What I do is edit the link manually.
1. Go to the attachments page (... / Attachments).
2. Right-click on the file you want, then Copy Link Location.
3. Go back to Edit mode.
4. Click on the link you want to change, then Edit / Advanced.
5. Paste the link you copied into the "Link" field. (I usually delete the "?api=2" at the end, but it probably doesn't matter.)
It has been a year. Has any solution to this been implemented?
So annoying that Atlassian has forced on us this "powerful new feature" which is not powerful (xlsx previews are laughably bad), and entirely beyond the control of the authors (that is, the users! This is supposed to be a wiki.)
That wants me to be an admin. I'm a user and I (and many others) find this feature very annoying. Can't I turn off this feature as a user?
I have found that the link with preview looks something like:
and if I just press middle click which will simply download the file, the link looks like:
Note that the "&preview=..." is gone.
Do I need to write a Greasemonkey script to clean up these annoyinig links? There has to be a better way to do this.
Something has changed since the new Jira view has been forced on all Jira instances hosted in the Cloud. I've been digging for a week but can not find a way to disable the Cloud preview of Attachments.
Also, when we try to right click and download, it provides an HTML download not the actual attachment.
Please help, I can't find the "Confluence Preview" plugin either.
Thanks, I found it. (Confluence 6.15.2). Must be Jira administrator. You need to paste "plugins/servlet/upm/manage/all" after your URL. For example, my log in URL is: https://confluence.xyz.com then the link should be https://confluence.xyz.com/plugins/servlet/upm/manage/all.
Or you can select cog wheel -> General configuration -> Manage apps -> select "All apps" from dropdown list box -> Ctrl+F (for searching) -> type Previews (or scroll down over half page to see it)
Thank Anh Phi Nguyen,
But unfortunately, we are not paying or utilizing confluence in our Atlassian Cloud account. Which means we have no way to disable this feature in Cloud Jira. Reaching out to Atlassian Support did not relinquish any answers either.
The New Jira View wont let you right-click and save-as, plus there is now no metadata (date, size, etc) about when a File was attached to a Jira. Which leaves us rummaging around trying to figure out which are new attachments and which ones are old.
