Make sure the Base URL is the same as the URL you're using.

I had the same problem with a freshly installed Confluence 6.0.4 when I tried to apply the license. I started off by using the internal Tomcat webserver on port 8090. I then installed Apache with mod_proxy and was using the, but hadn't updated the Base URL.

The XSRF failure disappeared as soon as I updated the Base URL.

I moved the site to https, after changing the base url the license worked as intended. Thanks for the hint!

Hi Reinhard, 

you could try to temporary diable XSRF Token:

But usually you should be able to update license with a valid session / token. Did you try to log out and log in again? 

Hope this helps. 

Best Regards,
