Note: Atlassian limits app descriptors to 200 autoconvert links. As a result we’ve had to selectively remove autoconvert in the Tabs+ Pro for Confluence app for all static web hosting apps such as Netlify, Heroku, Vercel etc. You can still copy-paste these links into the macro editor.
Creating, editing and ordering tabs
To add a new tab either click the + button in the top-right or Add New in the left-hand panel.
Select the desired app from the list of options or paste a public share link directly.
Once a valid link has been pasted additional config options will be available in the left-hand config panel.
Tabs can be reordered by drag-drop either in the tab bar or the left-hand config panel.
Changing the display options
Click the Display tab in the left-hand config panel.
Toggle and change various display options to see real-time preview.
How to export and import data
Click the Export tab in the left-hand config panel.
Toggle on the type of data you wish to export/import: tabs or display.
Copy-paste this data into any other compatible app macro (Confluence or Jira).
Important note on data storage
We prefer to keep all data safely within your Confluence/Jira instance and as such don’t store any data on our servers. However Atlassian makes this difficult by giving developers a tiny 32kB storage container to work with which can be easily exceeded with the notes or whiteboard feature in our apps.
Below is a brief of how we workaround that limit to keep your data secure:
Confluence: data is stored in a content attachment JSON.
This is unconventional but works quite well for storing large datasets (eg tab notes or whiteboards).
You can find the JSON filename associated with the macro in the macro editor Export tab.
You’ll see the JSON file alongside your regular Confluence attachments.
DO NOT DELETE the JSON file named similar to appsplus-tabs-data-nIDq0Ml4ee.json
Should you accidentally delete the file, contact your Confluence admin to restore it.
Jira: data is stored across multiple issue content properties.
We could have taken the same Confluence approach but since attachments are displayed inline on issues this would have been an ugly solution. Thus the default whiteboard app is not available in Jira.
Licensing for apps and bundles
All of the bundles and apps listed below are compatible with each other.
eg if you have both Figma+ and Airtable+ installed and licensed then you’re able to use the apps interchangeably. Figma macro will be accessible within the Airtable macro, and vice versa.
When you install and license a bundle, all included apps will be accessible across all compatible apps.
If in the future you happen to be double-paying for licenses of the same app (eg you installed Figma+ and then later installed the Design Bundle+) you can simply “unsubscribe” Figma+ in the Universal Plugin Manager without uninstalling the app. This will allow users to continue to use Figma+ without double-paying for a license.
