A user uploads an attachment to a page. I intercept the event, extract the contents of the attachment and do stuff with the text.
I dont want to implement the whole attachment type recognition and text extraction by myself, as confluence does this already.
Is there a possibility to get the extracted text from the confluence api? I mean, if you click on an attachment, confluence shows you the contents. There must be an api to retrieve the text.
Does anyone know how?
@OfficeConnector Team: please provide a Service that lets plugin developers get the extracted text of uploaded attachments. You have implemented this, you have the text in your hands, but then let it disappear in the depth of confluence.
I implemented a similar function on my own. See this post on how to use Apache POI to extract plain text of uploaded Attachments: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/156739/how-to-get-apache-tika-poi-to-work-in-confluence-plugin
Please have a look at the images that I sent.
1st Image shows how the doc displays on a page.
2nd is the edit mode.
