My name is Karen Mustain. I'm a Solution Designer for Confluence at Cerner. We use Confluence for our controlled documentation for our solutions. Recently, it was brought to our attention in an audit that when looking at a previous version of a Confluence page with an attached image the latest version of the image is displayed.
When looking at the Confluence page history and selecting one of the previous page versions, if the page has an attached image, the current behavior of Confluence is to show the latest version of the attached image.
It should show the version of the image which was available at the point of time of the page version.
The auditors had a concern that the latest version of the image was referenced instead of the version applicable to the page version.
There is an existing suggestion to change the current behavior: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-37156
However, there are no plans to work on this suggestion.
I was wondering if anyone else using Confluence for their controlled documentation and has a concern with this behavior. If you do, I would encourage to comment and vote on the suggestion. As well, share if you have made any customizations to Confluence to change this behavior.
