Hi Viktar,

What do you mean by "lock attachments and (or) page"? Could you explain it or describe some use case?


It looks like this issue was not resolved, but i think i have the same question. 

What is the best way to allow only one user at a time to edit an attachment on a confluence page? 

For example, we're using the excel macro, but if multiple users try to edit the spreadsheet at the same time, they are not notified/prompted that anyone else has the attachment opened - and when they save and close the file, the last one to save, is the current/visible version. 

We'd like to lock out everyone else from editing the spreadsheet, until one active user has saved and closed.... similar to a network folder situation which tells the user someone else is in the file and they can only view the file read-only.  Ideas?  Is this possible? 


Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi Cynthia,

did you find a solution for this problem? I can't believe that so few people have an interest in it.
