Does anyone experience the same problem or has any idea how to override this?
We have created the app which works with the native Confluence entities - attachments and pages. But it just draws a bit different representation of them in Confluence.
When you add new items (either pages or attachments), the Confluence dashboard displays these pages and attachments (created through app). but we’d like to hide them from users. As upload of ten files drives too many irrelevant notifications on the dashboard.
While reviewing Confluence dev documentation we have not found anything useful for this. Finally, we managed to cheat Confluence and set the date for the folder one year back, so they did not appear on the dashboard. Unfortunately, this is not possible with attachments.
It will be nice to have some extension point which will allow us to filter newly added images and attachments on the Confluence dashboard (probably, by some flag or if it meets specific criteria).
We have submitted two suggestions to Atlassian, I will greatly appreciate if you could vote on these tickets:
If someone has encountered a similar situation or knows a better solution, I will be very grateful for sharing this.
