We are pleased to introduce ScrollDocuments 2.6.0 which is a feature and bug-fix release.
Scroll Page ID and Page Groups
Scroll Page ID is an an auto-generated random ID stored in a content property on the pages of a document and its versions. It is used by the Scroll Documents app to create associations between the same page across different versions of a document.
A Page Group is the set of Confluence pages from different page trees that represent the same content. For example, the pages "(v1) Getting Started", "(v2) Getting Started", and "(v3) Getting Started" belong together, because they are different versions of the page "Getting Started". All the pages in a Page Group share the same Scroll Page ID.
Benefits of Scroll Page IDs
At the moment Scroll Page IDs will enable the following -
- When navigating to a different version using the version picker in the Document Toolbox, you will be redirected to the corresponding page in the target version (if it exists) instead of the root page of the version.
Going forward, Scroll Page IDs will enable us to provide more sophisticated functionalities like -
- When navigating between versions of a document on a Scroll Viewport site, you will be redirected to the corresponding page in the target version (if it exists) instead of the root page of the version.
- Better comparison between document versions,
- Better publishing mechanism, and
- Page keys (similar to Scroll Versions)
