Mirroring Bitbucket image to Confluence via Mark-down App


Hi everyone,

to mirror content and code edited in a repo in Bitbucket in Confluence, we use the app "Mark-down" from Bobswift for Confluence. We specifically use "Markdown from a URL". Thus, we provide a technical user and an access token here as well as the URL to the specific page in the Bitbucket: 

We do not manage to mirror images from Bitbucket to Confluence via this method, only text. 

Example of such an URL to a document edited in Bitbucket, containing an image we also wish to be shown in Confluence:

markdown app.png

Our problem: the text is mirrored correctly, the image isn't.

Hence, we moved the image to a different folder in Bitbucket, hoping it would be shown in Confluence when we provide the direct image URL in the app "Markdown from a URL under "URL to markdown file":

Yet, it didn't work, the picture wasn't shown in Confluence, either, despite having moved it to a seperate folder.

Then, we thought we might have to add "&accesstoken" at the end of the URL and provide it under "URL to markdown file". That didn't help, either. 

Could you help with a trick?

Would be highly appreciated!!

Hey Avinash, 

thank you very much for your reply!

In regards to your questions, please find the answers in chronological order: 

a) Syntax: 

Select the downloaded VSIX file.


b) The syntax used above is representative for the file. The most important info is that we try to include a mark-down with relative paths to the images. 

The image URL is not displayed in the browser since our Bitbucket is protected via VPN and not accessible directly via the Internet. Hence, we tried to add a private access token generated in Bitbucket, as addition to the the image URL, by adding this acccess token "&accesstoken" at the end of the image URL, as explained above:

c) We are unable to view the image in the browser when using this format to view the image:

d) and f) Done, doesn't work.

Image URL.pngNo edit-mode

e) Confluence. 7.4.5, Mark-down App: 3.6.0


The image is missing here when using the "Markdown from URL" app with the URL leading to the file:

Using the direct IMAGE URL in the Markdown App, instead of the URL leading to the file,

Image URL.png

I hope this helps to understand our problem.



I hope this helps understand our problem.
