Free options to embed an iframe in Confluence

Is there a free way to embed an iframe in Confluence?


I have a very simple use case:

I want to be able to embed my Office 365 spreadsheet into my Confluence.  This could just as easily be a Google Docs Spreadsheet or document.

I need to be able to manage my inventory in a spreadsheet, I can't realistically expect people to download/edit/reattach a spreadsheet to an article when something changes, and ... given that this is my first week at a new job where they use Confluence ... I'm blown away that I can't find a cheap and easy plugin that will allow me to do such a trivial function.


Please tell me I'm overlooking something and I don't have to pay more money to use this product?

Hi Joey,

a Confluence administrator is able to add a user macro to your Confluence instance which will provide you with an iframe.

Create a user macro, call it "myIframe" (or what you like) and add the following to your user macro code:

(no macro body)


## @param Source:title=Source|type=string|required=true|desc=Source
## @param Width:title=Width|type=int|required=true|desc=Width
## @param Height:title=Height|type=int|required=true|desc=Height

<iframe src="$paramSource" noborder="0" width="$paramWidth" height="$paramHeight" scrolling="yes" seamless></iframe>

Then put the macro "myIframe" to your page and add the parameters Source, Width and Height.
