I have some HTML pages generated by a tool from source code that describe APIs for in-house usage. It would be great if I could integrate these HTML pages into Confluence so that users that are logged in to Confluence can see the pages and non-authenticated users cannot.
How can I integrate these external pages? Is it possible with plugins?
My team tries to replace our current MediaWiki instance with Confluence. In MediaWiki we used a simple Special-Pages plugin to integrate external pages.
I have tested both the "HTML Include" Macro that comes with Confluence and the "HTML Include Replace" plugin from the marketplace.
The built-in macro has the problem that relative links are not handled properly (see CONF-6567) and the third-party plugin requires the user to already have access to the external HTML pages. But this is why I wanted to integrate the pages in the first place (a catch-22).
What do you mean with "obscurely served"? Just not mentioning the URL outside of the protected Confluence pages? That would be a bit too weak, I guess.
My current thinking is about writing an Apache auth module for the external HTML pages which connects to the Confluence SQL database backend directly.
