Getting Started

Use these steps to get started with Nightfall for Confluence.
To install the Nightfall App for Confluence, please follow the steps outlined below.
Nightfall installs into your Confluence account as an Atlassian Connect app. So, the installation is completed in the Confluence UI.

Step 1. Install Confluence Connect App from Atlassian Marketplace

Navigate to the DLP for Confluence - Nightfall AI listing in the Atlassian Marketplace and select "Get app." You can review the rights that the App will have, and can then select "Get it now".
Choose the Atlassian site where you would like to install your app and follow the instructions to finish the installation.
Once you have completed these steps, log in to your Nightfall dashboard and select the Confluence tab in the left sidebar to validate that the app is successfully installed.
Once you have installed the app successfully, please provide your Nightfall Account Manager with the base URL for your Atlassian instance. There are some backend configuration steps that are required upon installation, in order for the integration to function properly.

Step 2. Create Detection Rule

First, we will configure our Detection Rule that defines the types of sensitive data we are looking for in Confluence. The detection rule is the Nightfall aggregation of detectors and confidence levels/findings that will dictate whether a violation or finding is recorded.
To learn more about Detection Rules and how to set them up, please refer to this article .
In the left sidebar, click "Detection Rules".
We strongly recommend configuring a simple detection rule to start as follows:
Minimum Confidence
Minimum Count
Credit Card Number
US Social Security Number
Now that our Detection Rule has been created, we will create our Confluence policy that will use this Detection Rule.
