List of user installed plugins

Is there any command/script the will list all user installed plugins on a Confluence instance?

Thank you.

You can also write a script to parse the output of the UPM REST API:

curl $BASE_URL/rest/plugins/1.0/

will give you all plugins that are installed. You can filter which ones were user installed by the userInstalled key, e.g. with jq

curl $BASE_URL/rest/plugins/1.0/ | jq ".plugins | map(select(.userInstalled))"


N.B.: this does not only work with Confluence, but should work with JIRA and Stash (probably also Fisheye/Crucible) as well.

If you do not administrative permissions and the feature is not disabled, you can also retrieve a list of plugins via the 500page:


Yes, but Atlassian turned off the plugins listing on that public instance ;-)

how do i enable the listing so that the 500page.jsp works? thanks

The setting is located on the security configuration page (checkbox with 500 in the description ;-))

is it 4.4 specific setting? - I do not see it in my 4.3

Um, talking about Confluence here :-) But the 500page.jsp also exists in JIRA. AFAIK the additional information cannot be disabled there so you should see the plugins list...

There's no script that I'm aware of, but you can simply browse to Confluence Admin | Plugins to see which plugins are user installed.

if you also need to see how the macro are used on your confluence environment you can install the Macro Usage Stats plugin from Comalatech

or Macro Usage from Atlassian

Macro Usage Stats plugin v1.0 is however not stable currently and it works only for Confluence 3.5.x.

If looking at specific usage, you can also use the Confluence search to do it without any plugins (pre-4.0, at least).

Sarah Maddox's blog post covers how to do it pre-4.0.
