We are developing an Atlassian Confluence plugin (starting with RefApp, because it is a lighter app to develop on) using the Atlassian REST API plugin module (atlas-create-refapp-plugin-module, option 7 or atlas-create-confluence-plugin-module, option 9). (The front-end is Angular, so we are relying on the Rest API for the whole app.)

I need to customize the Jackson ObjectMapper. Here are two related Atlassian Community posts that are unanswered/only partially answered:

Just add Jackson as dependency and use it directly.

(Please note: don't let Bandana serialize your objects, use your own mapper then. Avoids many problems…)


<!-- Jackson 2.15.0 may break with older Java -> test again, when with > 2.15.0 -->


ObjectMapper objectMapper = new ObjectMapper();

@David Maye did you ever figure out how to do this?

It is just amazing how all the nitty-gritty questions are left unanswered.

I just consume the raw JSON string in my method and call my own object mapper.
