How it works
Some of the features in the extended Knowledge Base setup have some prerequisites for your setup, and others are available for all.
For us to be able to get information to show in the Page Tree, then you need to have the following:
- You have the same users in Jira and Confluence (OAuth with Impersonation)
- Anonymous users have access to the Confluence spaces that are used for the knowledge base
When this option is checked, you will see the "Display page tree" option. This will be applied globally.
Display Page Tree
The page tree is displayed on the left hand side of a popup article and allows users to browse Confluence.
No page tree, narrow
Display page tree, wide
Display articles in wide mode
Choose whether your articles should be wide, or narrow in the window. This is applied globally to all popups.
Display article link
Show a link to the article in Confluence below the article to take the user to the right place in Confluence.
Global Search Settings
In version 2.1 there is a new Global Search feature at the top right corner of your page.
To make this work the way you want to, you can make settings for what to search for.
