. So, without discussing it further, lets move to the point.

Slideshow effect on Confluence Wiki Page/Blog.

Hello Friends,

This is one of my tutorial related to confluence. One who use confluence and have their space over there, they must be familiar with the blog posts. The blog posts are used to create the blogs and add the information of our choice to keep it safe for our further reference.

As you know that Confluence uses wiki language for editing or scripting. Using this wiki language you can add data to your confluence pages and blogs. Confluence itself does not provide the animation for the images we place in the blogs. But it does not restrict us to create our own animation using jQuery and HTML.

As we can use the html tags inside wiki, we have to create animation for ourself. In this tutorial we will create the simple slideshow type animation using wiki and html tags. In this we will try to move the images one after the other.

Here we will use simple marquee tag of html. Following is the code for this, you just have to edit the blog or page in confluence and paste it into the wiki code.

As shown, the html code is included within the wiki code.

Make sure that there is no space between the images you add in the wiki that needs to be shown in the slideshow, e.g !imgname1.jpg!!imgname2.jpg!

Just have a try at this. Even there are other methods of doing this, using jQuery plugin is one of them, this is one of the simplest one, i guess.

Hope this will help you.



Creating Space In Confluence.

Hello friends,

Welcome to my tutorial. This tutorial is for the confluence users.

Confluence is a web-based corporate wiki written in Java and mainly used in corporate environments. It is developed and marketed by Atlassian. Confluence is sold as either on-premises software or as a hosted solution. Confluence allows the information from one team or department to be shared with all other teams and departments within the particular organization. Confluence is used for intranets, knowledge management and documentation.

Just like in Jira we create our personal projects, here in confluence we can have our own space. This space allows us to save different information on a same platform. We can share the space with other people if we want to or we can restrict certain pages that needed to be hidden from other users.

Content in Confluence is organised into spaces. A space is where your pages live, where your news is posted, and where your mail is archived. Permissions determine who can view or contribute to the content of a space.There is no limit to how many spaces you can create.It also provides various security tools that we may discuss in later tutorials. But for now we will learn how to create a space of our own on confluence.

First of all the user is needed to have the administrators rights to create the space, unless he is the confluence-admin he cant create the space. Now following are the steps to create the space on confluence dashboard.

Step 1) Open the browser window and browse to confluence Dashboard page.

Step 2) Now click the link create a space on the toolbar as shown in above image.  Once you click that link another page will be displayed, that may look like this-

Step 3) Once you click on OK button, the space will be created. It May look like as follows.

Step 4) Now here is your space, with this you can add various things onto your space such as pages, news etc. For that goto the top right corner of the window. There you will get various options.

Step 5) To add new page move the mouse to Add button and a drop down will open, then select Page.

Step 6) Once you click the Page, a new window will be opened and it will prompt you for the name of the new page. Along with that a Edit box will be there, there we have to add the macros. Now I will discuss macros in later blogs.

Step 7) Similarly you can edit the pages you added even after you added them. For editing you have to go to Edit link and put the contents in it. In this way a simple space can be created on Confluence.

Hope this will help you.
