You can install the Team Files app from the Atlassian Marketplace, then open it by clicking the Team Files link on Confluence’s sidebar, and it's ready to use.
Connect your first folder
You don't need to create an account to use the app. The only thing required is to connect at least one folder to the Confluence Space so that you can start collaborating with your team and build your single source of truth.
If there's already a folder connected when you first open the app, that means someone in your team already shared a folder, and you can use that one or add more, following the same steps.
Step 1: Click the "Connect folder" button
Step 2: Select the storage place where the folder you want to connect is and authenticate
You can connect a folder stored in SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, Egnyte, or an FTP Server.
You can connect more places later from the file manager. Learn more
The options to connect clouds may be different depending on the app you installed. Example: Dropbox or Google Drive dedicated apps.

Step 4: Select the folder you want to connect
Use the checkbox to select the folder you want to connect.
We recommend connecting a folder where you and your team already store your documents, but you can also start with a new one by clicking the "New folder" button.
Tip: You can select multiple folders.
Step 5: Select permissions (optional)
Click the "Permissions" tab. By default, any folder you connect will be visible and editable by your team. If you want to limit access or block the edit feature, click the dropdown to change the permissions.
