Can I configure the height on the Confluence Page Gadget (Cloud version)?

Using Confluence Cloud, insert Confluence Page gadget, set up configuration and save.

Publish page and can only see a small section of the inserted page with scroll bars to the right. There is no option to set the height. I'd like to configure the height to simply replicate the page without scrolling.

Hi Michael,

It is not possible to adjust the height of the Confluence Page Gadget, only the width.

This has been requested in the past as a feature but unfortunately we do not have plans to implement this in the near future.

Thank you for your understanding!

Kind Regards,
Shannon

The decision to "Not Fix" doesn't make any sense. Why would you limit a gadget like this in such a way? At the very least the gadget should be height responsive. As it is right now, it will only display the top 1 to 1 1/2 inches of the target page. It's no small wonder that there is very little demand. Who would demand a gadget that doesn't work? Not to mention you've buried the issue and locked down the voting.

This is not a complicated fix. I would imagine there are quite a few users out there who would use this gadget to display view only pages in a clean knowledge space, while the source page resides in a working space that's locked down. 

Hi Michael,

Thank you for your feedback on the request. The development team will see this and can take it into account.

The voting is blocked now as a result of the request being closed, and not for any other reason.

I hope this clarifies things for you.

Take care and have a pleasant rest of your week.

Kind Regards,
Shannon

@Shannon Spaniol Sorry if that sounded a little harsh. That gadget would have been an elegant solution to a frustrating problem we're having. 

I understand that Atlassian can't please everyone, everytime.

Hi Michael,

No worries! I do understand the frustration and we are trying to implement as many features as possible to please the greater number of users.

Cheers,

Hi Michael,

It's probably worth noting now, that Atlassian have announced that they're deprecating this gadget by 11th September.

They currently offer no other alternative for displaying Confluence Pages (or external pages/iframes) within a JIRA Dashboard gadget.

Thanks Warren, I saw that come across my desk yesterday. They did have a work-around, but I doubt that's going to work for us. We've gone a different route anyway.

 

Cheers,

 

Michael
