IBM Connections Connector for ConfluenceIf you want to make a third-party wiki available to community users, you can integrate Confluence Wiki with the Communities application using the IBM Connections Connector for Confluence Wiki. The connector supports Confluence 3.0.2.
When Confluence Wiki is integrated with a community, a link to the parent wiki page is provided in the navigation sidebar in the community's overview page. Community members automatically become members of the wiki, and any changes to community membership are propagated to the wiki. Community members have access to any feeds associated with the wiki, and attachments and comments on the wiki page are accessible from the community. If the community associated with a Confluence wiki is deleted, the wiki is also deleted.
IBM Connections does not currently support single sign-on for Confluence.
Configure formatting macros for Confluence
You can download a collection of macros for Confluence that allow you to easily format your content.
Setting up an authentication alias
When you install the Confluence connector, an authentication alias is automatically set up on IBM WAS for the superuser to use when managing the Confluence Wiki. However, if your LDAP server requires a bind user, you need to create an alias for the LDAP bind user.
Configure anonymous access
In order to have wiki spaces with the same access settings as IBM Connections communities, and to allow wiki feeds to display within Communities, configure your Confluence server to allow anonymous access.
Setting up the trusted certificate
Add the Confluence server certificate to the IBM Connections server trusted store so that the IBM Connections server trusts the SSL certificate passed from the Confluence server.
