SharePoint Connector for Confluence/Jira

Copper Contributor

Anyone familiar with the Communardo connector for atlassian. We are looking into integrate Sharepoint with Confluence/Jira and want to know if a person on SharePoint is not licensed for Jira/Confluence, will they be able to see the page from Jira/Confluence?

Hi @mthiru635,

The SharePoint Connector for Confluence and Jira by Communardo stands out as a best tool for integration between SharePoint and Atlassian's Confluence and Jira.

This tool empowers users to effortlessly embed, share, and edit SharePoint documents within the Confluence wiki, while also providing the capability to integrate Jira issues into SharePoint for enhanced task management.

Regarding SharePoint users lacking a Jira/Confluence license, the situation is not so simple.
Active users without a Confluence license have limited access, only able to view pages without the ability to like, comment, edit, access the dashboard, use the space directory, view user profiles, or perform a full site search.

Nevertheless, there are methods to grant access to unlicensed users for specific Confluence spaces linked to a Jira Service Management project. This means that only users designated as customers or agents on a Service Management project will be able to view Confluence pages without requiring a license.

We have about 1000 employees but only 149 users in Jira and 127 users in Confluence. I want to know with confidence all users regardless of licence can view (without click through/edit) Confluence/Jira on SharePoint. If we embed a confluence wiki space or Jira story board would any user be able to see it on SharePoint?

Hi @mthiru635,

thanks for your update.

Regarding your question: 
While unlicensed users may be able to view embedded Confluence or Jira content on SharePoint, their level of interaction and access will be restricted based on the permissions configured in Confluence and Jira.

@mthiru635 Yes, users who are not licensed for Confluence/Jira would still be able to view pages synced from those systems into SharePoint using the Communardo connector, with some caveats: The SharePoint administrator would need to configure permissions in SharePoint so external users can access the synced Confluence/Jira content.

 

By default, it syncs content into SharePoint with internal access only. For Jira issues synced into SharePoint, external users would be able to view the basic issue details like summary, description, status, etc. However, they wouldn't have the full Jira editing/tracking capabilities without a Jira license.

 

For Confluence pages, externals users would have read-only access to those pages synced from Confluence into SharePoint. But they wouldn't be able to edit them without a Confluence license.
