Could you explain what you need to achieve? Plugin?

REST API do gives the count of attachments for a page.

inside the principal decorator... is there something like $sitemeshPage or anything ???

The AbstractPage has a getAttachments() method on it that you could probably use. It returns a List. You could then just get the number of items in the List. What little doc there is on the method says "Don't use it directly, use AttachmentManager.getAttachments(page) instead"

According to this page (https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CONFDEV/Confluence+Objects+Accessible+From+Velocity), you can use $attachmentManager to get a reference to the AttachmentManager. The AttachmentManager has a method called countLatestVersionsOfAttachments() that appears to do exactly what you want.

nope, Those options doesn't work... :( I need to know how many attached files have the page, inside the main layout...

How do you want to use this variable?

You can display it on a page by writing a user macro & accessing the velocity context.

## Macro title: Attachment download Path
## Macro has a body: N

## Developed by: Matthew Cobby matt@andamooka.com


## Get basic manager objects first
#set($attachmentManager=$content.getAttachmentmanager())

## Get the Page manager & the target page
#set($attachmentsList=$attachmentManager.getLatestVersionsOfAttachments($content))
#set($numAttachments=$attachmentsList.size())

Number of Attachments: $numAttachments;
