Joining the Community

Whether you are running Sakai at a small scale or large scale, it is important to become an active part of the community. Community engagement expands your portfolio of best practices, it provides a forum for affecting change, and the Sakai community and product both benefit from a broad base of input. This section details a few community resources that are available and may be of help to you in supporting your Sakai installation.

Confluence is the wiki used to document the Sakai product itself as well as the business processes related to the larger community. You can view materials without an account, but if you want to ccomment on , edit, or create your own new content, then you need an account. You can request an account by emailing

JIRA is the bug, requirements, and task tracking system used to manage the efforts of the Sakai community. You can browse JIRA without an account, but if you want to report new issues or comment on existing issues you'll need to create an account.

Key work groups and discussion groups


Apereo Conferences

The Apereo conferences are another good source of up-to-the-minute information about current versions of sakai, upcoming releases, and are a great way to build a network of contacts that are dealing with many of the same support issues. For details about the next upcoming conference, visit

Presentations and podcasts from previous conferences are retained for the use of the community.

Documenting your installation

As you move forward in supporting and learning about Sakai, it is important to learn about other administrators and their experiences in supporting Sakai. One way to do this is by registering your installation with the Sakai community.
