CLI connector plugin license check problem


I have a problem with CLI connector plugin.

I installed it on server and activate license in the confluence GUI.

When I launch the script, I have this : 

./ --action getServerInfo --outputFormat 2 --verbose
Server address: http://xxxxx:8090
Response code: 404, message: Not Found, url: http://xxxxx:8090/rest/org.swift.confluence.cli/latest/validatelicense?
Successful login to: http://xxxxx:8090/rpc/soap-axis/confluenceservice-v2 by user: jadmin.
Server info:
Product . . . . . . . . . . . : Confluence
Version . . . . . . . . . . . : 6.1.0
Base URL . . . . . . . . . . : http://xxxxx:8090
Build . . . . . . . . . . . . : 7109
License information . . . . . : CLI connector is not installed or enabled on the server. See
Response time (milliseconds) : 652

So it can't access the url to check the license (http://xxxxx:8090/rest/org.swift.confluence.cli/latest/validatelicense?)

When I check the plugin in the GUI. I see this "Plugin key:

So org.swift.confluence.acli is different from org.swift.confluence.cli used to check license.

And when I use my browser to acces http://xxxx:8090/rest/org.swift.confluence.acli/latest/validatelicense?

with the "a" , it works. Giving me this : {"status":true,"message":"Bob Swift Atlassian Add-ons - Run CLI Actions in Confluence has a valid license."}

So is it a bug ? Where can I change this ?

Thank you

Thanks for trying our add-ons. This is the add-on you should install in Confluence for client access:  Confluence Command Line Interface (CLI) . The add-on you have installed is for in Confluence support like the CLI Macro. More information is available here.


Thank you for your answer.

In fact, there is a confusion between those 2 plugins. We thought we had de confluence CLI connector and we bought the macro plugin. The macro plugin should be named something like "Confluence macro CLI" . It would be more clear =)

Do you think it's possible to switch the 2 license plugins ? We don't need the macro plugin.
