Context

  • We have a add-on for Confluence with a collection of macros
  • We design a lot of blueprints (300+) in a number of doctype add-ons (apps, 15+) based on those macros
  • When we deploy a new version of one of our add-ons, we need to deploy it to different environments (DEV plus 3+)

automation required


Use Case 1: Deploy from a Maven App Project

Artifact currently created and located in the target folder.

Deploy to Local Confluence (DEV)
mvn apptools:deploy -PLOCAL
Deploy to Test Enviroment (TEST)
mvn apptools:deploy -PTEST
Deploy to Production (PROD)
mvn apptools:deploy -PPROD

Use Case 2: Deploy a Set of Add-ons

Set of apps is defined with the POM.


Deploy latest SNAPSHOTs on Artifact Server to Test Environment
mvn apptools:deploy -PTEST -DuseLatest=SNAPSHOT
