Target Structure Guidelines

Confluence Item Type    >    Relevant SharePoint Types

Space  >  Site

Personal Space > My Site Collection

Pages > Wiki Page Library

Blogs/News > Blog Posts

Blog Comments > Blog Comments

Bookmarks > Link Lists

Comments > Discussion List

Attachments > Document Library

  • The Confluence Spaces contain the User ACLs. All the child folders and items inherit security from it. If Confluence Spaces is not extracted as a root folder, the selected child folders of Confluence Spaces contain the User ACL and child items inherit security.
