Recently viewed content is always empty

For at least two days now the recently viewed content option on the Edit Link-dialog returns "You have no recently viewed content."

I am the only user. Is there something I can do myself (in admin role) to try and fix this?

Hello Pascal,

Could you please share a screenshot? I'm not sure to understand where this error message comes from. Is it on this window?

Hi Manon,

The page you're referring to in your screenshot does show a history of recently visited pages (as it should)


However the option to insert a link to a recently viewed page while in edit mode is broken since a few days now, which is extremely frustrating because it breaks my workflow

Please vote for the issue in the Atlassian JIRA: who knows it might speed-up things. thanks

After 4 months this has not been fixed

Support is unable to urge the dev-team to provide us with feedback

(ticket = JST-446250 What is the roadmap for CONFCLOUD-65264 ?)


This is so frustrating.. :( 

Still broken
