Quick start

By mid-October 2023, an improved version of Security & Encryption for Confluence Cloud will be released. Users will enjoy enhanced security.

In this guide, we will get you quickly creating secrets that you can share securely with Security and Encryption for Confluence Cloud.

In this example, we will build a page containing passwords to crucial accounts. The image below shows the end result:

Secrets now benefit from the enhanced security provided by zero-knowledge architecture. Learn more in What is a legacy secret?

If your secrets were created before the update, you will need to upgrade your legacy secrets to the new structure. Follow our guide to upgrade your secrets.

Follow these steps:

  1. First, ensure that you have add/delete restrictions granted in space permissions to create and update secrets. Contact your administrator to grant you access if you do not.

  2. Create a table with two columns by clicking on the table icon on the menu. On the header of the right column, type “Account”, and on the left, type “Password”. Then, create rows with the name “Email”, “Website”, and “Accounting”.

  3. In the first row of the Password column, insert a Secret macro.

  4. In the Details tab, Insert your password details into the pop-up form and click Insert.

  5. In the Access tab, enter the name of the individual users or user groups you’ll be sharing the secret with. Then, click Insert.

  6. In the example, I’ve added a user in the Users field. This user has only read-only access and cannot edit or add/remove access to the secret.

  7. I’ve also added the “confluence-users” group in the Group Owners field. The members of this group are able to edit or add/remove access to the secret.
    The User Owners or Group Owners fields must have a value, if not, the Secret macro configuration cannot be saved. 
    To learn more about the distinction between secret owners and non-owners read Creating and editing secrets.

  8. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with the other rows. Once done, publish your page.

Congratulations! You have successfully created multiple secrets for each row in the table.
