How do I troubleshoot iframe macro?

I have used the example in the article, and while I can successfully do html include macro to show, if I put it in the iframe in html macro, it shows nothing.

If I put /dashboard.action info the iframe, it does work, just not any external.  Whitelist is turned off at this time.

Hi Mark, 

If you are on 5.8.15+ of Confluence, this is likely due to a security fix implemented to prevent clickjacking.See Confluence pages in iFrame no longer display after upgrading to 5.8.15 for a workaround. Note, that following the workaround will make your Confluence instance vulnerable to clickjacking so we don't recommend implementing. Follow at your own risk.

Unfortunately, that link results in 403 forbidden.  Is there a public version of the workaround available?

I still cannot access the workaround you mentioned due to Atlassian permissions.

Please let me know where I can find the workaround.

also getting a 403. What is the workaround?
