After upgrade (3.2->3.5) SQL Plugin no longer renders HTML


Instead of renderring HTML, you just see HTML in the table cells.

Can this behaviour be changed?

1 answer

In newer versions of the SQL Plugin there is a parameter disableAntiXss which you need to set to true, otherwise the html output would be escaped. See documentation.


For security reasons, use of this parameter is restricted to authorized users. It can be enabled by configuring security using the Confluence Macro Security Plugin.

Hope this helps

Just to add another reference to Remo's answer: SQL Plugin 4.1.0 released

I ended up disabling the security "feature"
