The SystemInformationService could not be retrieved due to the following error: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Spring Application context has not been set

Cause

java.lang.NullPointerException

Hello,

Thank you for raising this with us! The error is caused by one of the points mentioned in this article: Confluence does not start due to Spring Application context has not been set.

If it is not clear when going over the list of causes, please be aware that one will still be related to the same problem you are encountering. For example, general permissions issues, etc.

Please take your time to review that article, and if you have any trouble, just let us know.

Regards,

Shannon
