A connection in Instant Websites is how the generated static site reaches it's hosted destination.

There are four types of connections in Instant Websites;

  3. AWS and;
  4. File System

By default, when the app is first installed, only Download is enabled. 

In this section of the Instant Websites Global Configuration page, you can switch-on or off the other types of connections. 




Space Settings

In the Space Settings section you can Enable or Disable Instant Websites for all Confluence Spaces.

By default, the app is enabled for all spaces available in the Confluence instance. 

Along side each space is also the ability to Manage Sites. Clicking this link navigates you to the Instant Websites space level configuration.


When your Confluence instance has many spaces, a convenient search filter has been provided to find the space you need to configure.
