Aura enables Confluence Administrators to control which colors are available throughout Aura macros by introducing Color Palettes. Each Color Palette comes with a set of up to 18 different colors that for example will match the companys brands and corporate identity.
Administrators are able to create, edit, activate, deactivate, sort or delete Color Palettes. In addition you are able to allow users to use custom colors, which activates a color picker for all users.
