One very important use-case of Orderly Database is Page Metadata. This means, the database entry does not only link to a Confluence page, but actually it belongs to a Confluence page.

For example:

  • You have Confluence pages that contain information about each projects, and you have a Projects database that contains structured (meta)data about the projects.

In such cases you can turn your database into a Page Database, so that each entry is represented by a Confluence page and contains metadata for that Confluence page.
