    Password protected, encrypted content blocks for Confluence

    Password protected, encrypted content blocks for Confluence




    Secure Content Blocks are encrypted before being stored in the database and are only decrypted when an authorized user provides their credentials.

    The author, and those with edit permission, of the Secure Content Block can grant permissions to groups, allowing others to read, or edit content, ensuring that information is only accessible to those with permission.

    After editing the Secure Content Block, content is hidden on the Confluence page with the click of a button, adding an extra level of security to your information.

    More details

    The secure content block add-on provides a macro to embed encrypted data into any Confluence page. This means sensitive data is securely stored in the database and permission to decrypt that data is controlled by a user's group membership. Useful for support teams to share passwords or for any other sensitive data that is stored in Confluence.

    While the plugin does what it says well, the lack of an audit trail and roll-back history is a little less than optimal. I'm also a little disappointed that the word 'key' was used as a field name, given that 'key' is a reserved word in MySQL. There is at least a work-around in the event that a block's contents are destroyed without having to revert everything... If you have backups of your backing database (we'll assume MySQL), then you can restore that backup to another location, copy the contents of the row in question (in their encrypted form), and run an UPDATE against the corresponding row in the live database. Done.

    Excellent critique William. Versioning has been implemented and is slated for the next release. Following that will be audit trail, roll-back, and other administrative features (e.g. delete is a dark feature in the next release). The use of 'key' is an obnoxious relic from [my] side project that became Secure Content. We do intend to change 'key' to an unreserved keyword as well. For now we have to write our sql as `key`.

    Other than bug fixes, Secure Content has not changed since its inception in Confluence 4.something. This was a conscience decision to minimize the risk of upgrading Confluence, but has started to hinder the potential of Secure Content in Confluence. We will stick to this philosophy as much as we can as we introduce new features and functionality.

    Very nice plug-in that cover most of our security-sesitive use-cases of storing customer access credentials to their systems and very fine granular to control with the Confluence build-in groups to give read-only or read/write control to this container. One star I have to substract there is no history for the container like the page history if it was changed. If you delete the stored informations in the container and save, everything was lost and not recoverable. Also that every container must be opened seperatly and everytime to type the password is not a good solution.

    Thanks! It is our intention that one have to enter a password for every piece of sensitive information, every time. We have favored heightened security until a time that we make the security policy configurable. We will soon be implementing content history to prevent data-loss. We have a number of other changes coming in a soon to be released refresh as well. Thanks again for your review.

    Great tool for embedding credentials and sensitive financial information in a page. As the description states, the secure content is not actually on the page, but rather is fetched from a separate database object. This allows us to encrypt a set of credentials once and then embed them in multiple pages for different contexts. When the credentials are updated, all pages displaying that object get the update. I subtracted one star for two reasons: (a) the macro only accepts raw text - no formatting, no tables, no anything; (b) the encrypted content cannot be edited or previewed in the editor mode, so you have to do your page edits first, then save, then go back and fill in the secure content.

    Every occurrence of this macro requires Confluence password to be given separately even if you are already logged in and you have the access rights the macro occurencies require. An other thing is that this macro seems to work with local passwords, not with federated ones, for example. I am looking for a macro which shows it's content automatically if a logged in user has the required access rights (and I want that trusted content to be located on the same page with content open for all). Could this be implemented in this macro, maybe as an option?

    This is a feature request that we have. We specifically designed the macro to require a password every time to validate that the user at the keyboard is the logged in user but do plan to offer a passwordless option in a future release. Is your rating of the add-on really a 2 or are you trying to be neutral when asking a question?

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server add-on pricing work?

    Server products and add-ons are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your host product and add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If add-on pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing tier?

    The add-on tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a Confluence Server license for 25 users, you should purchase the 25-user tier for add-ons. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    For server add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server add-ons, you can extend your add-on trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    How can I buy add-ons for my legacy JIRA Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy add-on pricing is no longer available. You have two options for add-on purchasing:

    • Purchase the add-on at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the add-on at the same tier.
