Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-8262) Please provide access to the intermediate HTML produced by PDF exports from Confluence
Date Fri, 05 Sep 2014 12:04:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-8262?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14122841#comment-14122841

Tony Stevenson commented on INFRA-8262:

it is not the HTML export themselves that I am worried about, it is the unknown nature of
what else is in the temp folder.

> When exporting a Confluence space to PDF, "intermediary HTML" (aka "intermediate HTML")
is produced as part of the process.  Confluence docs recommend using this to troubleshoot
formatting/conversion issues, to enable e.g. PDF export-specific CSS tweaks (http://downloads.atlassian.com/software/confluence/downloads/documentation/Confluence_5-0-2_UserGuide_PDF_DOC-20130726.pdf
, p. 291):

> If styling is not working as expected, it is useful to look at the intermediary HTML
source to which the CSS is applied. This intermediary HTML is created whenever you create
an HTML export that contains multiple pages, and is stored in the temp directory in Confluence's
home directory. For example:
> <confluence-home>/temp/htmlexport-20110308-154047-1/export-intermediate-
> 154047-2.html

> Gavin McDonald found an example of "intermediate HTML" for a  PDF export of the Solr
Reference Guide space (key "solr") on the Confluence VM at the following location (notably
different from the documented location included above):
> /x1/cwiki/confluence-data/temp/htmlexport-20140829-193431-10839/export-intermediate-193431-10840.html
> It would be great if the "intermediate HTML" files produced as part of a PDF export were
automatically accessible, e.g. via web server.  AFAIK there is nothing about them that would
require restricted access, since they are PDF exports of public-facing Confluence wiki pages,
so there shouldn't be any access control requirements for providing this access.
