How to populate PageContext for rendering

I am working on integrating our Confluence content into a custom search index. To facilitate this, I am listening for various events (e.g. PageCreateEvent)- when the listener method fires off, I need to render the page content and put it into a custom table. Later, this table's contents will be pulled into the search index. I'm spring injecting the wikiStyleRenderer into my manager. I then call wikiStyleRenderer.convertWikiToXHtml to get the rendered content.

An issue I'm encountering is the rendering of attached images on the page. The markup


is rendered as:

<span class="error">Unable to render embedded object: File (test.png) not found.</span>

The convertWikiToXHtml method needs a RenderContext, which I get from contentEntityObject.toPageContext(). I bet that this RenderContext needs to be passed a value from which it can retrieve the image attachment. I set the attachment path on the renderContext via this code:


but that doesn't seem to be helping either. Any ideas?

Debugging the code, the attachment is found, but I don't have permission to view it. This is because the authenticated user in the ThreadLocal is null, since I spawned off a new thread for this processing via a ThreadPoolExecutor.

My PageContext is working just fine, but I need to make sure I'm performing my processing while the ThreadLocal's user is set.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
