If you are looking to automate Confluence deployments, you may also like to include third-party apps that are used extensively by users. This article explains steps on how to automate plugin installation in Confluence.
- Grab the .jar files of the plugins in concern from their Atlassian Marketplace page
- If they are in .obr format, convert it to a zip file and extract the jar file from inside this folder.
- Copy the jar file and paste it in
- Restart Confluence
These plugins will be installed as system plugins. You can disable the plugin from the UI, but cannot uninstall it. If you need to uninstall it in the future, the .jar file needs to be removed from the
atlassian-bundled-plugins folder followed by Clearing the plugins cache.
