Search for answers using Atlassian Intelligence

This Atlassian Intelligence feature is in beta. Read more about Atlassian Intelligence features.

Atlassian Intelligence is available and automatically activated for all products on Premium and Enterprise plans. Organization admins can manage Atlassian Intelligence preferences from Settings > Atlassian Intelligence in Atlassian Administration.

Asking a question of Atlassian Intelligence in Confluence advanced search

What kind of questions can Atlassian Intelligence answer?

Atlassian Intelligence generates answers solely based on what’s in your Confluence (and what you, specifically, have access to). This feature does not generate new content, but searches Confluence pages and blogs (while respecting restrictions) to find an answer to your question. Because of this, you will have the best results when your Confluence site is full of detailed, up-to-date content.

Subjective questions (like “What is the meaning of life?”) or questions on which there isn’t much information may not trigger responses.

Not sure what questions to ask?

Here are a few suggestions:

  • When is the next marketing team offsite?

  • What is the work from home policy?

  • What is Project Sunrise?

  • How do I submit expenses for reimbursement?
