In the resulting Application list, select Confluence Cloud.
The Create connection panel opens with required and advanced settings.
Edit the General settings specific to your account and this connection resource.
Name (required): Provide a clear and distinguishable name. Throughout integrator.io imports and exports, you will have the option to choose this new connection, and a unique identifier will prove helpful later when selecting among a list of connections that you’ve created.
Application (required, non-editable): A reminder of the app you’re editing.
At this point, you’re presented with a series of options for providing Confluence Cloud authentication.
Instance URL (required): Enter your Confluence Cloud instance URL. For example, if https://demo.atlassian.net/wiki/home is your instance, then type demo.atlassian.net for this setting.
Username (required): Enter the username of your Confluence Cloud account.
API token (required): Enter the API token provided to you by Confluence Cloud. Multiple layers of protection are in place, including AES 256 encryption, to keep your connection’s API token safe. When editing this form later, you must enter this token again; it is stored only when the connection is saved and never displayed as text.
- Sign in to your Confluence Cloud account.
- Navigate to Profile > Manage your account > Security > API Token > Create and Manage API tokens.
- Click Create API token; to generate a new token. The Create an API token panel opens.
- Enter the Label name.
- Click Create.
- Copy the new API token.
Important: If you do not copy your new API token, you cannot see the token again.
Before continuing, you have the opportunity to provide additional configuration information, if needed, for the Confluence Cloud connection.
Once you have configured the Confluence Cloud connection, you have a few options for continuing:
- Save – click to test the connection, commit the new connection so that it will be available to all integrations for your account
- Save & close – click to test and save the connection and exit the Create connection panel
- Close – click to exit without saving any new changes
- Test connection – click this button to verify that your new connection is free of errors
When you test or save the connection, it is verified before continuing.
The new connection is now successfully added to your account. It will be applied to the current source or destination app if you created it within a flow. Otherwise, you may proceed to register the connection with an integration.
