HTTP Status 500 – Internal Server Error

Bellina Bui February 1, 2023

Overview

I'm currently trying to set up a Confluence blueprint plugin as directed here -- https://developer.atlassian.com/server/confluence/write-a-simple-confluence-blueprint-plugin/ 

Step 2 asks me to run my plugin using 

atlas-run

This builds my plugin code and starts a local Confluence instance, however when I navigate to the generated URL I get a HTTP STATUS 500 - Internal Server Error detailed below. Please help!

Going through the tutorial for server/datacenter plugin development, I ran into this issue too. This was because I was using the Java 17 SDK, I also tried the Java 8 SDK. Both would fail when I would run and try to connect. Using the Java 11 SDK I was able to execute atlas-run and connect to the local dev environment

@Shannon S I saw that you helped Kannan resolve his issue here: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/HTTP-Status-500-Internal-Server-Error/qaq-p/947020

Would you be able to provide any insight as to why I received the 500 error? Thank you in advanced!
