First time Authenticating with Alfresco in Confluence

The first time you use Alfresco in Confluence, you will need to:

  • Configure the Alfresco Repository URL in the plugins admin config panel and select the Alfresco version you are connecting to.
  • Users will have to authorize with your Alfresco account (located in user's Confluence Profile panel - or "Alfresco tab")


Exploring Alfresco from Confluence

To use Alfresco in Confluence, explore the many macros, in your macro browser - and also accessible from the drop-down "insert" menu (identifiable with the Alfresco icon) when in Edit mode on a page.


Edit and Saving Alfresco Files

The plugin supports uploading file changes to Alfresco. This functionality relies on Office Connection system plugin, which should be installed and enabled by default in Confluence.

To edit a document using Alfresco File macro:

  1. Insert an Alfresco File macro on your Confluence page. Make sure you check the Allow Edit box in the macro.

2. Save the Confluence page. You should see the Edit in Office button on top of your embedded Alfresco file on your Confluence page.

3. Click Edit in Office to launch Office. You may be prompted to install the WebDAV Launcher plugin in your browser if you don't already have it installed.

4. Edit the document and save it in Office.

5. The changes will be automatically uploaded to the server. You still need to refresh the Confluence page to see the updated content.

Edit a Document using Alfresco List macro

Click the Edit link for the file in the folder.


If you have SVG type Google Drive files 

SVG files must be supported by your Confluence server in order to work in Confluence. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Confluence server and find the directory where Confluence was installed.
  2. Edit <confluence-install-directory>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/mime.types
  3. Add a line with image/svg+xml  svg svgz
  4. Restart the Confluence application server.

In future, when inserting a reference to an SVG image using the Google Drawing macro, the SVG image will be displayed properly.
