    Confluence Attachment Download features & benefits.

    Using this Add-on prevents problems with URLs to attachments changing even when the page title and attachment filename remain the same. This can happen when you restore a Confluence backup, or when moving content from a staging environment to your production environment.

    The other main use is to provide URLs to attachments that don’t break when a user is not logged in to Confluence, such as when you preview a page in an email update or on your Confluence login page.

    • Provides a fixed URL for your attachments
    • Respects the permissions you’ve set in Confluence.

    We want to trace users' attachment download activity. If user access logging is enabled following: https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/how-to-enable-user-access-logging-182943.html, and if we use Attachment Download add-on to let one attachment with one URL, could we successfully trace each web page's attachment download activity (i.e. which attachment downloaded by whom at when) ?

    Hi Sophia,

    My name is Rafael Franco and I'm the Tech Lead of the Product Team here at Adaptavist. Thanks for your interest and review on Attachment Download.

    Regarding your question, I assume it would work fine since you're accessing Confluence thus it would register the IP address of the anonymous user.

    Hi Florentin,

    I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing issues with this add-on. Attachment Download version 2.2 is compatible with Confluence 5.5-5.7.x and no longer requires licensing via our Plugin Licensing Manager add-on.

    In order to assist you with any issues you are facing, could I ask you to please raise a support issue using our contact form http://www.adaptavist.com/w/about/contact-us/ and our support team will be happy to investigate the issue and help resolve it.

    Thank you,

    Adaptavist Product Team

    Would give it 4 stars if it wasn't for extremely slow releases of new versions compatible with Conluence builds. Confluence 5.6 is out for quite a long time, why can't the plugin be updated already?

    Is there a plan, when this plugin will be available for Confluence 5.1? [edit] I'm not sure if i have installed it correctly, but a 4-star you will get if i got the link in your format from every attachments-macro and every attachments-view which already exists in Confluence, because after i installed it in our 5.1.1 Installation i still see the old links like ".../download/attachments/123456789/file.ext" greetings Benjamin

    thanks for your feedback. We've just verified that the plugin is fully compatible with Confluence 5.1 so have updated the listing.

    In return, could you let me know what we could add to this plugin to persuade you to give it a 4 star review?



    Thanks for the update Benjamin. When Attachment Download is installed you can link to all of your existing attachments with our fixed format, but what it won't be able to do is edit all of your existing attachment links that were there prior to installing the plugin.
