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. We are pretty exci­ted about that fact (Lächeln)

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.
