The Universal Wiki Converter requires the User Date Metadata Framework plugin (UDMF) to set user and date metadata on each page.
In Confluence 5+ this plugin has been superceded by the Confluence Metadata Plugin 2 and it doesn't seem possible to use the UDMF plugin anymore. I've tried copying the UDMF jar into the WEB-INF/lib folder but Confluence 5.2 won't start up using it.
This is causing a problem when trying to convert user and date metadata from Jive. I'm seeing these errors after converting each page:
REMOTE_API_ERROR: Problem setting create or last modified date
It looks like this is thrown by the biz.artemis.confluence.xmlrpcwrapper.RemoteWikiBroker class in the UWC ("UDMF plugin not installed or enabled").
I've downloaded and built the latest version of the UWC but can't see any changes to make this work.
As I can't install the UDMF plugin in Confluence 5.2, has anyone managed to convert user/date metadate into Confluence 5.2 with the Confluence Metadata Plugin 2?
If so, what changes are required to the UWC?
The problem has now been solved by installing the UDMF plugin via the "Upload add-on" button on the Confluence Manage Plugins page, rather than putting the JAR file into the WEB-INF/lib directory (as https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.steepdevelopment.confluence.udmf suggests)
With the UDMF plugin installed in Confluence 5, the user/date metadata can be converted by the UWC.
