Create and edit databases

What is a Confluence database?

Databases in Confluence allow you to store structured data in a native format. Databases are similar to pages and other content types. They live in the content tree, can be searched and linked, and have permissions set at the space level.

A database organizes content into fields and entries:

  • Fields define the structure and are shown as columns. They describe the data type, like text, numbers, or dates.

  • Entries make up the content and are shown as rows. Each entry represents a set of values stored in the fields.

With databases, you can connect and organize structured data like customer IDs and unstructured data like meeting notes and images. This makes them a powerful way to bring all your content together in one place or even within your other Confluence pages and content.
