Handbook Contributions

Got an itch because our documentation is lacking? Fantastic, please help make it better.

Please guide your contributions by intent and the desired outcome versus detailing a process that will not happen. That means keeping things simple and letting the best interest of Axelerant be the how.

Make a DRAFT

To make changes to guidelines in https://axelerant.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/AH or https://axelerant.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/OA, create a copy target page into https://axelerant.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/AH/pages/3034480778, excluding child pages.

Note: Check the revisions page to ensure we’re not making a second draft: one draft, one live.

Use More actions to Copy a Confluence page.
Locate the page in the DRAFTS section of the Axelerant Handbook.
Do NOT include child pages.

Rename the page with a DRAFT suffix in the page title, like Benefits DRAFT, and click Publish.

Note: Do not make your content edits yet because your first save reflects the live page, which makes future change comparisons much more manageable.

Append DRAFT to the page title and Publish to save the page.

Alternatively, edit the page in Google Docs and create a DRAFT when ready for review.

DRAFT Edit Notifications


By default, DRAFTs mean open for feedback. Yet, there are times when the draft is rapidly evolving, and comments should be held off. As such, prepend the page title with IGNORE.

Demonstrating IGNORE

Request a DRAFT Review

When the DRAFT page is good enough, submit to https://axelerant.atlassian.net/servicedesk/customer/portal/9/group/30 review and publish request per https://axelerant.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/OA/pages/3966468097.

Publishing a DRAFT

There are two types of publishing; new page or content replacement.

  1. For an entirely new page, publishing the draft is as easy as removing DRAFT from the page title, saving the page via Publish, and then moving the page to the appropriate location.

  2. For replacing existing page content, like https://axelerant.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/OA/pages/1447493744, replace the live page content with that of the approved DRAFT page. Then check and fix any quirks before saving the page via Publish. Afterward, Delete the DRAFT page.

Page No Longer Fits - Archiving or Deleting Content

  • When live content is no longer valuable to Axelerant, prepend the title with zzz and Archive.

  • When a draft page is no longer valuable to Axelerant, Delete it.
