If you do not follow the instructions on this page, your evaluation of iFinder Universal Search for Confluence is likely to fail.





Please follow these 4 obligatory steps to try out iFinder in Confluence

Anonymous evaluation


1. Install the app from the Atlassian Marketplace and obtain a license.



Confluence administrators should be comfortable with this.

2. Create a Confluence user group called "ifinder_universal_plugin".



Go to the administration area and create a Confluence user group called "ifinder_universal_plugin".

3. Create a user called "admin", "pwinter" or "tschroeder".



Only users with these names have the right to search in our demonstration data search server. So if you try this with another user, you will see no search results. If you already have a user called "admin" and want to use it for your tests, you can skip this step.

4. Add the user to the "ifinder_universal_plugin" group.



Please make sure that the user you have just created is a member of the "ifinder_universal_plugin" group. If not, please add them.
