GitHub links for Confluence Data Center Guides

Connect GitHub links for Confluence with your organization

To Connect GitHub links for Confluence with the organization, navigate to the Global Configuration page.

  1. Select Manage Apps from the section Apps on the Confluence navigation menu.

  2. On the left sidebar, find our app GitHub links.

  3. Enter the token and press save

  4. Optionally, you can configure the date format used in the macros.

Make sure that when you create the personal access token, it has the permissions to your organizations you want integrate Confluence with.

Disconnect GitHub links for Confluence with your organization

If you need to reconnect or disconnect the GitHub links for the Confluence App with your organization, please:

  1. Disconnect the App by clicking on the button Delete.

Check Permissions

To avoid issues with the connection to the required organization, you have to check permissions on the GitHub platform side:

  1. You can do this by going to User profile → Settings.

  2. Navigate to the Integrations section and click on Applications.

  3. On the tab Authorized OAuth Apps, select our application Links for Atlassian Confluence.

  4. Ensure a green tick (V) is in front of your organization. See the picture below.

  5. To grant permissions click on the Grant button.

If you forgot to grant permissions to required organization or you don’t have permissions to allow it, you need to request the access from your org owner.

Usage with private repositories

To use the private repositories, you need to ensure that the personal access token can access your private repositories. We do not clone or access source code. We use GitHub APIs to get additional information from the links inserted in Confluence.

If you want to use this App only with public repositories - you do NOT need any additional configuration. It works out of the box.

When you allow GitHub App to access your data, please make sure that you grant permissions to your organization as well, not only your personal repositories.
