how to disable admin password prompt in confluence

In Jira, adding = true

to the JIRA_HOME/jira-config.propertis 

I attempted to add = true


But, it didn't work.  Can't find the documentation by searching Answers or Confluence...sorry.

If you know how, let me know!

If you don't mind doing it through the web admin:

  • Go to Confluence Administration,
  • Go to Security Configuration
  • Untick "Secure administrator sessions"

I found a file: confluence.cfg.xml I added the entry: <properties> . . . . <property name="">true</property> </properties> I added it but it was removed when confluence started. I guess it's not recognized.

Hi James,

Just in addition to Adrien's answer which is correct, we've got a documentation that covers this procedure so you can find further details about it:


I hope it helps


Hey...thanks. I just wish the computer knew what I was talking about when I asked it the question. I obviously didn't ask the right question. Thanks all.
