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 customisations after the upgrade.


(warning) The information on this page does not apply to Confluence Cloud.

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

  1. Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration
  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. See issue CONF-20993.
