Integrating Script Runner with Confluence 5.7

Good day,

We are currently using confluence 5.7, we would like to know if there is any latest script runner version that we can integrate with the current confluence version we are using. So far, the one we found online is not compatible. 

Kindly advise.

Thanks and regards,

ScriptRunner can easily be installed in Confluence, it just has a few extra steps to install it. The documentation for the installation is located here: ScriptRunner for Confluence It includes the following built-in scripts, as well as a Script Console to run arbitrary scripts. 

Built-in Scripts

  • Copy a tree of pages
  • Switch user identity
  • Copy user permissions, watches, network etc to another user
  • Delete tree(s) of pages
  • XPath search in pages

It does NOT include a Groovy page macro, unfortunately.

Installation process

  1. You MUST install the Groovy Runtime FIRST
    1. https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/org.codehaus.groovy.groovy-all-atlassianplugin
  2. Install the Script Runner package
    1. https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/viewpageattachments.action?pageId=11567119

You should read the documentation here completely FIRST, it's not long. https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/CSR/Script+Runner+for+Confluence+Home

Hi Steven, Thank you for your help. It seems that Groovy Runtime does not support Confluence 5.7. When i have installed the jar successfully, i got a message "This add -on is not compatible with your Confluence instance" Could please advice me if there is any Groovy Runtime for Confluence 5.7 Thanks and Regards, Swarna

I have Groovy Runtime 2.1.3 installed in my Confluence 5.7.4 instance with no issues. It isn't warning me about anything. Are you using the same version of the runtime as me? I noticed that the one on the marketplace is 2.1.3.1 but the one on the Confluence page is 2.1.3.

Hi Swarna,

If you are after ScriptRunner for Confluence then it is not currently compatible with Confluence 5.7 sorry. How long before you anticipate your instance being upgraded to 5.8 or above?

regards, Mark.
