Confluence macros don't display

Confluence version 5.3. When trying to Insert - Other Macros in popup window displayed only 4 macro in two tabs (All and External Content).

In all other blank page.

Also, while trying to add gliffy diagramm (Insert - Gliffy Diagram) first it shows gliffy edit page, but after exiting from it I recieve next message: "There is no metadata configured for this macro which means no configuration screen can be presented here".

Thanks in advance!

In my case problem was in timeout, add in your setenv file: -Datlassian.plugins.enable.wait=600.

Thanks Hanis for help)

Indeed, add the JVM parameter -Datlassian.plugins.enable.wait=600 to increase the timeout value and then restart Confluence for the setting to be picked up. See Configuring System Properties for tips on how to set an environment variable.

I've responded to your issue raised in our support system :) Let's give out my suggestions a try and once we managed to resolve this issue, I'll post up the answer here for other's reference as well.


Have You reach any conclusions yet?

I have exactly the same problem after updating to 5.3



I also have exactly the same problem following a recent upgrade to 5.3

the parameter -Datlassian.plugins.enable.wait=600 is set.

Can you please help?

In this case, it was due to proxy configuration. To check on this, we've temporarily bypass proxy and access Confluence directly via IP:port or localhost:port, temporarily update this new url into Confluence Admin > General Configuration > Base URL and check if the issue is reproducible.
