Confluence generates a Download All link for the Attachments Macro, as well as on the View Attachments screen for Pages and Spaces. If your Confluence instance has many large attachments, this can cause performance issues, and you might want to hide the link to prevent users from downloading all attachments on a page or in a space.


  1. Click, then General Configuration
  2. Click Stylesheet, then the Edit button
  3. Add the following to the Global Stylesheet {
        display: none !important;
    a#download-all-link {
        display: none !important;
  4. Save

You can alternatively just disable Download All on a space by space basis by adding the above CSS to individual Space Stylesheets instead:

  1. Go to the space and choose Space Tools > Look and Feel from the bottom of the sidebar
  2. Choose Stylesheet then Edit.
  3. Paste the above CSS into the text field.
  4. Save
