Can confluence load plugin jar from local file system

Hi, I got a problem about confluence plugin. Now the add-ons installed by user are loaded from table PLUGINDATA, then put into directory plugin-cache. Is there some configuration that we can load this plugin from local file system like JIRA installed-plugin directory?

Via the Universal Plugin Manager an administrator can upload JAR files of relevant plugins from the file system into your Confluence instance - see under!

Hi Zheng,

Additionally to Norbert's answer, the default directory for Confluence bundled plugins, where all the JAR files are stored is confluence-install-directory/confluence/web-inf/atlassian-bundled-plugins.

There's no directory with JAR files for the user-installed plugins. All these are uploaded with UPM, just like Norbert commented.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

So when confluence start up, the user-installed plugin must be loaded from database not file system directory?
