Confluence has been updated to version 6.15.9

This page shows how to start synchronization.

Navigate to the Connections tab in the Exalate admin menu

1. Initiate Connection 

2. Choose Destination instance type

Based on the type Exalate knows how to communicate with the Destination Instance.

You can synchronize with the following types of instances:

  • Public - the destination instance which is in a public network and you can access it from your side.
  • Private - the destination instance which is in a private network or behind the firewall and you cannot access it from your side. 
  • Local - the destination is the same instance. Use the local connection to synchronize local projects


The configuration depends on the connection type.

3. Specify Connection information

Destination instance URL - available only for public connections

Instance short names are used to name both sides of the synchronization. The connection name is based on the instances' short names. 

4. Choose sync rules template 

The connection between instances requires sync behavior configuration on both sides. Exalate generates default sync rules to synchronize basic issue fields. You can adapt the Sync Rules later.

5. Initiate Connection

The connection has been successfully created. Your side is set up. 

5. Send an invitation to your partner

Copy the invitation message and send it to the administrator of the destination side. 

Connection Invitation helps to send a pre-configured invitation to your partner. It ensures that communication with the Destination Instance is correct and you can start syncing issues. 

If your Connection is local, you don't need to send the invitation.

What's next? 

Configure Sync Rules using Groovy-based scripting. For more details check basic configuration guides.

Once your partner Accepts the invitation, you can start syncing issues.

Once the other side accepts your invitation your connection will be activated. Refresh Connections page to see Connection status change.
