Atlassian Cloud - how to add custom javascript or html for an embedded iframe

The Cloud version of Confluence appears to have very little support for HTML and Javascript compared to the server version. 

How can I add custom iframe code to a Cloud Confluence page to display an embedded report ?

Hello Jim and welcome to the Community!

Confluence Cloud and Confluence Server do have different amounts of flexibility when it comes to HTML and Javascript. Confluence Cloud does not offer native HTML and Javascript support without the addition of Add-On to Confluence.

A quick marketplace search shows there are 5 possible add-ons which enable HTML and Javascript.

Something else to be aware of are the functional difference between Confluence Cloud and server. You can find them here:

I hope this clarifies the capabilities of Confluence Cloud and give you options for a market place add-on.

Thanks. That does answer the question.

Unfortunately a basic feature ( adding HTML or Javascript to a page ) is not available in the base Cloud product. You have to purchase that as an additional feature which doesn't make the base product competitive with other platforms that include that functionality at no additional cost.

This seems to be a theme with the Cloud offerings.  Can't do basic server functionality...but don't worry, there's an add-on...but it costs money.  I'm trying to do something relatively simple (like, HTML 1.0 simple) like editing a link on a page so that it opens a new tab by default when clicked.  Sad that the SharePoint wiki language (which is admittedly awful) has the functionality but Confluence does not.  SMDH.

Without a doubt basic scripting or HTML should be in the base cloud product.

It is there in the server product and there is absolutely no reason it cannot be the same on cloud.  Reason about security/possibly breaking the site are inaccurate as it would only load for the users instance on confluence and is something that most other cloud offerings allow.  After all it is just basic HTML or Javascript and not something we should need to pay for an add-on for $ per user per month.
