TermSynonymsMeaning
Tenant (Microsoft 365)-Refers mostly to a SharePoint Online instance or sometimes the Azure AD that is associated with it, at least in this documentation. Tenants are often referred to by an ID like “170dd63a-3297-6006-8060-493a8304d6fc”. They can also be referred to by a host name like “contoso.onmicrosoft.com”, but that might not always be supported depending on the client used.
Tenant (Atlassian Cloud)-For details on Atlassian’s tenant concept refer to Atlassian Cloud architecture and operational practices. Throughout this documentation the tenant will refer to a specific Confluence instance (which is technically incorrect, but corresponds to the use of “tenant” to refer to SharePoint).
Site (SharePoint)Site Collection, SubsiteUsually refers to a site collection in SharePoint. It can also refer to a subsite in SharePoint, but those are not so widely used anymore in SharePoint Online. When working with sites they are usually referred to by their URL like “https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename".
Site (Confluence)-In this documentation, a “site” refers to a Confluence instance. In a broader sense a site can contain multiple other products as well, like Jira. The Confluence site in WikiTraccs is referred by URL to Confluence (like “https://wiki.contoso.com” or “https://contoso.atlassian.net/wiki" ). This might change in the future when WikiTraccs handles more products and grows its Confluence cloud coverage.
