Can we please have thumbnails and directly embedded SVG graphics without the need to contact an admin to "restart" Confluence etc?!
I don't think this feature is "new" and "SVG" is as well not. So please Atlassian, move!
Otherwise Atlassian will become the Microsoft of SaaS counterpart ..
Cloud: This (attach svg, insert image tag) used to work fine. The new editor breaks this.
As we are forced to start to use the new editor, we are discovering this now. Pages that have not changed for a few years, now get the improved editor with graphics that become unreadable after conversion.
(Gah. I am sooooooo frustrated with it, software quality and business in the 2020's is sucking worse than ever </grumpyoldfart-rant> )
As stated in the links above, you can patch Confluence to show an SVG by
image/svg+xml svg svgzto the file
in Confluence Editor
Unfortunately, to use the two smallest image size reduction buttons or setting a smaller size then 300px does not work with Confluence richtext editor because Confluence tries to create a thumnail on server side which is currently not supported for SVGs (and the Confluence server will return a empty, broken image).
The workaround is to use the free Confluence Source Editor, use button "<>" and set the size of teh SVG to whatever you want (which should be perfectly ok for vector graphics).
Just for completeness: You will be able to see SVG images performing the steps mentioned in the other comments on the page. However all links you may have in the SVG are not usable according to my experience. There are two ways to get this fixed:
1) Use the plugin svg-out
2) Using Confluence native functions and a user macro
In case you want to use links and don't want to use the plugin mentioned here you can still to the following:
1) making a more or less empty user macro (unrendered)
## @noparams $body
2) include that macro on a page
3) paste the the SVG in clear text from <svg> including </svg> into the macro body.
