 What can you sync from Confluence pages with Unito?
  Definition One-way Two-way
Title The name or heading of the page.  
Body The main content or text of the Confluence page.  
Created Date The date when the Confluence page was initially created.  
ID A unique identifier assigned to each Confluence page.  
Labels* A collection of descriptive keywords associated with the page, represented as a string.*   
Link to Page A link to the Confluence page from the other work item.  
Position The placement or order of the page.  
Status The current state or progress.  

*Confluence labels can only be mapped with plain text fields for now, such as descriptions or plain text custom fields.

Due to limitations with Confluence's API, this integration does not yet support filtering or mapping pages by label or creator in Unito's rules. This is expected to change after Atlassian rolls out its next update to the Confluence API.

What does mapping my Confluence page look like in Unito?

Here's an example of a Confluence page being synced to Trello. The labels are mapped to a custom field Type of Documentation, so we'll still be able to see it in Trello as plain text.

Limitations and other considerations for Unito's Confluence integration

Since this is a Lite connector, there are a few things you can't do yet with this Confluence integration:

  • Sync attachments: You won’t be able to sync attachments to (and from) Confluence just yet.

  • 1-Way Sync: Currently, our Confluence integration can only sync information that comes out of a Space.

  • Partial rich text: Some formatting styles, smart chips, emojis and will sync with Unito though they'll appear as plain text. Confluence-specific content such as timelines or custom macros may not sync properly.

  • Labels and statuses: These can only be synced to plain text fields for now, such as descriptions or custom fields.
  • Webhooks: This integration does not yet support webhooks.

  • Rule limitations: For now, you can only filter Confluence pages by creation date in your rules.

  • On-premise installations: This Unito currently only supports the cloud version of Confluence. On-premise versions can't be connected to Unito.
