RSS Feed in Confluence (OnDemand)

Is there any way to add an RSS feed to a conflunce page? In this case, we are trying to add RSS feeds from our Diigo account (bookmarking app).

We did it before when we were using a downloaded version. Now we are OnDemand. This seems to tell me no -, but maybe there is a work around. We hope.

Hi, RSS has been disabled due to security concerns. Refer to for a full explanation.

You'll need a download / hosted version of Confluence other than OnDemand to do this.

Can you show me some documentation on what the securitey risk is. Would that risk be any less or diffrent if I was using the Macro on the "download / hosted version"?

"My opinion" -- this has to do with the support overhead, debugging man hours etc more so than simply a security risk. This is why all html in many places have been disabled. The OnDemand platform is used by the common user and they can easily not know what they are doing and break stuff.

If you do know what you are doing, it might be ok. That's all. However, Atlassian would have a hard time if something happens say and have resolve it all.

The download / hosted versions are for more advanced users.

Hi all,


We would love to have an alternative for that but in the mean time for the sake of security it will remain disabled in the OnDemand offering, as Harry mentioned you can have this if you host your own Confluene instalation but then you will also have all the extra burden of maintaining it. Our offering is able to keep it's low prices due to the economy of scale not having to support this tricky/gray areas were a lot of troubleshooting is needed.

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...
