When embedding a Google Drive file to a confluence page, will the contents of that file become searchable within confluence? My initial testing seems to say no but I may need to leave it longer to index the contents?
If it doesn't is there any other way to achieve this other than ignoring the embed function and instead copying the contents of that file to the page?
Hello there, @Samantha_Sergeant. Glad to receive a newcomer. You will love it here!
As I understand, we need to check if Google Drive files are available for search within Confluence after you include the Google Drive macro in your pages.
If we are talking about the Atlassian issued plugin for Google Drive files, I can tell you that no, they will not come up in our searches. I have a Confluence Cloud site and tried to search Google Drive files that are displayed within pages and they do not show up in the results.
The files are not actually attached to the instance. Since the files are not really inside Confluence, it is just a “window” that shows what is inside your Google Drive.
The plugin I am referencing is this one:
I can not speak for the other plugins, which are these:
Let me know which of these plugins you are actually using, Samantha! Looking forward to your reply.
