Deciding on Authorization Methods for Azure DevOps with Git for Confluence

Git for Confluence streamlines accessing and displaying private Azure DevOps repositories within Confluence, offering two authorization methods tailored to different needs: Individual Access (OAuth 2.0) and Managed Access (Personal Access Token).

  • Individual Access (OAuth 2.0): Users log in with their Azure DevOps accounts via OAuth 2.0 to share private Azure DevOps repositories on Confluence pages. This user-centric approach facilitates easy access and sharing.
  • Managed Access (Personal Access Token): A more centralized method where admins set up a global personal access token for Confluence to fetch content from Azure DevOps repositories. It ensures controlled access and stable sharing, with shared Azure DevOps content remaining accessible in Confluence as long as the token has access, unaffected by individual user account changes. Admins also manage which Confluence user groups can share private Azure DevOps resources, aligning with internal security policies.
