Installation

Installing the app

You can easily install the Better Content Archiving for Confluence app using the Universal Plugin Manager (UPM) that is built into Confluence.

You can install it in two different ways. We highly recommend the first approach for your convenience. You should use the second approach only if the server that hosts your Confluence instance has no access to the Atlassian Marketplace, i.e. when direct Confluence-server-to-Marketplace-server communication is not possible.

Installing directly from Atlassian Marketplace
  1. Login to Confluence as administrator, go to Confluence AdministrationAdd-onsFind new add-ons and search for the term "better content archiving".
  2. Click Install at the entry of "Better Content Archiving for Confluence" in the search results.
  3. Click Manage add-ons in the left and check whether "Better Content Archiving for Confluence" is visible in the User-installed add-ons list, and whether it is enabled.
Installing by uploading the app JAR
  1. Download the app JAR from its version history page at Atlassian Marketplace. Make sure that you download the app version correctly matching your Confluence Server version.
  2. Login to Confluence as administrator, go to Confluence AdministrationAdd-onsManage add-ons and click Upload add-on in the right.
  3. Click Browse, select the better-content-archiving-for-confluence-x.y.z.jar that you just downloaded, and upload it.
  4. Check whether "Better Content Archiving for Confluence" is visible in the User-installed add-ons list, and whether it is enabled.
