Viewing Parature tickets in Confluence

The Parature for Confluence add-on creates a new space in Confluence called 'Parature'. Each Parature ticket will be represented by a page in the Parature space. To view the ticket details, simply visit the relevant page as you would any other Confluence page.

The Home page in the Parature space includes a search box that will look for pages within the Parature space only. Use that search box to find particular ticket details, customer details, or action history details.

Changing the Parature Import schedule

By default, Parature for Confluence will automatically check for changes to tickets in Parature every minute. New tickets will be imported into Confluence, and updated tickets will be updated in Confluence. You can change how frequently the check is performed by editing the relevant job schedule, as follows:

  1. Go to the Confluence Admin page
  2. Click the Scheduled Jobs menu item in the 'ADMINISTRATION' section.
  3. Find the Parature Import item, and click Edit.
    You'll need to know a little bit about cron expressions. The default expression is "0 * * * * ?", which makes the import job run every minute.
