We deploy updates to Confluence Cloud frequently. As a Confluence developer, it's important that you're aware of the changes. The resources below will help you keep track of what's happening.

Important! Deprecation notice for API changes to improve user privacy

On 1 October 2018 we announced that several Confluence Cloud REST APIs are being deprecated in order to improve user privacy. Before continuing, please read the deprecation notice and migration guide.

Recent announcements

Documentation updates

We're making improvements to our tutorials so that you can find what you need to learn:

  • All the tutorials have been renamed so that you can tell at a glance what each one teaches
  • Creating a dynamic macro (formerly "Rise of the macros") has been rewritten to be simpler and more useful

We've made some changes to the Security section of our documentation so that it is easier to use:

  • Consolidated the Security pages into one section
  • Moved all the overview content to one place
  • Made it easier to see the information about frameworks
  • Put all the JWT instructions together
  • Clarified the choices about security approaches

Don't worry: no information has been removed, and redirects have been put in place so that your bookmarks will still get you to the information you are looking for.

Atlassian Developer blog

Major changes that affect Confluence Cloud developers are announced in the Atlassian Developer blog, like new Confluence modules or the deprecation of API end points. You'll also find handy tips and articles related to Confluence development.
