  • Upgrading Adaptavist ScriptRunner for Confluence from version 4.x to 5.x.
  • Page Info for ScriptRunner Confluence is also installed


There is a library mis-match between the old and new versions of the library Adaptavist ScriptRunner for Confluence.


Please backup your database and home directory before making these changes.

These changes will not delete the data with the Add-ons.

  1. Shutdown Confluence
  2. Run this SQL to delete the Add-Ons directly from the database. If you don't have Page Info for ScriptRunner Confluence then the second line isn't required.

    delete from plugindata where pluginkey = 'com.onresolve.confluence.groovy.groovyrunner';
    delete from plugindata where pluginkey = 'com.adaptavist.confluence.pageinfo';
  3. Clear the plugin cache, see
  4. Restart Confluence
