SharePoint Connector for Confluence 2.0 - a look behind the scenes

We provide an exclusive preview of the SharePoint Connector for Confluence with support for SharePoint Online. Get the news first on our blog!

When will SharePoint Online or Office 365 be supported?

Many cus­to­mers have asked us about whe­ther the SharePoint Connector for Confluence sup­ports SharePoint Online or Office 365. In fact Support for SharePoint Online is the hig­hest voted issue in our JIRA Project for the SharePoint Connector for Confluence - by far! But to be honest, the ans­wer to this ques­tion is: Not yet, but we are giving our best!

SharePoint Connector for Confluence - Development status update

SharePoint Connector for Confluence 2.0 will bring sup­port for SharePoint Online!

We are cur­r­ently deve­lo­ping and tes­ting a new ver­sion which we will release as ver­sion 2.0. As we are having a strong focus on usa­bi­lity and user expe­ri­ence, the new ver­sion of the SharePoint Connector will allow a far easier instal­la­tion, admi­nis­tra­tion and usage for the end user than the cur­rent solu­tion. So bes­i­des sup­por­ting new plat­forms this will indeed repre­sent a major over­haul of the pro­duct with lots of addi­tio­nal bene­fits for both sys­tem admi­nis­tra­tors and end users.

Unfortunately, this is a lot more com­plex than it sounds, since SharePoint 2013 Microsoft sup­ports the add-in struc­ture. In com­pa­ri­son, the cur­rent SharePoint Connector is a solu­tion, which is not sup­por­ted by SharePoint Online. From a tech­ni­cal point of view, this requi­res a lot of source code to be com­ple­tely rewrit­ten from scratch so it will take some more time. As pre­viously sta­ted, we are plan­ning to have a working pro­duct avail­able later this year, so a little pati­ence is still needed.

Just to be on the safe side: the above ani­ma­tion is sub­ject to change until the final pro­duct is avail­able. But it should give an idea about where we are hea­ding to (Zwinkern)
