      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Problem

      Attachment preview is enabled automatically for attachment files within Confluence. This is unsupported on some browsers and for some users is an undesired response when clicking on an attachment.

      Suggestion

      • Disable preview for certain file extensions - See CONFSERVER-36899
      • Disable preview for certain spaces
      • Tell Confluence how to handle opening certain extensions
      • Disable entirely for the instance - Workaround, disable the Confluence Previews plugin as per Community post
      • Disable by user (preferably so the user can toggle preview functionality via a profile setting without admin permissions)
      • Disable previews for Confluence search results [for attachments when clicked on, resulting out of Confluence search results]
