Document

Simply put, a Scroll document (a.k.a document) lives in a Confluence space, and is a container for your documentation page tree and all its versions.

A Scroll document always starts out with a working version and is represented in the form of a card in the Document Library.

Documentation Page Tree

A documentation page tree on the other hand refers to the scope of pages within a Confluence space that represent a set of related content that you want to version and manage together.

The Documentation page tree can either be -

  • a single page, or

  • a sub-set of the space page tree, or

  • the entire space page tree

When you create a new Scroll document the documentation page tree is added as the working version of the document.

Documentation Root Page

In Scroll Documents, the top-level page of your documentation is known as the root page. This may vary depending on the scope of your documentation in Confluence. E.g.

  • If your documentation consists of only a single page, then this page is considered as the root page.

  • If your documentation is organized in a page tree within a space, then the top-level page of the tree is considered as the root page.

  • If an entire space represents your documentation, then the space home page is considered as the root page.

In case you add any pages below the document root page in the future, Scroll Documents will consider them a part of the documentation, and will be subject to versioning.

Working Version

Think of the working version as the continuously progressing version of your documentation. You will use this version to prepare changes to your documentation and save a version once complete.
