News Supplier

Overview

Supplies information about news items (or blog posts) in Confluence.

Key names are case-sensitive. That is, you must supply a key of "id" rather than "ID".

You can also use any key from the Content Supplier using the 'news:' prefix.

For example, you can use 'news:id', instead of 'content:id', even though 'id' is not listed explicitly below.
