Confluence: When using Meeting Notes Blueprint, it creates duplicate index page

We are running into an issue when we create a page using the Meeting Notes Blueprint, it creates a second index page.

Currenlty, a Meeting Notes index page exists, but when someone uses the Blueprint, it creates Meeting Notes (2). It doesn't increment the index page after two though. It doesn't seem to recognize that the very first index page already exists. How can we prevent this?

Hello Catherine, this is a known issue for version 5.5-OD-24, and has been fixed in later versions, you may like to upgrade to 5.6 once it is available. Also there is a workaround for such here, it invovles some database tinkering.

Hi Guilherme, thanks for the reply. The issue you reference is for tasks. Is this applicable to the index page as well? I don't see anything in the comments related to the index page getting duplicated,which is what we are facing. Do you have a KB article that we can reference for fix this in the database? We are using a hosted environment.

We have exactly the same problem, for product requirements index, meting notes index, etc ... 

Hi, we have exactly the same (more than annoying) issue. The index page is duplicated all the time (NOT the tasks on the index page, but the index page itself).

Is it related to the fact that we changed somehow that index page, or because we moved it ?

We are on Confluence 6.0.4 !

We're seeing this issue on 6.5.0, but only in one space. We use the Create Meeting Note button on the Meeting Notes page in that space and it always creates a Meeting Notes (2) page. I don't know why but a workaround which seems to be working so far is to:

Rename the Meeting Notes page to Junk

Rename the Meeting Notes (2) to Meeting Notes

Move any child pages under Junk to the Meeting Notes

Delete Junk.

There seems to be some internal linkage from the meeting note creation to the newly create Meeting Notes (2) page which I can neither find nor break, so the solution for now seems to be to just go with it and just tidy it up so that the names appear correctly.

The above workaround worked on Confluence Server 6.7.1 but one note or caution, when you Delete Junk do not delete the child pages else you'll have to restore them from trash.
