Redirect for Confluence

 

 

 



Overview

In Confluence, you can define only one global homepage. The Redirect app (formerly “Homepage Redirect for Confluence”) takes it one step further: Administrators can assign unique homepages to several individual user groups. As soon as users access Confluence, they are redirected to a homepage that was set up for their user group.

The destination of the redirect can be a page, a blog post or a space homepage. If the defined page has a pre-defined design, the page will be displayed exactly in that way. This makes the app most valuable to all customers with tailored Confluence colour schemes and/or third-party skins and themes.

The Redirect app was built for Server/DC and works well in combination with our Enterprise Theme app.



Use Case


Typical applications:

  • Holdings with a unique corporate design per subsidiary

  • Companies with different homepages per business unit or departments



  • Businesses with the need for separate homepages for clients and external partners
