The 'Modification' section of the Confluence 'System Information' screen lists the files that have been changed since your Confluence application was installed. You will find this information particularly useful when upgrading Confluence to a new version, because you will need to re-apply all customizations after the upgrade.

To see the modifications made to files in your Confluence installation:

  1. Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration
  2. Select 'System Information' in the 'Administration' section of the left-hand panel.
  3. Scroll down to the section titled 'Modification'.

  • The modification tracker does not detect changes to class files from the confluence.jar or other JAR files. If you modify classes, the Confluence modification detection does not report the modification.
