Calling a .js file from within the HTML macro


I've got some HTML/java that runs a conversion process (you add in the HTML colour values and it shows an example plus converts the code to Hex etc). This is on a Confluence page inside the HTML macro.

Although the entire page is rendered, it doesn't function, so no conversions or examples. The reason for this is the macro strips out the javascript.

So, I've created a .js file and have changed part of the HTML to call the .js file.

I've tried calling it from both the page itself (having added it as an attachment) and also from my PC. Neither work.

The code I've changed used to look like this:

  • <link rel="stylesheet" href="../stylesheet-1-simple.css">

but now looks like this:

So, can anyone see what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help. :)

It's really too late but you can do it like that :

 In your atlassian-plugin.XML you have to download it as a resource:

<web-resource key="web-resources-id">
    <resource type="download" name="file-name" location="/path/file.js"/>

Then in your HTML file you can Access it using its new path:

<script src="confluence-base-url/download/resources/group-id.artifact-id:web-resources-id/file-name"/>
