Hi Benoit,

Assuming you are in Confluence, when in your page, click on Tools > Attachments . When the attachment is listed, you should have a option on the right side saying “Remove”. 


Hope this helps,


For additional info please refer to Deleting an Attachment doc.


or to this youtube video showing how you do it on practice.





Hi Marlon,

Thanks for the quick feedback. BUT I wish to delete the attachment that is in a Confluence question, not in a page.

the information you refered to, does not apply to attachment of a Confluence question. any other idea ?

Hello there,

I was only able to delete the attachment when I edited the Question after posting it.




that would be fine for me, but I don't see any menus to perform this... Could you tell me how you did that concretely ?
