Content blueprint has no ContentTemplateRef with key: simplebp-template2 Edited

I'm trying to follow the tutorials writing a blueprint for confluence ( 5.10.7 )

But i got stuck at  Write an advanced blueprint plugin
at step 1: Choosing between templates.

 when i try to create a page from the second template I get the error:

We can't create that blueprint right now.
Content blueprint has no ContentTemplateRef with key: simplebp-template2

It seems like the reference between the

<!-- Template for Blueprint -->
<content-template key="simplebp-template" template-title-key="my.blueprint.title">
<resource name="template" type="download" location="/templates/mytemplate.xml" />

<!-- Second Template for Blueprint -->
<content-template key="simplebp-template2" template-title-key="my.blueprint.title2">
<resource name="template" type="download" location="/templates/mytemplate2.xml" />

in the atlassian-plugin.xml and the


		<option value="simplebp-template2">{getText('my.blueprint.title2')}</option>

in the

I think the reference between these two doesn't work...

When i change the value (simplebp-template2) of the second template in the soy file to simplebp-template it will create the first template.

This was a problem for me as well - until I cleaned out my folder and removed the baggage from previous builds. It worked beautifully once things were cleaned up a bit.


Try this:

clean the confluence server folder periodically
Stop it by Ctrl+C
Make sure that plugin java process exited. In linux: ps -ef | grep java or through Task Manager in windows. Kill it if needed.
in project folder run: atlas-clean
launch again atlas-run or atlas-debug

Found the solution: Put the <content-template>s before their blueprint reference, like so:


<!-- Templates -->
<content-template key="template_version1" template-title-key="template_version1.title">
<resource name="template" type="download" location="/templates/version_1.xml" />

<content-template key="template_version2" template-title-key="template_version2.title">
<resource name="template" type="download" location="/templates/version_2.xml" />

<!-- Blueprint -->
<blueprint key="blp" index-key="indx">
<content-template ref="template_version1" />
<content-template ref="template_version2" />

I got stuck at the same tutorial. Nicolas' solution wasn't applicable since the <content-template>s were already before the <blueprint>.

A colleague advised me to create a standalone confluence instance with atlas-run-standalone and use atlas-cli instead of QuickReload even though it's deprecated. That did the trick for me without changing anything in my files. I'm not sure what exactly the problem was so this is more of a workaround, but it works for me...
