We have confluence installed, but it does not have a server ID. This is posing a lot of problems with evaluating 3rd party plugins. Please advise.

this should not be possible... Which version of confluence have you installed ? Did you look at the license details in the admin console ?

If there is no server ID, I propose you better ask Atlassian Support

Best regards and good luck finding your ID ;-)


Hi there,

You could fix this by following steps

1. Shutdown confluence

2. Create database backup dump for safety precaution

3. Find the your "Server ID" on your confluence.cfg.xml which is located in <Confluence_HOME_Dir>/confluence.cfg.xml

4. After that find the configured "Server ID" by using this SQL query


5. If the above query return no row double check the content of your BANDANA table


6. If there are any skipping ID, use it in the following SQL query (change the BANDANAID appropriately)

INSERT INTO BANDANA(BANDANAID,BANDANACONTEXT,BANDANAKEY,BANDANAVALUE) VALUES('6','_GLOBAL','confluence.server.id','&lt;string&gt;(ENTER THE SERVER ID FROM confluence.cfg.xml here)&lt;/string&gt;');

7. Double check if the above query is successful

8. Restart Confluence

Please try the above suggestion and let us know how it goes. Hope it helps.
