We have 000's of files we want to upload to our (being installed) version of Confluence on our server. We'd like to have some control over the display page (sorted by name, headings etc.) BUT we'd like to manage volume file attachments as quickly & effectively as possible.
Does anyone know of an efficient way to hide columns on the Attachments page (i.e. Hide Size, Creator, Creation Date, Labels, Comment so our users see only the list of attached files (which they can sort A-Z or Z-A I notice.))?
Summary: We'd like to link volume files quickly but still have control over how the user sees (& access) them. Thanks in advance for any thoughts. HB
Generally, storing a large amount of files in Confluence as attachments is not a good idea - Confluence is a wiki, not a CDN or a file share.
I would take another approach - to store the files "somewhere else" (fileserver) and have a custom macro that shows the files in Confluence. This macro could then have all the features for access audits, and etc
Many thanks Sash. Will open a discussion with my IT lead to explore. From a knowledge sharing perspective, we're trying to stay as close as we can to 'fast, reliable & all there' but if it is fast (my target is 3 Mb's in 3 secs) & reliable - it's worth at least a prototype. - HB
