Confluence FAQ:

If I update a Hugo note after it has been saved, will my Confluence page update?

  • Hugo will not edit any pages in your Confluence account after they have been sent.
  • Therefore pages that are created by Hugo will remain unchanged even if you edit the note afterwards.

If I delete a Hugo note, what happens to the Confluence page?

  • Hugo will not delete any data from your Confluence account, it will only send pages to Confluence from your Hugo notes.
  • Therefore pages will remain in Confluence even if the note that created them has been deleted.
