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.

Magenta advertising banners or flyers, a capital “T” and four dots – who didn’t think about a certain large, German telecommunications company?

You’ll find out why corporate design plays an important role in your Confluence system and how the Linchpin Theme Plugin supports the implementation of your specific corporate design in Confluence in this blog post.
You don’t talk about money – at least not in concrete terms, and never before the start of a project. This seems to be the motto for many providers of intranet solutions.
