Audit like a pro with our new Audit log

Can working with audit logs be fun? Atlassian’s revised audit log is sure to be fun to work with. With its clear, user-friendly interface, you can easily find your way around, adjust settings and filter events. But it’s not just about looks. It’s also about what you can do with it:

  • You’re in control: you decide which events are logged and how long you want to keep them.
  • Full transparency: filter events, expand to see further details, and export the audit log if necessary.
  • Free up your auditing schedule: events are clear and well categorized, so you don’t need to spend time browsing through piles of events.
  • Delegate some tasks: space admins can now access the audit log for a specific spaces to monitor what’s going on there DATA CENTER
  • Integrate with 3rd party tools: events are logged to your database and to a file in the local home directory. Use this file to integrate with SumoLogic, ELK, Amazon CloudWatch and Splunk DATA CENTER

Check it out yourself. Go to  > General Configuration > Audit log to experience the new era of auditing.


Bring some colour to your tables


You can now choose from 49 different table cell colours, including pure black and all the colours of the rainbow. The old colours are still available, so your existing tables will look just fine.


Widget connector gets a modern makeover


It’s now easier to keep all your work in one place, and bridge the gap between Confluence and other sites and services your team uses to get work done. You can now use the Widget Connector macro to share media, designs, work in progress, or the latest news from:

  • Facebook
  • Figma
  • LinkedIn
  • Microsoft Stream
  • Prezi
  • Spotify

The Widget Connector also improved how content is displayed from:

  • Google Calendar
  • Google Maps
  • Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides
  • Twitter (now displays Profiles, Lists, and Moments)


Single sign-on with OpenID Connect IdPs


Atlassian has recently added SAML single sign-on support for all its data center products. Now they have added the option to authenticate to Identity Providers (IdPs) that use the OpenID Connect protocol.

Go to > Allgemeine Konfiguration > SSO 2.0.
