You can now connect your Confluence groups and your RealtimeBoard Teams using your Team Access Keys. The teams and groups can be connected in any order you need, for instance, one team - to all the groups or vice versa.

Adding boards to Confluence pages
To be able to see the boards on the Confluence pages a Confluence user does not necessarily need to be registered with RealtimeBoard. If a Confluence user has access to the Confluence page, then they will be able to see the board.
To be able to add a board to a page, a user needs to be a part of the Confluence group the page belongs to. When opening the board picker they only see the boards of those RealtimeBoard teams that were associated with the Confluence groups that the user is a member of.
To add a board when the plugin is installed and the integration is enabled click Insert more content > RealtimeBoard:
When editing a Confluence page
If your group is connected to several RealtimeBoard teams, first choose the team account, then click the board preview and press Insert:
The board picker on the Confluence page
Highlight the board to choose its size or remove it from the page:

After you add the board to your Confluence page, you can zoom the board, go to full-screen mode or open the board by clicking its name:

If the board owner restricts access to the board after it was added to Confluence, you'll see the following notice:
This board is not shared with your RealtimeBoard profile
