External Attachments plugin for Confluence allows you to attach and embed files from remote or local sources via URI. All attached remote files will be automatically synchronized in the background and without any required action from user.
Great benefit of using confluence’s attachments is that you always have available the last synchronized version of the attachment. You don’t need to worry about if you lose connection to the remote file or the file is removed.
You can also see all changes (versions) on the attachment and you can always return back to the correct version of the attachment.
This plugin brings you solution based on attachments that are stored in Confluence storage which behaves as cache in our case. It means that you don’t need to access remote file directly every time you want to show it because it will be synchronized in the background automatically. So, it helps reduce bandwidth and increase speed of loading page if you have slow connection to the remote file.
