Why am I getting an error message that says "We can't create that blueprint right now"

Hi,

If I try to create the Jira Report Change Log Report I'm getting the error "We can't create that blueprint right now". This happens since I updated Jira and Confluence to:

  • Jira 7.6.0
  • Confluence 6.5.0

Following the stack trace from the 500 server error response.

Hi Sascha,

I took a look at the stack trace you're seeing and there is a Confluence bug that I believe matches this behavior at CONFSERVER-54310. Take a look at CONFSERVER-54310 and review the steps to reproduce.  If that is an adequate description of what you're able to reproduce please follow the suggested workaround, vote on the issue and add any relevant comments to the ticket for the developers.

The suggested workaround is as follows:

"switch to advanced" prior to hitting "create" works for some users

If that is not what you're experiencing let me know and we'll go from there.

Cheers,

Branden

Hi Brandon,

It seems it is related to the bug you mentioned. The workaround works just fine for me.

Thanks a lot!

Bests,

Sascha
