One of the main reasons Confluence was chosen is because it enables easy and instant feedback between developers. It has an extensive set of features for managing information, particularly around collaboration and version or change management.

Our Confluence space contains both technical and business level information about our API standards. The level of access you have to that information will depend on your API Centre involvement. Anyone can view the published standards, but if you’re registered with the API Centre you’ll have additional rights.

Access levels to our Confluence space

  • Anyone can view the documentation and code specifications (YAML swagger) for our published standards in Confluence without requiring a login. These can be used as a basis to build your solution to the standard.
  • Our Community Contributors are given login access to our Confluence space which allows them to comment on ‘release candidate’ versions of standards.
  • Our registered Standards Users are also given login access and given the broadest rights. Standards Users can comment on new standards and new versions of existing standards during the design, development and ‘release candidate’ phases. Standards Users can also access documentation for all published and under development standards, technical working group material, API standards policies and procedures, proposal documents, issue logs and backlogs.
