UWC getting BAD_SPACE or USER_NOT_PERMITTED

I'm trying to import our current mediawiki to a Atlassian host confluence wiki using UWC.

However, when testing the connection, I get the error:

Testing Connection Settings... FAILURE:
Problem with User setting: BAD_SPACE or USER_NOT_PERMITTED
Either the space does not exist, or the user has no access to that space.

confluenceSettings.properties contents:

current.tab.index=0
space=F6TA2
url=https\://aeronix.onconfluence.com
trustpass=
pages=
uploadOrphanAttachments=false
pageChooserDir=C\:\\Users\\********.AERONIX\\Desktop

trustall=true
attachment.size.max=-1
sendToConfluence=true
pattern=
login=********
truststore=
feedback.option=true
password=*********
wikitype=mediawiki

User referenced in login has permission to create pages in the space specified.

Couple of possibilities:

1. If you haven't set up your ssl support config, you should try that. See UWC SSL Support.

2. Sometimes if your Confluence is protected behind an SSO system, the UWC can't connect because the Remote API isn't hooked into your system. You have some different options in that case. Check out this FAQ: UWC FAQ - Does the UWC Support SSO?

Cheers,

Laura

Laura,

The FAQ, as well as all the UWC Docs, have moved. Do you know where they went?

I'm attempting to login to a Confluence installation that uses SSO, and getting the same error message. I'd like to know what the 'different options' are in that case :)

Regarding SSL Support, I did the "trustall=true" thing.

Regarding SSO - we're hosted by Atlassian - I wouldn't think they would use SSO if it caused these problems, but I don't believe I have control over that.

Ok, If you're hosted by Atlassian, sometimes administrators need to make certain features accessible. I'm pretty certain that people have successfully used the UWC with onconfluence hosted confluences, but I haven't personally managed those, so I don't have particularly specific advice. What I would recommend is opening a ticket with atlassian and I think they should be able to help you make your confluence accessible. Let us know how it goes!

@Laura Kolker

I am still getting error after updating trustall=true.

any comments on this.

 

@Laura Kolker2

 

I have the same problem. What can I do?

Testing Connection Settings... FAILURE:
