Confluence Enterprise Wiki
The Confluence Enterprise Wiki is one of the newest additions to the Monash University collaborative research space. Confluence is an enterprise wiki created by Atlassian that provides a secure, stable and customisable wiki environment for users, and relies upon the Monash LaRDS research data store, which provides reliable long term preservation of data.
As a highly-developed and professional-level wiki, Confluence provides access to a number of useful tools and features which include the collaborative creation and modification of both internal and external web pages and wiki pages, and also provides the following:
- Work areas,
- News posts,
- File storage,
- Custom templates, and
- User-configurable skinning.
A showcase featuring a number of Confluence sites is also available here.
Confluence is available to Monash researchers and HDR students, and can be accessed using Authcate. Once logged in, users can immediately begin creating wiki pages, which can then be made editable by others in specific group(s). Such pages can also be made available to external collaborators and the public, depending upon their content.
We would like to encourage all users to examine Confluence in depth and provide feedback, so please begin exploring. If you require any assistance or advice or have any suggestions about how to use Confluence to best meet your needs, please do not hesitate to contact the Monash e-Research Centre, in particular the Monash e-Research Centre .
