  • Why am I getting so many emails from Confluence?

You need to check your user settings and change your notification settings for page watches. Go to your username drop-down at the top right part of the screen and select "Watches" ( https://wiki.earthdata.nasa.gov/users/viewnotifications.action ). You will see a list of the various pages that you are currently set up to "watch". You can turn off watching the page by clicking on the envelope icon on the right-hand side of the screen.

Also check your email settings by going to  https://wiki.earthdata.nasa.gov/users/viewmyemailsettings.action  and making sure that the various checkboxes are UNCHECKED if you don't wish to receive so many emails.

  • Why am I receiving an error in the Team Calendar area on the Dashboard/Space page?

Confluence has an administrative setting that refers to a configuration of the "Base URL". The configuration of the Base URL for the Earthdata Wiki is for "https://wiki.earthdata.nasa.gov". If you try to type in the shortcut into the browser without the "https://" in the URL (for example, only typing in "wiki.earthdata.nasa.gov" into the browser), it will not default to the Base URL and will cause an error with the team calendar plug-in.

The simple fix is to access the site using the Base URL. For more information on this, you can also access the topic on the Confluence Knowledge Base (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Team+Calendars+Shows+Nondescript+Error+Box+or+%27No+Transport%27+Error).

  • Why is the URL of my page the pageID and a bunch of numbers instead of the title of the page?

Don't use special characters in your title. For example, the link for the 'Add and edit a page' page is: https://wiki.earthdata.nasa.gov/display/UG/Add+and+edit+a+page, if it had an ampersand instead of 'and', the URL will be rendered like this: https://wiki.earthdata.nasa.gov/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=2228303. They will both link to the same page, but the first link is much easier for users to read and remember!
