Need to share your database content in other formats, such as PDF, Microsoft Word or HTML? Structured content in your Orderly macros is automatically visible when exporting pages via the Confluence built-in exporters.

Additionally, marketplace apps provide other, more advanced options to export Orderly macros. In this article you will learn how to set up advanced exporting functionalities using Scroll Exporters and Scroll Viewport.

How to Export Databases in a Landscape View

Over time with more fields and entries added, databases can become too wide to fit on a printed page. With Scroll Exporters you have the ability change the page orientation to a landscape view. To do so, follow this Scroll Exporter guide to change the page orientation.

How to Publish Databases to Your Help Center

Orderly Databases integrates with Scroll Viewport for Confluence Cloud to enable you to publish Orderly Database and Orderly Entry macros to your help center.

For example, you might have some how-to articles in your help center that always include a fixed set of prerequisites. Using Orderly, all prerequisites can be managed in a single database which can then be included in your help center articles using the Orderly Entry macro.

If you'd like to publish Orderly macros to your help center, you'll need to enable specific permission settings to make Orderly macros visible on your Scroll Viewport site.

Prerequisites

  • You have created a Scroll Viewport site with pages that include Orderly macros.
  • You have admin permissions for your database and the space it has been created in.

  • Your Scroll Viewport site allows you to display content from any includes (learn more here). This prerequisite is only needed if you plan to include image field types from your database.

How to Set Up Viewing Permissions

For your Orderly macros to be visible on your Scroll Viewport site, both apps need to have viewing permissions for the space the database was created in as well as in the database permissions for the database itself.

To set up viewing permissions for a view-restricted database ('Everyone: Has no access'), you need to:

  1. Go to your database.
  2. Open the database permission settings in the 'more' menu.
  3. Use the search-field and select the two app users 'Orderly Databases for Confluence' and 'Scroll Viewport for Confluence'.
  4. Give both app users 'can view' permissions.
  5. Save your new permission settings.
