    This will really help us out.  Confluence is a platform our IT department is going with and there is pressure to drop Screen Steps Live and move / re-create in Confluence.  Ugh!

    @Michael - is Confluence inside or outside of your firewall? If inside, would the ScreenSteps server be able to access your Confluence server to publish content?

    @Trevor

    Confluence is hosted on our servers and all inside of our firewall.  

    Also, I think this can only help the situation, we want to work with you guys to build the necessary connection to our active directory user DB to start securing the system more.  We really can use it for more documentation, but need to have all our users with read access to build out the more data sensitive and business process documents.

    If we can help, just let us know. We need this option too.

    @Michael - Now that ScreenSteps is hosted all integrations with 3rd party services happen from the web server. So the question is whether or not ScreenSteps would be able to connect to the Confluence API on your servers?

    @Michael - with regards to active directory integration, we have an integration with OneLogin. OneLogin has an Active Directory connector. Would something like that work for you?

    @Pm, @Jamie, Peter - how about your Confluence installations? Would the Confluence API on your server be accessible by the ScreenSteps server?

    @Trevor - I need to find out if OneLogin would ever work.  We don't have a single sign-on type of solution in place today and I'm outside of the IT dept. and have no influence there.  In answer of your question:  So the question is whether or not ScreenSteps would be able to connect to the Confluence API on your servers? - I don't know how to answer that either!  I'll have to setup a meeting with the appropriate IT person and someone from Blue Mango.  Who should that be?

    @Michael - if someone in IT has any specific questions they can email support@screensteps.com and they will be routed to the appropriate person. I don't think a meeting is required at this time, however. The question to ask IT is, "Is the Confluence API accessible to a 3rd party web server?" 

    The reason I ask is that with products such as Confluence and MindTouch it is possible to install them on the internal network of a company. When this is done it may not be possible for our ScreenSteps server to access the Confluence or MindTouch API in order to create content. If the ScreenSteps server can't reach your Confluence installation then no integration is possible.

    Please us to the list of user sites that would love to be able to publish to Confluence again. We really miss that feature in Screensteps3/Clarify2 after moving from Screensteps 2 Workgroup.

    We are hosting our Confluence internally but would be happy to open up the required access for Screensteps to post to it.
