we experience a strange behaviour about the default task plugin of confluence with the following symptoms in the task section of the profile:

  • Almost every tasks is showed twice or thrice or even more often
  • When clicking on the checkbox of one task nothing happens, no error message is shown, and the task is still unchecked on reload

Did anyone else ever experience such a behaviour? Does anyone have a solution?

maybe you're running into this problem? https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/dIA5JQ


Yep, we had the same problem. I have deleted all the pages with a task on it, which are signed to me. But they still showed up in my taskbar. After a confluence update they disapeared.


Thank you @Tim Eddelbuettel, JD, an update to 5.8 is already planed, we will revalidate the error after that update
