Confluence has been updated to version 6.15.9

This page shows how to configure a synchronization if you have an invitation code.

The invitation includes pre-populated connection details such as Connection name, Destination URL and Communication type. You are only required to finish the configuration by accepting the invitation.

Navigate to the Connections tab in the Exalate admin menu

1. Accept invitation

Click Accept invitation button to open the intuitive wizard.



2. Paste the Invitation code

The Invitation code is validated automatically. Click Next button to proceed. 

The Exalate app tests connection and detects, whether the Destination side is accessible from your instance or not and detects the Connection type.

3. Choose Sync Rules template

 The connection between instances requires sync behavior configuration on both sides. 

 You need to specify which issue data you want to send, and the project for incoming sync requests.

 It's required because Exalate creates issues whenever synchronization is received. 


Single project synchronization does not require scripting. 

Advanced synchronization requires setting local project key and issue typeName for incoming sync requests directly in scripts.

Note!

Single project synchronization template is available only on the Create Connection step.

Connection editing is performed in the advanced template mode.

4. Specify Sync Rules details and Confirm

 Single project synchronization

 Single project synchronization does not require scripting.

Please, select the project for incoming sync requests to generate default sync rules. 
 By default the following issue data will be synchronized: summary, description, type, comments, attachments and labels.
You can adjust generated scripts later by editing the connection.



 Advanced synchronization

Advanced synchronization requires setting local project key and issue typeName for incoming sync requests directly in scripts.

Shortcut to validate scripts

CTRL+1 helps to validate scripts and move to the next step.

Notify your partner that you have accepted the Invitation and synchronize issues.
