Request a Wiki Project (Confluence Space)

Confluence helps your teams to share and manage documents, images, and text with multiple teams. It is a wiki software with permission awareness to protect the information when needed.

In Confluence, content is organised into spaces. There are two types of spaces:

  • Global spaces are areas on your site into which you can group content items (pages, attachments, news, etc) based on any theme or topic of your choice. For example, you may want separate areas on your site for each team or project within your organisation. In Confluence, you can set up a different space for each team or project. You can build content for each of these spaces individually, decide who its users are, and even archive mail separately within each. There is no limit to the number of global spaces you can create within Confluence!
  • Personal spaces belong to particular users, and rather than being listed on the Dashboard (see below), are available from the People Directory. They can contain pages and news items, be searched and browsed. They can be kept private, or opened up so the whole world can view and edit them, just like global spaces. (Note: personal spaces are available in Confluence version 2.2 and later.)

Confluence treats each space as an independently managed wiki. What this means is that each space functions autonomously within your site.

Each space:

You can view all the global spaces within a site via the Dashboard. You also group global spaces together into 'Team Spaces' or 'My Spaces' to enable easy access to the content that is most relevant to you. See Customising the Dashboard.

A short description on the function of this Wiki/Space so we can highlight this information in our directory.

A classification of your users, so we can better organize and protect the appliance for usage and privacy, now and in the future. There are two types of user access:

  • Internal User Access defines a set of users who are default members of the OICR Network through the Active Directory Server. This includes all users with a email.
  • External User Access defines a set of users who are not already members of the OICR Network through the Active Directory Server. These users do not have a email address.

Provide a list of external users for account setup.
The information we need is (name, email and phone number).
Provide one account per line, separating the information by the comma.
For example, Dr. John Smith,, 416-999-9999
