Confluence Retirement

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

CDI Wiki Improvement Project

Managing and periodically improving the CDI wiki is needed, especially given the migration from 3.0 to 4.0 (which entails reformatting all our content from JSPWiki into Confluence).  Things we want to address:

  • Help bring various working groups and sub-groups together
  • Make organization of pages clearer
  • Improving naming of pages and in-page titles
  • Develop appropriate tagging for pages, encourage use of this controlled list to help make things more findable
  • Encourage cross-posting where relevant
  • Get the word out about niftier features of our new wiki space (like dynamically populated lists!)
  • Develop wish list of features and a bug list for the folks that develop the Confluence system

The project does not displace the invitation for any and all CDI participants to freely edit any wiki page, anywhere, any time.  The project is merely a group focused on the bullets listed above.

Wish List/Questions

Some of these might already be possible, but we're just not aware of how they could be done.

  • enable use of a group (as in "{userlister:groups=sspt_corescience}") as a way to email to the group.
  • How to find group names? Email list names?
    • replacing Lotus email lists with those built here in Confluence
  • Integration of some kind of calendar.
    • Google Calendar would be nice. Would be good to be able to edit it from within Confluence (seems like you can only view it now; need to go directly to to make/change events) Looks like by the end of the year USGS's standard calendaring will bee google calendar - so this issue will resolve! – Unknown User (

Bug List/Feedback for Confluence Engineering Team

  • cprice - I'm not happy with the "look" of the page titles in the style sheet, as it puts the first word is always on its own line. I think a smaller font keeping the title together would be better.
