    Glossary Space Blueprint

    Highlight and Select Definition to see it

    Free Open Source Software

    The glossary space blueprint sets up a space to contain glossary terms. A glossary space can be linked to one or more regular spaces by sharing a common space category.

    Highlighting a term, select the 'show definition' icon, and the definition will pop up.

    The source code for the plugin is publicly hosted on Bitbucket at https://bitbucket.org/keysight/keysight-plugins-for-atlassian-products

    More details

    Keysight has decided to publicly release the plugins developed in-house to support our instance of Confluence. The source code for the plugins is available under an Apache 2 license from https://bitbucket.org/keysight/keysight-plugins-for-atlassian-products.

    The glossary plugin is a very simple implementation. First, a glossary space is created from the Glossary Space Blueprint. What makes it a glossary are the top level pages A, B, C... and the space category "glossary". The glossary can then be linked to a space by having the two share a common space category (i.e. add the same space category to both the glossary space and linked space.) A use can then highlight a word or phrase in the space and select the definition icon. That will pop up the contents of the page with that title in the Glossary space, give the user the option to create the definition if it does not exist and they have permissions to do so or finally request that the admins of the Glossary space define the term.

    The bug with the space creation is what preventing us from using it.

    Attention: This addon caused our Confluence (6.15.1) to prevent future Space creation because of an Error in the Blueprints dialogue / SQL Table. This is caused because after uninstallation of this App the entry "AO_54C900_SPACE_BLUEPRINT_AO" remains in the Confluence Blueprints Table.

    The free plugin brings everything with what a glossary needs. We like to use it.

    Once setup this add-ons works like a charm. Similar to the previous reviewer an optional highlight mechanism would be very much appriciated. Some ideas for improvement - a way to link singular/plural of a word - If a user requests a new word for inclusion, he/she should be able to provide a definition of this word

    After a major bug disappeared this plugin seems to be a nice solution to include a glossary. It would be great to have a mechanism to highlight a glossary term (like Macro or Link Detection)
