How can I find attachments of the page?

The documentation says that attachments are saved under '...\download\attachments\xxxxxx'
where 'xxxxxx' is the page ID of the page containing the attachments. 

How to find page ID? I do see a lot of attachments, but all are saved in hierarchical folder structure.

Hi there,


You can refer to this document here to get your page ID : How To Get Page ID

Step-by-step guide

  1. Ensure that the current user has enough privilege to View and Edit the page
  2. Navigate to a specific page

  3. Go to Edit Mode by clicking Edit button or press 'e' key
  4. The URL in the address bar will change once you enter Edit Mode
  5. Page ID will be displayed as the parameter in the URL

    e.g.: When entering Edit Mode, the URL will change to

    In the example above, 1540132 is the Page ID.

In Addition, you can refer to this document here for your Attachment's folder hierarchy :Hierarchical Files system Attachment 


Hope these help.

Thank you.

Thanks, Wayne. This does help, but now that I've figured out the location, I discover that the attachments are renamed differently than how they appear when opened directly on the confluence page on the browser. Is there any rule on naming of attachments also?
