Markdown Macro - get authorized/private page from GitLab (or any)


Can smbdy suggest any way to import my `` from private repo (GitLab, GitHub, BitBucket or any).

I mean, Confluence need a user (addon-*), or any config with credentials/endpoint - to auth on this repo and then import markdown pages. TY


There are few free plugins, but there is no "auth" options:
- confluence-markdown-macro
- marked

Markdown Extensions for Confluence - supports only GitHub and BitBucket, and is expensive for me.

Hi, you may try to use nginx proxy wich add read_access token (repository_read) to markdown request for get Readme from private repo:


http {

# Gitlab address
upstream gitlab {
server gitlab.local:443;

server {
listen 80;
server_name confluence;

location ~* "/api/([v0-9]+)/projects/([0-9]+)/repository/files/" {
proxy_pass https://gitlab;
proxy_set_header PRIVATE-TOKEN TOKEN;

And then use URL in macro:

We don't currently have plans to add support for authenticated remote connections in the short term. However, this is a free, and open source plugin. You're welcome to add it via a pull request at and we will be happy to accept it.
