I gave you a brief overview of the basic features of the Google App Maker in my previous post, and now I want to look at the scripting possibilities. The App Maker supports the creation of both client and server scripts.
App Maker is a browser-based development tool to create and deliver custom applications for Google G Suite both easily and reliably. Google calls the App Maker a “low-code tool”. In fact, you don’t necessarily need a developer; most of the work is done via intuitive interfaces with the tool providing useful guidance.
In a webinar with co-host Levente Szabo, we discuss how the Midori Archiving Plugin improves the quality of Confluence, what options and possibilities are available to businesses with systematic content lifecycle management processes, and also why misgivings surround the automated archiving of Confluence pages.
Custom User Profile is a Confluence extension (app) which supplements the user profiles in Confluence with extensive useful information and options. Let’s take a closer look at two features: customized user lists with more flexibility, and dynamic links in user profiles.
The Atlassian Marketplace is huge. There are hundreds of developers offering thousands of apps on the platform for all imaginable scenarios. And finding the right solution on it is not so simple when it comes to specific problems and applications. To provide you with an overview, we have selected and compiled well-developed app solutions for use cases which customers always ask us about. The result is the new use case library in our knowledge base.
The App Center extends Confluence by offering users the ability to include links to web-based applications (Apps) that are being used within your company: Via a simple dialog, users can click and collect the apps that they use from a list of all available applications. Then they can go directly to exactly those applications that they need for their daily work. Version 1.3 of the App Center, providing more flexibility and new features for both users and administrators.
App Center is a Confluence app and also a part of the social intranet suite developed by us – Linchpin – which allows users to access the applications, tools and resources they frequently need for their daily work from within Confluence – for example, time tracking, other Atlassian tools, online applications, websites and so on. Now, administrators can configure the visibility of all apps in the selection dialog.
With scripts, you can extensively customize Jira (screens, custom fields, and more), automate complex workflows, create custom listeners to react to specific events, and enhance Jira’s reporting and integration capabilities. However, many scripting apps that plug into Jira don’t give you access to the full API, or use horribly complex scripting languages. But Power Scripts for Jira makes scripting easy.
With Confluence Data Center, Atlassian is addressing the increasing technical requirements that large companies are placing on their internal software systems. This includes straightforward and fast scalability, high availability and performance even under heavy use and the reduction of unforeseen and planned downtime. In recent weeks, our product teams have worked intensively to make our own products meet these requirements: The key components of our Confluence-based social intranet suite Linchpin are now Data Center compatible!
With Microblogging for Confluence, you can extend your company’s wiki and collaboration system with a feature set that offers modern, fast, straightforward social media functionality within Confluence – with timelines, comments and likes, topics to subscribe to, unread post indicators, and more. Microblogs let teams rapidly exchange, share and discuss ideas, they are great for internal announcements – the applications of microblogging are diverse. Our development team has just delivered Microblogging for Confluence version 3.1, which delivers a practical Hipchat integration.
