Looking for tester/feedback. Embedding existing attachments into a page


With the new fabric editor it is no longer possible to add existing attachments to a page.

Referencing files from a different space and inserting files to a page without the need of re-uploading is a core feature, and its lack prevents maintainable version management.

After 2 years of an open feature request CONFCLOUD-65344  we decided to create an add-on which restores this functionality and provides additional features like inserting attachments as inline download links, supporting different display types and the ability to create a hard copy attachments from a different space.

Starting next week we are moving to a closed beta test and are looking for testers who are eager to try out the macro and give some feedback.

The new add-on tightly integrates into the confluence editor by providing 2 macros.


Custom Macro editor:



Rendered Macro with different display types

  • Display Type: Choose between one of 3 different display types
    • Download link: Display an inline link which can be embedded into the page to download the attachment
    • Card display: The default confluence file upload preview
    • Media display: Show a smart preview depending on the file type. 
      • A video player
      • An audio player
      • Support for Word and Excel
      • Images




  • Features:
    • Reference an attachment of a different page. A referenced attachment automatically displays the current version of the files
    • Quick copy attachments from a different pages to the current page
    • Attachments already uploaded to a space can be displayed


  • Security:
    • Security by using only the absolute minimum necessary permissions.
    • No attachment and file data is saved on our system


Inserting via shortcuts or the macro gallery
