An attachment is any file that is included with your page. Examples of attachments are images, screenshots, photographs, Word documents, presentations, and PDF, multimedia and sound files.
Quick guide to attachments
- Go to Tools > Attachments to view and attach files to a Confluence page. See Attaching Files to a Page.
- If you attach a file with the same name as an existing attachment, Confluence will create a new version of the existing attachment.
- Once you have attached a file, you can then create a link to it on a Confluence page. When a user clicks the link, the attachment will open, provided that the user has the software application needed to open the attachment.
- You can display attached images and multimedia content on the page.
- If the attachment is an Office document, use the View File macro to display the content of the document on the Confluence page. If you have an Office application installed, you will also be able to launch your Office editor from within Confluence. See Displaying Office Files in Confluence and Working with the Office Connector.
Attachments are useful when you want to share information that exists in another file format. If you want an attachment to be displayed on more than one page, you may wish to consider creating a special page to hold such attachments. This special page could be part of an 'inclusions library'.
In Confluence you can attach files to any page or blog post, provided you have permission to do so.
When a page you are viewing contains attachments, a small paperclip iconappears next to the page byline. Clicking the paperclip will take you to the 'Attachments' view, where the full list of attachments is displayed.
