There’s been a lot of great progress on the Forge platform recently, with the new runtime, complex storage queries, improved monitoring, and more. New Jira features are also frequently added to Forge.
However, we have noticed that the development of Confluence specific features has slowed down in the past few months. I went through the Forge changelog and the last new Confluence feature I could find was released eight months ago in December 2022. The only Confluence feature I could find on the Forge roadmap is “rich body macros.”
We have a lot of improvements and features in our backlog that our customers are asking for and that we would be happy to build, but we are blocked by a number of open issues, for example:
- Support for content properties in CQL This feature has been “in progress” for 17 months without publicly visible activity or updates.
- Custom UI support for macro configuration This is the second most upvoted Confluence issue and has been in the “gathering interest” phase for 18 months.
- Macro icons This issue has been in the “short term backlog” for 10 months.
- Delete events for content and spaces A similar issue for Jira is currently in progress, but I couldn’t find any announcement for Confluence (only this related issue).
Is there anything Atlassian can share about their plans for Forge & Confluence? We would very much appreciate any update that helps us with our own roadmap planning.
