How to include an iframe in a Confluence page?


I want to add an iFrame link from JIRA Portfolio into a Confluence page.


<iframe src='https://jira.srv.<>/secure/PortfolioSharedReportView.jspa?r=lydy9&t&e' width='640' height='400' style='border : 1px solid #ccc;'></iframe> 

I do not have the iFrame macro in my Confluence. I used HTML macro within which I pasted the iFrame link. But all that I see is an empty white box in preview and after saving. 

Is there a way to add this link to Confluence page?

There is a security header added to protect against clickjacking, that prevents Jira or Confluence pages from being displayed in an iframe inside HTML macro. You can disable clickjacking protection by following Confluence page does not display in an iframe KB, but we do not recommend it for security reasons. 

Alternatively, you can use some third-party plug-ins instead of HTML Macro without compromising security, like this one 

See How to put an iFrame into Confluence for more details.
