confluence pdf-export does not show jira-macro images

A pdf-export of a confluence page, containing JIRA issues using the JIRA-macro does not show images that are JIRA attachments. 

During the pdf-export the JIRA access-log shows HTTP GET requests for the missing images with response code 302 (not found). 

A application link between JIRA an Confluence is established using OAuth with impersonation in both directions.

Is this a configuration problem or a bug?

Hi Holger,

maybe this is your problem:

There is a workaround for the problem, but the problem itself is not solved yet.


Hi Thomas,

CONF-33020 is not to the problem. The URL of the JIRA attached images is reachable. The problem is that but the Confluence PDF export request the JIRA attachments images without authentication.

Hmm, I think, it is better to ask official Atlassian Support with that question ( They can look at your logfiles and configurations and so on.

Maybe they know about this problem already.

Good Luck
