Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.


Some text and background combinations don’t have enough contrast. They don’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (contrast - minimum). Atlassian is working on these.

Some links are empty, making it difficult to understand the function or purpose of the link. They don’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 (link purpose - in context).

Some form controls do not have a label. They don’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterions 1.1.1 (Non-text Content), 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships), 2.4.6 (Headings and Labels), and 3.3.2 (Labels or Instructions).

Third-party tools

We don't have a suitable alternative and, as we don't control the platform, are unable to make the changes required to improve it. Please let us know if you would like an accessible version of any of our wiki pages and we will send one through to you.
