conflr uses these environmental variables to access your Confluence.

  • CONFLUENCE_URL: The base URL of your Confluence. e.g. (On Atlassian Cloud, https://<your-domain>
  • CONFLUENCE_USERNAME: Your username (On Atlassian Cloud, your email address).
  • CONFLUENCE_PASSWORD: Your password (On Atlassian Cloud, your API token. For more details about API token, please read the official document).

There are several ways to set these environmental variables. The quickest way is to enter in the popups that are displayed when you run the addin (see Usages section below). The inputs are cached in the environmental variables listed above by default.

Another way is to set the variables in the .Renviron file (you can open the file with usethis::edit_r_environ()). For example, you can set the base URL in the file as the following.

Atlassian Confluence Markdown Support

If you want to use this function without interaction, specify interactive = FALSE. This skips any confirmations or previews.

Note that, if you want to run this periodically, you also need to set update = TRUE to allow conflr to overwrite the existing page.


conflr’s functionality is also available as a custom R Markdown format; You can specify conflr::confluence_document to output in the front matter of your R Markdown document.

For example, if you set the following front matter, pressing Knit button on RStudio (or running rmarkdown::render()) will publish the R Markdown document to Confluence.
