addon-org.andya.confluence.plugins.metadata v2.16

I'm moving my CFL 3.5.17 from a Mac to Linux box with the intention to move to the latest CFL in the short-medium term. I've only one plugin - metadata. I couldn't get the "copy confluence data dir" across and was happy to just do a backup and restore from old to new. And then setup that one plugin.

However that one plugin was not found. lists all versions though everything from 2.1.6 down (or most of them) don't exist any more. I need ver 2.1.6.

Would anyone know where I can get a copy of version 2.1.6?

If you still have access to the old machine's disk, you can just find and copy the .jar file for the add-on.  It should have a recognisable name, usually with the version number in it.

Hi Nic,

I found:



Its under plugin-cache - does that seem right to you?  The jar contents seem correct - org/andya/confluence/utils for example.

How would I go about installing this?  Given the wacky name!

You can just grab a copy of that and use "upload addon" from the UPM.

I would strongly recommend renaming it though, to just metadata-2.1.6.jar before upload, or it'll end up with a really stupidly long name on the file system

Thanks Nic, that worked a treat.  All seems to be working!



Hello Brooke,

first i would suggest you to go trough this guide: Migrating Confluence Between Servers

This will keep all you settings and data.

Another way is to ask the vendor for the old version:


Hi Tim, the version is too old I suspect, and the migration didn't work.  Next best thing was to dump on old and restore on new.  Then fix up the one plugin!

Hi Brooke,

Were you able to get the add-on installed?  If not, email support[at] and we can provide the jar file.


Thanks for your help Miguel.  Nic Brough's suggestions worked and I could find the jar.  Onwards and upwards now!
