Once the Confluence space is enabled for publishing to Salesforce Knowledge, each page will display ‘Publish to Salesforce’ option in the header, as well as, the menu, as shown below.
The steps to publishing one (Free-form) or more (Hierarchical) pages to Salesforce involve:
- Selecting/Confirming the Categories to assign to the Article in Salesforce
- Selecting Record Type, Channel(s), etc.
and whether to publish the page in ‘Draft’ mode
If the page being published has references (links) to other pages in Confluence, these references are flagged. In such scenarios, the link to the corresponding page in Confluence is published. Alternatively, you can choose to publish all of those pages to Salesforce before continuing.
If you choose to publish the page in Draft mode, you may review the published Article in Salesforce via the link provided in the confirmation window, as well as, make the Articles online. It is also possible to review the draft page in Salesforce prior to making it available to online communities.
