The workflow can be imported to the Document Management dashboard or the page workflows templates dashboard in space tools.

Confluence Admins can restrict this feature to members of a specific user group – see: Configuration - Global.

You also may be required to validate your credentials depending on the configuration of the Confluence server.


You can optionally filter the workflows to a specific category – either via the dropdown category menu, or by choosing a category button shown at the bottom of each workflow.
