It is not welcome.action that is disabled. It keeps popping to certain users everytime they enter dashboard.


Happens eg. Confluence 6.4.

Hello Arto,

Can you please try the procedure to disable it for users below? 

To disable the welcome message for all users, complete the following steps to disable the Onboarding Filter:  

  1. Go to Manage Add-ons.
  2. Choose System from the drop-down menu.
  3. Search for "onboarding".
  4. Expand all modules.
  5. Disable the Onboarding Filter.
  6. After disabling, new users won't be redirected to the /welcome.action page the first time they log into Confluence, instead, they will be redirected to the Confluence Dashboard.

Please be aware that this will disable for all Confluence users.

Let us know if you have any trouble.



Like said in  my posts those onboarding modules are disabled. This is not the welcome action but something totally different.

Apologies, Arto. I didn't understand from your description that is what you meant.

We will need to look deeper into this for you using information from your database, so I will create a support ticket now for you to get those details.

Please check your email in a few minutes for further information.



Problem solved by disabling onboarding dialog in Confluence dashboard plugin . Thanks @Wayne Wong

Great! Thank you for letting me know you were able to determine with Wayne's help exactly which module controls that notification.

Take care, and have a pleasant rest of your week.
