Believe me, I've searched high and low for an answer to how I can simply add a UNC path to my Intranet page in Confluence. None of the articles referencing anything about file:/// and all that business DO NOT work. When you attempt that method, Confluence says "Please enter a valid URL"
Seems awfully basic functionality to allow UNC paths, especially when my users are logging in via SAML.
Does anyone have a true fix?
Thanks for any help you may have.
Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
The "fix" is to understand what a UNC is. It is not a URL, and it's not "static" - it depends on how your networks are set up. In the most simple case for a UNC that will vary: /home/nic/bob.txt is not going to land on my bob.txt on your machine. And, of course, the server's UNC reading will be different (because it probably doesn't have /home/nic)
Try swapping to URLs, these define how to reach a resource and exactly where it is.
