Confluence Caching IDs

I am running v3.5.16 of confluence. I want to increase the cache size for the cache labelled 'Embedded Crowd Internal User'. From the v5 docs, and from the properties class I see that the internal ID for use in ehcache.xml should be


However, I don't see this in the ehcache config file and adding in an entry with this ID has no effect on the cache size. Can anyone confirm whether the following ehcache entry is correct:

<cache name="com.atlassian.crowd.model.user.InternalUser" maxElementsInMemory="100" eternal="false" timeToIdleSeconds="3600" timeToLiveSeconds="0" overflowToDisk="false" />

The query to determine the size of this cache returned a value of 31. I did also try increasing this to a much larger size, but there was no effect.

Pardon me from my previous reply, I was thinking this was an even earlier Confluence version. On the Cache Statistics page you can click on the 'Advanced' tab to adjust the values from the GUI. Could you give it a try if that. Actually, for me setting this in ehcache.xml as described on the previously linked article did work just fine as well.

Kind regards,


Thanks, I missed the advanced tab there. I increased the size through this.

Not sure if you have done it this way, but the following page explains how to find out the class name specifically in 3.5.x:

Kind regards,
