Workflow Overview

This page gives an overview about the required steps to export your content from Confluence to the wanted export format.


Setting up a Development Environment

To export your Confluence content to DocBook you first have to install a Atlassian Plugin SDK.

For more information, see Setting Up a Development Environment.

Installing the Base Plugin

After you've installed the Plugin SDK you have to install the Scroll Base Plugin, which provides necessary information to Confluence.

Creating a Template

In the next step you have to create a template to proper define the output of your exports.

For more information, see Creating a template.

Creating Export Scheme

After you've finished your DocBook Template you can create an export scheme which can either be globally or space-wide. As well as the templates you can have multiple export schemes for different customers or use cases.

Preparing Content in Confluence

You don't have to do anything special in your Confluence System. Just create your content like you normally do. When starting an export, Scroll DocBook Exporter will automatically create an archive with selected DocBook resources.

Additionally, Scroll DocBook Exporter provides some special macros, for example overwriting page titles, or applying captions to tables or figures.

Export to DocBook

The export from Confluence to DocBook is just one click ahead.
