Connect cookbook

This cookbook provides snippets of code you can use in Confluence Cloud apps built with Connect.

Forge is our recommended platform for building Atlassian cloud apps. See the cloud development platform overview for a comparison between Forge and Connect.

Getting Confluence spaces

This retrieves a list of spaces from Confluence. If there are many spaces in your instance, you might need to page through the results to see all of them.

AP.request({
  url: '/rest/api/space',
  success: function(response) {
    // convert the string response to JSON
    response = JSON.parse(response);

    // dump out the response to the console
    console.log(response);
  },
  error: function() {
    console.log(arguments);
  }  
});

Getting specific spaces from Confluence

This code requests a specific Confluence space by space key. In this example, the space key is ds. The result also provides some high-level information about the space. If you're looking for more information about a space, you can find out about the content in the space in the next example, using /rest/api/space/{space.key}/content.

AP.request({
  url: '/rest/api/space/ds',
  success: function(response) {
    // convert the string response to JSON
    response = JSON.parse(response);

    // dump out the response to the console
    console.log(response);
  },
  error: function() {
    console.log(arguments);
  }   
});

Getting pages in a space

This code returns a collection for a given space key (ds in the example below) containing objects representing content such as pages and blog posts.

var space
AP.request({
  url: '/rest/api/space/ds/content',
  success: function(response) {
    // convert the string response to JSON
    response = JSON.parse(response);

    // dump out the response to the console
    console.log(response);
  },
  error: function() {
    console.log(arguments);
  }    
});

Using multiple webhooks

To listen for more than one event type, add webhooks to the webhooks module of your app descriptor, and add a route handler for each.

Here is an example modules section showing two webhooks:

1
2
"modules": {
         "webhooks": [
            {
                "event": "page_viewed",
                "url": "/page_viewed"
            },
            {
                "event": "comment_created",
                "url": "/comment_created"
            }
        ]
    }

Here are some minimal route handlers to match:

1
2
app.post('/page_viewed', addon.authenticate(), function (req, res) {
            console.log("Account ID " + req.body.userAccountId + " viewed page '" + req.body.page.title + "' at URL '" + req.body.page.self + "'.");
        }
    );

    app.post('/comment_created', addon.authenticate(), function (req, res) {
            console.log("Comment created.");
        }
    );
