Best we can do is

  • Stop Confluence
  • Modify the values specified in the cwd_directory_attribute table within the Confluence database manually.   The values must match all the values specified in Confluence's
  • Start Confluence

We can't tell you how to modify your database, as we don't know what it is.  You'll need to read Confluence's in the installation directory of your Confluence - again we don't know where you've installed it.  Any text editor or even simple file viewer should show you the content.

I executed this query against our database:

mysql> select * from cwd_directory_attribute;

I can't see there. We are trying to sync with JIRA and not with the cloud. Am I doing something wrong?

I read that as saying you are looking for the in a database?  It's a file in the installation, not data.

Here is the contents of username
application.password password
application.login.url http://localhost:8095/crowd/console/

crowd.server.url http://localhost:8095/crowd/services/
crowd.base.url http://localhost:8095/crowd/

session.isauthenticated session.isauthenticated
session.tokenkey session.tokenkey
session.validationinterval 2
session.lastvalidation session.lastvalidation




Looks like that it's a default file w/o any useful data in it. Does it have to be like that?

It might be, if that's how your Crowd has been set up.  Does the database match?
