    DISQUS instead of Confluence's comments

    Open commenting to public

    Hide Confluence's comments and use DISQUS instead.

    User can authenticated using any service supported including Facebook, Google and Twitter.

    With an external commenting system you can allow anyone to leave a comment even with a modest 10-user Confluence license.

    More details

    If you're running a publicly visible Confluence instance, allowing visitors to comment/discuss your articles may be price prohibitive (especially if you're a small organization). Instead of allowing Confluence self-registration, use Confluence accounts for your content contributors only while enabling commenting via third-party service.

    External Comments Plugin for Confluence enables external commenting system on your Confluence pages.

    Currently, the plugin supports Disqus service only. Depending on interest, we may add support for other commenting systems in the future.

    External Comments is not available for Confluence Cloud but the same functionality can be obtained using our Domain Booster add-on (see the use case).

    Thank you very much for this plugin! It helped us to integrate the power of Disqus on our public spaces in Confluence to receive feedback from our visitors! This is very useful! Thanks!

    Thanks for the great plug-in. I know it's only a few months old, but I'd give it four starts if it (1) had support for https sites (I think this is my problem anyway) and (2) could be enabled for blogs only. Thanks again, and I look forward to your future releases. UPDATED--Thanks for quick follow-up comment (definitely deserves four stars). I've sent some detail on the SSL issue.

    Jim, thanks for the feedback.

    1) What kind of issue do you see on https sites? (feel free to drop us an email with more details)

    2) Nice idea. Will have it in mind for the next update.

    This plug-in helped us integrate Disqus much more quickly than we did during our testing conducted without the plug-in. The development team responded very quickly with a needed update. Thanks so much!

    This is a fantastic plug-in! One of our favorites at our company. It has completely revolutionized the way we can control and manage user comments, and the integration is flawless with Disqus! Thank you to Radomir for your excellent assistance. Wish you and your team well.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your host product and app licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your host product. The app tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian host product. For example, if you have a Confluence Server license for 25 users, you should purchase the 25-user tier for apps. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your host product license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    For server apps, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host product. Server apps are always free for community and open-source licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server apps, you can extend your app trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the app listing in UPM from your Atlassian host product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps for my legacy JIRA Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.
