Bring in Markdown content from an attachment or URL. Create Application Links to get content from your Atlassian tools, or easily configure profiles to get content from GitHub, GitLab, and more.

Easily link to other pages with WikiLinks

Link to Confluence pages and attachments in the current page/ space, or a different page/ space using the standard Markdown WikiLinks syntax and Confluence specific extensions.
