Properties: Capture and display information in Confluence cloud

Blueprint Creator goes Cloud: Properties for Confluence Cloud.

Remote and digital work increased drastically in 2020 and are likely to continue on an upward trend in the coming years. Having the right software tools will be essential to your team's daily work. Many organizations use Confluence tools to structure and collaborate on their work and build their primary information source. With Confluence Cloud, Atlassian aims to make content creation and documentation even more intuitive and comfortable for your teams.

You probably know by now that the Blueprint Creator is based on Atlassian's Confluence knowledge management software - more specifically,  Confluence Server or Datacenter. As the ecosystem around Atlassian Cloud continues to grow, the end of the server line impacts app developers as well. To that end, we have been busy developing a cloud version of Blueprint Creator to offer our customers the benefits of Blueprint Creator in the Atlassian Cloud.

Introducing Properties

With the release of Properties, we are delivering an app for the Atlassian Marketplace which can take the Blueprint Creator's values further in the innovative world of Atlassian Cloud. As the new Properties app offers new and improved functionality distinct from the Blueprint Creator functionality, we will be releasing Properties as a standalone cloud app in the Atlassian Marketplace.

New and improved functionality

Property groups

With the Properties installation, users get access to a portal through which properties (formerly placeholders) can be created and grouped into property groups.

Properties macro

The macro can, of course, be included anywhere on a page or template. However, a new feature is that the individual properties' values can also be changed (again and again) in a page's display mode.

Version control

We also give each macro its own log so you can track who made which changes and when. This has been a highly requested feature for Blueprint Creator.
