Embed a Confluence page in an Iframe on a 3rd party website

Lisa Clement August 20, 2020



I am trying to use a Confluence page in our LMS and embed it in an iFrame, but I am getting the below error message. Is there anything I need to do on Confluence to allow other websites to use a link within an Iframe and display the page properly?

Hello Lisa,

Confluence pages can only be framed on pages with are of the same origin. That is, on the same Cloud site. You can read about it in the below feature request which was implemented. This was due to security reasons.

A few of our Community members also go over it here:

I've seen mention of a 3rd party add-on that could possibly help you with this, but I don't have any experience with using it myself. This is something your site admin would need to install to the site.

Please also note that it would likely also mean that the space which contains the page you are trying to embed needs to be open to the public, allowing for anonymous users to access it. 

I hope that clarifies things for you on why this isn't working, but do let us know if you have any questions or concerns!

Hi there - I know this has been answered for a while, but has their been any research into finding a way for credentials to be checked before the viewer can see the page in the iframe? Like a log-in requirement before the iframe will populate the page?
