Manage Plugins is missing from Admin page

I am running version 3.4.9 of confluence and seem to have lost the "Plugins" link under the Administration menu.

Our wiki runs fine and gets a lot of use. I haven't had to visit the admin page for quite a while but I need to check on some upgrades for some of the many plugins that we run and now I cannot find how to do that. I'm sure it was there before :-) I do seem to recall there was some issue with this many months ago but I cannot remember the details.

Anyone able to help me find out where it has gone? I cannot find any errors in the server log either. In case it is relevant, this is a small standalone installation with a mysql database.

I restarted the confluence process and the plugin management link returned.

It looks a little difficult for me ........

Hallo Brian

Perhaps you only have "Confluence administrator" rights instead of "system administrator" rights? A Confluence administrator can see the Administration menu, but will not see all options in the menu. This documentation page describes the differences between a Confluence administrator and a system administrator.

I hope that solves the mystery.

Cheers, Sarah
