The Confluence-Admin is responsible for the management and administration of your Confluence System. They set the other user groups and permissions and can install plugins.


With CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) you can simply add styles to specific content. In the Scroll PDF Exporter, CSS is used to define the template and therefore define how the exported Confluence content will look like.

Export Scheme

Export Schemes allow you to define the settings used to export your Confluence content to the wanted output format.


You can reference to metadata by using Placeholders in your templates.


The REST API (Representational State Transfer) is a software architecture style for web applications. Using the REST API, you can for example automate your exports.

Scroll Versions

Scroll Versions is our content-management-tool for Atlassian Confluence. It allows you to manage multiple versions and variants in one space.


The Space-Admin is responsible for a specific space.

Static Pages

Static Pages are pages which contain content before or after the actual content from Confluence. Examples include title pages, table of contents, colophons, copyright notices. Static pages may contain dynamic content using so-called placeholders, which are replaced during export with data from Confluence.


A Template is written in CSS and defines the look of an exported page.
