Plugin error after Confluence upgrade.

After upgrading from 3.5 to 5.1.1, I have 2 plugins that show this error:

Any ideas?


This add-on could not be loaded. It has one or more errors which prevent it from being enabled.

Hi Nashmarkt,

I've seen this before, and it takes manual manipulation of the database to remove. Connect to your database run this query:

select plugindataid, pluginkey from plugindata;

You should see the .tmp add-on in the output under pluginkey. Note the dataid. Then run this query:

delete from plugindata where plugindataid = <id from query 1>;

You'll need to restart Confluence after this.

The add-on should now be removed from the UPM. You can try adding it again via the web or uploading it manually.

Hope this helps!

Hi there,

I believe the problem might be the plugin not compatible with the newer version of Confluence. I suggest to remove and install the newest version of the plugin again (assuming it has a compatible version between Confluence and the plugin itself) to see if this corrects the issue.

I hope this helps!



There is no option to remove it.
