How to update Applinks manually?

We are currently running Confluence 3.5.13 and won't be able to update for a while.

We also have a JIRA instance and want to use the Application Link feature. Unfortunately we are running into this bug:

The AppLinks version bundled with our Confluence is 3.3 and if I understand the version matrix AppLinks 3.4 should also be compatible with Confluence 3.5.13. Is that correct?

If that is the case how can I update the AppLinks Plugin in my current installation?

Thanks a lot!

Hello Karola,

I have not tested this, but it does not mean that you can't try! You could pickup the AppLinks Plugin and install it to your Confluence.

You can pickup the file inside <confluence-install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/com/atlassian/confluence/setup, Bundled plugins are included in a zip of jars called

So you can pickup the new plugin and upload it though Confluence UI at Plugins > Upload Plugin.

There is no guarantees, there might be dependencies for the plugin to run, but its worth a try.
