Automatically check for new available versions

We want to monitor if new versions are available for the applications Stash, JIRA and Confluence.
Is there a way to retrieve (via api?) what the newest available software version for those applications are?

I saw that the Stash application itself could retrieve this information on the manage addon page and than stash update check.

The reason we want to know this is for automatically check if new software versions are available.

As far as I know, this is not possible. The only commands I could find in confluence API to check versions of contents, not the system version.

Also, I couldn't find any bundled command in confluence to check for the latest version yet. I believe it's not implemented as stash is.

I'll leave this question open so other people might know if there's a way to implement this automatically.



You might also have a look here:

There are also RSS-feeds on notifying about new releases - perhaps you can use this data source (for example: - unless Atlassian is very negligent on this (Stash 3.4.0/3.4.1 is not announced on RSS-feed (yet?)) sad

In another post of you Johannes I saw an answer using this url:

I've checked the json and saw that in there also the minor versions are noticed.

For JIRA and confluence the following url's could be used:


Thx for helping!
