Here is the solution.

I successfully returned to new dashboard after performing this steps:

  • # mysql -p
  • mysql> use confluence;
  • mysql>

    delete from OS_PROPERTYENTRY where entity_key ='user.features.enabled' OR entity_key ='confluence.user.runtime.recent-changes.size' OR entity_key='confluence.macros.dashboard.selected.tab';

    Query OK, 56 rows affected (0.08 sec)

  • mysql> exit
  • # /etc/init.d/confluence restart

  • update confluence web page and login again

     

     

Thank you! Works for me too on Microsoft SQL Server.

Same question. And have already heard the same question from others in my org.

And where does the "feedback" go? And how can on-prem customers remove this option?

Same question, any ideas?

Just found a solution for my problem.

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF50/Customising+the+Getting+Started+Guide+on+the+Dashboard

and then follow section "The default getting-started section" (reset default for global layout).

It doesn't help. I edited Global Layout, removed all code and saved, then I got nothing on my dashboard. Then I used Reset to Default, but dashboar stayed with old style.

My first idea was to return to backup and upgrade again but it's not a good idea. I've created support ticked to Atlassian in same time I posted question here. Still waiting for reply from them. I believe this glitch will be fixed in next release.

Same question, any updates?

There is a knowledge base article that describes the steps to re-enable the new dashboard.
See How to reenable the new dashboard in Confluence 5.9 for that.
