    Never lose your work again: Edit Lock blocks other users from overwriting a document that you are currently working on

    Never lose your work again: Edit Lock blocks other users from overwriting a document that you are currently working on

    Highly visible warning

    Collaboration clearer

    Users can still overrule

    Edit Lock displays a popup window in the Confluence editor, whenever somebody else is currently editing the same document. With Edit Lock you won't lose your work, if somebody else is working on the same page as you.

    The merging mechanism of Confluence can be very confusing to new users; they don't understand how the merging works. With Edit Lock, the process of collaboration gets easier.

    We believe people are smarter than programs. If a user thinks that the other editor just forget to save his document or he knows what he is doing, he can close the popup.

    More details

    Edit Lock shows users a popup window in the Confluence editor whenever somebody else is currently editing the same document. This way you don't loose your work, if somebody else is working on the same page as you.

    Users of Confluence 6.x, please note:

    If you turn off Synchrony (Confluence's Concurrent Editing Feature), you can use Edit Lock as usual. If Synchrony is on, however, using Edit Lock doesn't make much sense, so you can deactivate it.

    Please clarify if the "Edit Lock" can be configure to truly block/prevent simultaneous edits of a page. Confluence standard already has popups to warn you if someone else is editing. I want something that will mimic check out of a page. "Edit Lock prohibits synchronous editing of a page. It allows only one user to edit a page at a time, that no work gets lost. It is especially helpful for new users, that don't have much experience with the Confluence editor. (rev 0ef3abf) " This seems false. I can not find a configuration option that truly enforces this. A warning is not the same as "prohibiting".

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server add-on pricing work?

    Server products and add-ons 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 add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If add-on 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 tier?

    The add-on tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a Confluence Server license for 25 users, you should purchase the 25-user tier for add-ons. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

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

    For server add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

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

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server add-ons, you can extend your add-on 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 add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    How can I buy add-ons 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 add-on pricing is no longer available. You have two options for add-on purchasing:

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