Save files via UNC into Confluence

Is there a plugin, or feature that would allow us to save files directly into Confluence from another app? E.G. We have a files page under each customer page which contains the config files for all their gear. We would like to be able to update these files directly rather than saving to a file on a PC and then moving into Confluence.

Hi Mark,

you can use the WEB-DAV integration as described here: 

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Configuring+a+WebDAV+client+for+Confluence

Or you can use the REST-API:

https://docs.atlassian.com/confluence/REST/latest/#d3e670

Or you can use the deprecated SOAP-API:

https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CONFDEV/Confluence+XML-RPC+and+SOAP+APIs

 

WEB-DAV might be the easiest solution as you can mount confluence as network drive...

+1 for the WebDAV plugin. It works pretty well. One caveat is it doesn't play so nicely with pages that have non-standard characters for file names. But, if your page doesn't have that issue then it should work nicely.

Thanks guys

I agree that Webdav should be perfect for us. I am currently not able to use it though. Is there a master setting to enable Webdav? I see there is a webdav config page, but it is more of an exception page to limit access, which would indicate that by default it is enabled. When I try to connect from my workstation on the same subnet I can't access the share.

OK. I found out why. It seems that the redirect in iptables can't deal with webdav. Changing the URL to \\confluence@8090\webdav got me to the auth challenge, but nothing I enter will get me further.

Running from Windows 8.1. I have tried both the admin use and AD integrated user names.

What is the domain for an internal confluence user? I have tried credentials as admin, confluenc\admin and .\admin. Nothing seems to work.

 

Regards

Mark
