Query: Skyvia Query supports Confluence.

Confluence-Specific Features and Limitations

Skyvia has the following limitations for Confluence:

  • In the Data Integration product, Confluence connections are supported only for packages, which use a new data integration runtime.

    Make sure that the Use new runtime checkbox is selected on the tab bar if you want to use Confluence in your package.

  • Skyvia supports DML operations for the following Confluence objects:

    • INSERT: SpaceLabel.
    • INSERT, DELETE: ContentLabel, Group.
    • INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE: Content, ContentProperty, Space, SpaceProperty.
    • DELETE: SpaceWatchers, ContentVersion.
  • Skyvia does not support Synchronization for Confluence since none of the objects has the UpdatedDate field.
  • Skyvia supports Replication with Incremental Updates only for the Content object. However, please note that since this object doesn’t have the UpdatedDate field, updated records and any changes made to them will not be applied when replicating with Incremental Updates. Only new records will be replicated.

  • When performing the UPDATE operation against the Content object, you need to provide the value for the Version_Number field. This value must be equal to the previous value of this field plus one.

  • When importing data to the Content object, the new content should be assigned to one of the Body*Value fields. There are several types of body: view, editor, wiki, plain, etc. For each type, there is the value and the representation field. You need to map both of the corresponding fields. For example, you can import the content into the Body_Editor_Value field and map the Body_Editor_Representation field to the constant string “Editor”.

  • When importing data to the ContentLabels and SpaceLabel objects, the Id value is not returned.
