Microblog portal (former action)

The microblog portal is the on place where microposts, advanced search and settings are located. You can get there by clicking the link in the application header.

The microblog portal is also available under: http://<Confluence-URL>/plugins/microblog.action.

(warning) If you updated to 4.0 some functions moved from the macro timeline sidebar to the portal. This includes the settings for "My Spaces & Topics", E-Mail notifications and the advanced search.


Self Service - Microblog Placeholder Macro

If you use some sort of template mechanism to create new spaces (requires other plugins) or space blueprints with a Microblog Timeline, this feature makes it more easier to start microblogging right after creating the new space.

Inserted in one of the template pages, it will be converted to a Microblog Timeline with the newly created space selected. Furthermore it creates a default topic with the name of the new space.

This is the Microblog Placeholder macro in a template space.

This is not a real timeline, but an image of one.

After copying the Template page with the Microblog Placeholder macro, it is replaced with a Microblog Timeline macro which only shows microposts from the current (newly created) space. As you might noticed there was a default topic created which the name of the current space.

You can insert the placeholder macro within the Confluence Default Space Template, so every new Confluence Space contains a microblog timeline and topic.


HipChat integration

Microposts created in space "TEST" will send a notification to Hipchat Room "MB Test".

Requires Confluence HipChat Plugin at least in version 7. You can update it via add-on management in your Confluence instance.


If you already connected your Confluence with Hipchat you may configure notifications on micropost creation per space (See Use HipChat and Confluence together for details). You find the configuration pages under:

  • <base-url>/plugins/servlet/hipchat/configure
  • <base-url>/spaces/hipchat2.action?key=<space-key>

By checking "new Micropost" you may receive a notification in Hipchat everytime a new Micropost is created.

Please note, that Hipchat does not support all html attributes, so the notifications may not look exactly the sam as the post in confluence. For example there images or macros will be stripped.

The notifications provides a link to the original micropost in Confluence.

This is not a real timeline, but an image of one.

By now, we can't say if this integration also works with Stride - stay tuned.
