Confluence Compatibility

The following tables describe the Confluence Server versions supported by individual Lockpoint releases. If you are using Confluence Data Center or Confluence Clustered, please see the Confluence Data Center compatibility section below for important details.

1 Confluence 5.1 through 5.1.4 are supported directly. In Confluence 5.1.5, a Confluence bug (CONF-30346CONF-30556) severely impacts the functioning of the Attachments macro, as well as the ability to comment or use Lockpoint operations on any page containing that macro. For Lockpoint to work correctly with 5.1.5, you must upgrade the Attachments Plugin as described in the "Workaround solution" section of CONF-30346. However, using the upgraded Attachments Plugin requires a recent version of Lockpoint. Arsenale supports Lockpoint 1.4.5+ with Confluence 5.1.5 so long as the CONF-30346 workaround is applied.

For Lockpoint versions 1.0 - 1.3.x:

Confluence Version


< 3.13.1 - 3.33.4 -
Lockpoint 1.3.1 - 1.3.4(error)(error)(tick)(tick)(tick)(tick)(tick)(error)

Lockpoint 1.2.0 - 1.2.2(error)(tick)(tick)(tick)(error)(error)(error)(error)
Lockpoint 1.0 - 1.1(error)(tick)(tick)(error)(error)(error)(error)(error)

Note: a security notice applies to all versions of Lockpoint prior to 1.4.3. We strongly recommend upgrading to 1.4.3 (or higher) if possible. Please see Lockpoint Security Notice 20130403 for more details.

Confluence Server versus Confluence Cloud

Lockpoint is compatible with Confluence Server only, which is the downloaded and self-hosted version of Confluence.

Confluence Cloud (formerly known as Confluence OnDemand) supports only a limited set of plugin points and it is not compatible with Lockpoint.

If you want to use Lockpoint but you do not want to host Confluence yourself, you may wish to consider using a third-party hosting service (such as Seibert Media's SWIFT) that hosts Confluence but still permits you to install any add-on of your choice (including Lockpoint).

Arsenale Lockpoint cannot be used in Confluence Cloud (formerly known as Confluence OnDemand).

Confluence Data Center and Legacy Confluence Clustered

Lockpoint supports clustered operation from Confluence 3.1 and above:

For Confluence 5.6 and above, Lockpoint supports Confluence Data Center clustering (only), using Lockpoint 1.6 and higher.

For Confluence 5.5 , Confluence itself does not support clustered operation.

For Confluence 3.1 through 5.4 , Lockpoint supports legacy Confluence Clustered using the relevant versions of Lockpoint 1.1 through Lockpoint 1.5.5 (as shown in the compatibility version matrix above). Lockpoint 1.6+ does not support legacy Confluence Clustered under any circumstances, even if those versions of Confluence are otherwise listed as being compatible with the same version of Lockpoint above.


Confluence Add-On Compatibility

Arsenale Lockpoint has been tested and is known to be compatible with the following other Confluence add-ons:

Add-OnLockpoint 1.0+Notes
Balsamiq Mockups(tick)Integrated with inline locking and unlocking.
Drag and Drop Plugin(tick)Uploads of attachments locked by others are denied with an appropriate error message.
Gliffy(tick)Fully integrated with inline locking and unlocking.
Office Connector(tick)Fully integrated with inline locking and unlocking.
WebDAV(tick)Fully integrated with automatic locking and unlocking.


The above matrix represents only those individual add-ons that may require UI changes to work properly with lock and unlock workflow. Most other Confluence add-ons do not require any special changes for compatibility, so if an add-on is not listed above, it will probably work with Lockpoint.

Web Browser Compatibility

Some features (such as inline locking of Balsamiq Mockup attachments and inline status for the {viewfile} macro) require client-side scripting to function correctly, and Lockpoint's general browser support is documented below.

The enhanced inline locking of Microsoft Project and Microsoft Visio documents is also only supported on certain browsers, and since support for Project/Visio locking depends heavily on both browser and operating system, Arsenale may not be able to support Microsoft Project across all possible combinations of software.

In particular, Microsoft Project 2010 in conjunction with Windows 7 is known to cause problems with documents being opened as read-only and with documents that fail to lock automatically. In such cases, the documents can be locked manually and downloaded using the standard Confluence download feature.

The base functionality of the Edit in Office feature is provided by the underlying Atlassian Office Connector, so Lockpoint's support for specific browsers and Office applications is generally limited by the support matrix of the Atlassian Office Connector. The following table describes our known browser and feature compatibility list:


OSBrowserVersionGeneral SupportEdit in OfficeInline MS Visio LockingInline MS Project Locking
WindowsInternet Explorer8.x - 11.x(tick)(tick)(tick)(tick)
 Internet Explorer11.x(tick)(tick) 1(tick)(tick)
 ChromeAll(tick)(tick) 2(error)(error)

1 Internet Explorer 11.x support in Lockpoint requires Confluence 5.4.3 or higher. Earlier versions of Confluence do not support IE11.

2 Chrome users can use Edit in Office with the IE Tab for Chrome or the IE Tab Seamless extensions, by simply requesting to display the appropriate Confluence page in IE mode and then activating the Edit in Office feature.

WebDAV Client Compatibility

Lockpoint includes file locking support for WebDAV clients. Most WebDAV clients should work correctly. 

If you experience problems with a particular WebDAV client, please contact Arsenale Support so we can work with you to help resolve the issue.

The following WebDAV clients have been explicitly tested to work correctly with file locking in Lockpoint:

PlatformApplicationLockpoint 1.5.5+Lockpoint 1.1 - 1.5.4Lockpoint 1.0
WindowsMicrosoft Word 2003(tick)(tick)(tick)
 Microsoft Excel 2003(tick)(tick)(tick)
 Microsoft Project 2003(tick)(tick)(error)
 Microsoft Visio 2003(tick)(tick)(error)
 Microsoft Word 2010(tick)(tick)(tick)
 Microsoft Excel 2010(tick)(tick)(tick)

 Microsoft PowerPoint 2013(tick)(error)(error)
MacMicrosoft Word:mac 2008(tick)(tick)(tick)
 Microsoft Excel:mac 20081(tick)(tick)(tick)

1 Lockpoint itself functions properly with Excel:mac 2008, although underlying issues with the Office Connector can cause Excel to be unable to re-save existing files to Confluence. This problem exists even without Lockpoint installed, so we recommend using caution when using Excel:mac 2008 in a Confluence environment.
