What node is a user on?

How can I find out what node a user is on?

Since I have privs, I can go to Confluence Administration and the node is listed at the bottom of the page. What about for a normal user that can't get into Administration?

Hi @Jeff Shepherd

You can use the system property to set the node identifier on each node so that it's easier for your users and administrators to read.

See Configuring System Properties for more information on how to set the system property.

For more details, please find the similar question here,


I have already set that property. In fact, I have set it so it automatically sets it with the $HOSTNAME variable.



However, even though this sets the node name, that name is only displayed at the bottom of pages in Confluence Administration, not in normal user spaces.
