Disable Confluence Mobile View?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Confluence Mobile

The article on your site says that the mobile view can be toggled on/off via the Confluence Mobile Plugin (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.confluence-mobile/versions) However this is only supported up to v5.4. Please advise and update your documentation for users that have newer versions of Confluence...how do I disable the mobile view and only allow the desktop view for users?

Hi Sabina,

The Confluence mobile plugin is now bundled with the newer versions of Confluence. I've installed Confluence 5.9.4 and the Confluence mobile plugin version 8.0.1 is there.

In order to disable the mobile view you must disable the plugin itself. Just go to confluence administration -> manage add ons -> show all add ons -> locate Confluence mobile plugin and disable it. 

This should do the trick.



Ahhh, the documentation should reflect that (so users aren't viewing the default "user installed add-ons" and instead filter out by "system add ons). Thanks!

I'm not seeing a Disable button anywhere.

I'm using the cloud version.  Does that make a difference?

Disabling the mobile plugins causes the workbox - host plugin to be disabled as well (due to a bug: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-40782) - so be aware that you'll loose more functionality as you'd expect - happened to me on Version 6.7.x...

Like Roger, I too do not see a Disable button anywhere. This is cloud version. Is a solution available for this?
