Hi there!

Have you seen this article, that will tell you how to resolve this issue?

It appears to cover the exact issue you're experiencing.

Can you give that a try and let us know how it goes?

Kind regards,

Shannon

i am having a similar problem.  

SELECT * FROM cwd_app_dir_mapping;

produced zero rows.  

 

UPDATE cwd_app_dir_mapping
SET LIST_INDEX=0
WHERE ID=<first_id>;

0 rows updated.

Sandi,

There should definitely be something in that table because it would display at least the default Confluence user directory.

  1. Could you try the statement using upper case instead and see if you're able to find it that way?
  2. Is this when you're logging into the instance? 
  3. What do you have in your User Directories setup?
  4. The 2nd query didn't work because you have <first_id> from the example in your SQL query. Once you return results to the 1st query, you can proceed with the 2nd query, filling in the ID that is returned from the first.

Regards,

Shannon

HI - I'm on Confluence 6.0.3 and I ran into this issue after a failed backup import. 

cwd_app_dir_mapping

 as well as other tables (cwd_application, cwd_user) are empty. I can't even perform a password reset!

Re-installing confluence does not work. I don't know what to try next.

Hi Shannon,

I am also facing the same issue while importing the cloud backup to server,

caused by: org.apache.velocity.exception.MethodInvocationException: Invocation of method 'isShowSignUp' in class com.atlassian.confluence.user.actions.LoginAction threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException: Application cannot be null at /login.vm[line 6, column 28]

caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException: Application cannot be null
at com.google.common.base.Preconditions.checkNotNull(Preconditions.java:895)

I have tried using above article but luck showing no rows affected.

Any support will be appreciated.

Thanks.
