Azure で Confluence Data Center の使用を開始する


Confluence Data Center は Microsfot Azure 環境に最適です。Microsoft Azure で Confluence Data Center をデプロイできる参照用テンプレートを提供します。ユーザーは Azure のベスト プラクティスに応じてそのテンプレートを設定できます。Azure で Confluence Data Center を稼働するのに必要なものをすべて取得する最も早い方法です。 

独自のハードウェアで Confluence Dta Center インストールを行う場合と同じ用に、ユーザー管理、中央ログ作成ストレージ、バックアップ戦略および監視を設定することを強くお勧めします。


テンプレートを使用して Confluence Data Center をデプロイする際のアーキテクチャの概要は次のとおりです。


  • スケール セット内で、Confluence を実行する、クラスター ノードとしての 1 つ以上の Azure 標準 Linux VM インスタンス
  • Azure SQL Server or PostgreSQL database
  • a storage account for the shared home directory which contains attachments and other files accessible to all Confluence nodes (local redundant storage)
  • an application gateway (multiple instances for high availability) 
  • a small Azure Linux VM to use as a bastion host (to access cluster nodes via SSH). 

The Azure SQL database is private and only accessible via a database service endpoint from the Confluence application nodes.

The application gateway acts as load balancer for your scale set of Confluence nodes and web application firewall.

We use a storage account for Confluence's shared home directory. It's mounted on each Confluence node, and treated as any other file store would be.

Synchrony will be managed by Confluence (on Confluence nodes). This means you don't need to provision or configure anything to be able to enable collaborative editing. 


Azure へのデプロイについて、次の制限事項をご確認ください。

  • Confluence がノードの検出に使用している Hazelcast の問題により、現在オートスケーリングをご利用いただけません。 
  • You can't use the deployment template to upgrade an existing Confluence deployment, or to provision new nodes running a different version to the rest of your cluster. 
  • ノードが手動で削除された場合、クラスターを削除しない限り再デプロイすることはできません。再デプロイを行っても、既存のデータベースと既存のホーム ディレクトリは削除されません。

Preparing for your deployment

Before you begin, you should use the Confluence Data Center load profiles to determine the size of your site.  This information will help you choose the right infrastructure size during deployment.

You should also decide which Azure region is best for your site. Some services, such as such as Application Insights and Azure SQL Analytics, may not be available in all regions. You can check this at

During the deployment you'll need:

  • Your database details, if you want to use an existing Azure database service. You'll need the database URL, port, username, and password. 
  • A Base64 encoded PFX certificate from a trusted Certificate Authority.
  • Details of your existing CNAME, if you don't want Azure to generate a random domain for you. 

Migrating an existing site to Azure

To migrate, you will need to set up a new Confluence Data Center site in Azure, and then import content from your old site. This approach ensures that your new site is created with optimum settings for Azure. 

Here's a high level overview of the steps:

  1. Back up your existing site, including your database and home directories. 
  2. Make a list of any Marketplace or other user-installed apps
  3. Perform a full site export, excluding attachments if you have a large site. You can also turn on read-only mode, to prevent users from making changes in your old site. 
  4. Deploy Confluence Data Center in Azure via the Azure Portal, or CLI, and test that Confluence is working as expected. 
  5. Import your site export file.  Make sure you know the administrator password for your existing site, as you'll be logged out during the import.
  6. Copy the contents of your /attachments directory to the equivalent directory in your shared home. 
  7. Install any apps.
  8. Test your site. 

At this point you can make the site available to your users, and tear down your old site. 

Tips for a successful migration:

  • Do a trial run first - export your existing site, and import it into Azure to iron out any issues. 
  • Because you're setting up your new site in parallel, your current Confluence site can remain accessible throughout the process.  If you're already running Confluence Data Center, use read-only mode to prevent people making changes after you've exported the site. 
  • Unless your existing site is small, exporting the site without attachments will keep the export file smaller. 

Azure マーケットプレイス経由で Confluence Data Center をデプロイする

Overriding the recommended hardware options

The confClusterSize parameter allows you to select the size of your deployment, and then use our recommendations for all resources to be created. 

If you choose not to set the confClusterSize parameter, you can choose to define your own values for things like dbTier, dbTierSize, clusterVmSize, LinuxOsType, and appGtwyTier

These parameters are all listed in the azuredeploy.json template file, with a description and allowed values.  You should also check out the Developing guide in the template repository to learn more about developing your own template.   

Securing your Azure deployment

We recommend deploying Confluence with SSL. Our template will prompt you for a certificate and password. 


  • HTTPS is terminated at the application gateway.
  • Your certificate should be from a trusted Certificate Authority. You should avoid self-signed certificates.


As a number of the resources we provision are managed by Azure, a number of options are available for  monitoring. For example:

  • A number of default alerts are available, such as cluster nodes going offline, CPU, or Db DTU exceeding 80%. These alerts will be emailed to the Confluence Administrator email address specified in the deployment.

  • Application Insights can be used to see the overall system health, and dig into particular areas of interest Application Insights in the Azure documentation. 

  • Azure SQL Analytics is available for more granular monitoring of your SQL Server database.   Monitor Azure SQL Database using Azure SQL Analytics in the Microsoft Azure documentation. 

Note that some of these resources are still in Preview, so may not be available in your location yet.
