Embedding existing image not displaying in Confluence

  • Image in set to anyone with a link can view.
  • Image is in a standard Google Drive open to anyone with a link
  • I have tried embedding the image directly as an existing image
  • Have also tried adding new embed then copying the image in.
  • Both times the diagram shows for me, but no one else can view they get "Cannot read <insert file name here> file from Google drive
  • Have tried creating the embedded page in another part of our confluence with same result.

Yes I'm using the embeded macro for draw-io

Solved my own problem.  Turns out google was lying.  the document showed in my GDrive and I uploaded from my GDrive but must in fact not have been there.  I created a copy of the doc making sure it was saved in Google drive and it worked first time.  Thanks for the help though.
