Log into mobile devices
Register with a QR code
You can register quickly and easily by scanning a QR code in the app.
Open your Confluence profile on your computer. If the Linchpin Mobile app is installed, you will see a "Linchpin Mobile" tab. Select this tab then click on "Generate QR-Code".
The QR code is generated and you can log in to your app with this QR code.
You can register only once with each QR code. If you want to register again or a second device, you must generate a new QR code.
Open the mobile app and tap "Scan QR-Code"in the upper right corner. Scan the QR code on your screen with the mobile device's camera and you will then be logged directly into your Confluence system. Before you log in, you can give this instance a name. This name may be changed whenever you log in.
If you have scanned the QR code once, this access is saved and you will always be able to access the instance, even without generating a new QR code.
When you log in using the QR code, you will automatically use the gateway service. More information can be found here.
Register without a QR code
If you want to log in to Linchpin Mobile without a QR code, select "Add System" in the app. Specify the corresponding protocol on the screen that is displayed, either http:// or https://, and your server address.
Tap "Next" and enter your access data (username and password).
Give your instance a name so that you can easily find it in the list of instances.
Communication between Confluence and your mobile device is secured by end-to-end encryption only if you select the https:// protocol option.
In the News section, you can see news articles from your company.
By default, you can choose between Corporate and Personal News.
You can set and change this option from within your Confluence instance on your desktop.
