Why would searching on the word localhost result in Confluence stating You are already logged in?


I am helping someone with an odd situation - in their instance, if they search on the word localhost, they are presented with a message stating, "You are already logged in." 

I watched someone do this on their instance, but I cannot reproduce this on my Confluence instance.

Hi @Rob Horan ,

that's odd indeed. I can't reproduce this either.

I think we have some kind of search-manipulating customization here, most likely from a search-related app.

Did they reach out to their admin to clarify this? If they are the admin themselves, they should test the behaviour on a stage instance with deactived app(s).

Kind regards,


Hi @Nicolai Sibler ,

This doesn't happen in their test environment either.  It's peculiar.

Hi Rob,

I don't think you and me can solve this from a distance.

It's the admin's job to find out the differences between the instances.

I understand, I was just wondering if anyone had encountered this before, and if so, how they were able to resolve it.
