How do you insert a link to a wiki attachment into another document?
For example, I have a link that I want to insert into excel as a reference. But, when I click on the lnk, I always get the Not permitted error. If I copy/paste the link into my browser, I can navigate to it just fine - but, not when using the link.
I expected that if I was not logged in, it would redirect to the login page and then allow me to access it. But, even though I am logged in to Confluence, I consistently get the Not Permitted error.
I'm getting the link by navigating to the attachment page, locating the attachment, selecting and using the Copy Link option from the popup menu.
We use office for mac 2011 and Confluence 5.1.3 and just upgraded to 5.1.4.
When I navigate to a page's Attachment page, locate the attachment and display popup menu and select Copy Link Location, then paste that into a document (whether excel, word, etc.) and then use that same link to navigate, i always get the Not Permitted error, regardless of whether I am logged in.
But, if I am logged in and paste the link back into the browser, it always downloads the document. An example URL is: https://jira.companyname.com/wiki/download/attachments/230129482/2013%2Dec%20Report.xlsx?api=v2
I would check your space permissions. It sounds like an authentication issue - executing the link from a document would be a new session, and the assumption would be that you are not logged in. If the space does not have anonymous view access, then they would be able to access the page or the attachment. I have a simllar issue, although my users are getting the error when clikcing oon the attachment link added via the editor's link button feature. Removing the URL parameter allows access, where with paramteres the user get "not permitted".
