Confluence cluster node name ignored not working (Docker setup)


Hey! I installed Confluence data center from official docker image. Here the problems:

1) I have to switch network node to host because Confluence need to see other node
2) confluence.cluster.interface env parameter missing so it need to be configured at startur, what is wired as I want to have everytinig in docker-compose

3) parameter ignored and even it set, Clustering section shows Node Name: Not configured.

1 and 2 is FYI to fix documentation
3 - cant find any solution to fix this.

Hi  @mishurovskiy_a ,

please check the following file CONFLUENCE_INST/bin/ and check if the parameter has been correctly added.

Here an example


# Set the JVM arguments used to start Confluence.

# For a description of the vm options of jdk 8, see:


# For a description of the vm options of jdk 11, see:


CATALINA_OPTS="-XX:+IgnoreUnrecognizedVMOptions ${CATALINA_OPTS}"




If you change that parameter you need to restart the node.
Hope this helps,

No effect, still not configured
