Can't install Scaffolding in Confluence


I am evaluating a the latest version on Confluence (our current version is at end of life) and am trying to install scaffolding and can't.

I have downloaded it but when I try to enable it I get the following message:

"This add-on failed to enable. It may require a license. Refer to the logs for more information."

The thing is I have a license for Scaffolding as  we have it for our production instance.


I have followed these steps:

But there is no Scaffolding link under Service Rockets Plugins area?


Please advise on how I can install this as I am very interested in having it if we upgrade to the latest Confluence.

What I did was uninstall most of the plugins. and reinstall them from scratch. that solved my problem. (I did this in test)

Thanks Andrew and Rodrigo. I was able to get it installed, it required a restart to the server and then I was good to go.


Kind Regards,


Thanks for the feedback Mark. Glad to hear that it's working now! :)

Hi Mark,

Do you see any error message in Confluence logs after installing the plugin? Do the plugin version that you are trying to install is compatible with the latest version of Confluence being used?
