Wat te doen met SVG attachments? Edited

Gebruikers hebben de vraag gesteld of het mogelijk is om SVG image bestanden te kunnen gebruiken in Confluence. We hebben een SVG-Out add-on bekeken en daarop security tests losgelaten. We waren in staat om malafide scripts in de SVG te stoppen op een manier die de testserver onderuit haalde. We hebben 2 flinke lekken gevonden in de add-on en gebruik van SVG daarom niet toegestaan.

Ben benieuwd hoe andere grote bedrijven kijken naar attachments in het algemeen.

We maken gebruik van een Server licentie.

@Hans Leemans - if you're still using Confluence Server (or Data Center), there's a way to do this. Attach an SVG to a page, then...


While editing pages, you can embed various types of media to display in-line. This does not work in Confluence Cloud, however.

p.s. vote this suggestion up if you're interested in truly native support of SVG files inside Confluence (including Confluence Cloud):

If you are using no add-on Confluence pages will not show an SVG attachment, it will just show a grey square with the name of the attachment. Clicking on it will open the file and show the SVG. What we tried to do is to use an add-on to show the SVG attachments in the Confluence page. We looked at the SVG-out add-on to do that but it failed our security tests.

SVG is a very hackable format that can easily hide unwanted (HTML) coding. We were able to hack into Confluence just by adding malicious code into the SVG attachment. So, we do not want SVG to be used on our system as our security measurements will not allow this vulnerability risk.

@Hans Leemans - oh, I misunderstood your question!

Also, regarding my suggestion, that should work in a vanilla Confluence installation. I just tested in a test Confluence on my laptop and I'm able to embed.
