WebDAV for Confluence

Use Confluence attachments from a network folder and easily copy or change attachments in Confluence pages and blogposts


This is the documentation for the Atlassian Confluence app WebDAV for Confluence.


Head to the settings within Confluence. Note that administrator privileges are required to access the settings.

In the menu on the left side, navigate to “Find new apps” under the “apps” category. Search for “WebDAV”, wait until the entry “WebDAV for Confluence” is shown and proceed to “Install” the app.

Connecting to WebDAV

Since we cannot access your Confluence password, you have to set a WebDAV password within Confluence. You can access the WebDAV configuration in your profile menu:


Make sure to set a password and follow the instructions for your Operating System on the same page to get access to WebDAV.

Accessing deleted files

Any files deleted within WebDAV are moved to the “WebDAV Recycle Bin”. Each Confluence Space has its own Recycle Bin, where all deleted files from that Space are moved to. You can view deleted files and restore them in the Recycle Bin:

You can also permanently delete those files within the Recycle Bin. Note that those files count towards your Confluence storage quota (250GB at the moment), so make sure to empty the Recycle Bin if you’ve deleted a large amount of files using WebDAV.


If you encounter any issues, feel free to send us an email at support@codefortynine.com. We usually reply within one business day.


Thanks for using WebDAV for Confluence!
