Confluence 3.4.3 Upgrade Notes

Below are some important notes on upgrading to Confluence 3.4.3. For details of the fixes in this release, please read the Confluence 3.4.3 Release Notes.

Upgrade Notes

We have updated the code for the Expand user macro, so that the body of the macro now visible in PDF exports. To take advantage of this improvement, please copy the macro 'template' from this documentation page: Writing the Expand User Macro.

Note that you do not need to upgrade to Confluence 3.4.3 in order to use the updated macro. Simply updating your macro template is enough.

Upgrade Procedure

If you are already running a version of Confluence, please follow these instructions to upgrade to the latest version:

  1. Before you upgrade, we strongly recommend that you back up your Confluence Home directory and database. The Confluence Home directory is the folder where Confluence stores its configuration information, search indexes and page attachments. Another term for 'Home directory' would be 'data directory'. Read more about finding your Home directory.
  2. If your version of Confluence is earlier than 3.4, read the release notes and upgrade guides for all releases between your version and the latest version. In particular:
  3. Download the latest version of Confluence.
  4. Follow the instructions in the Upgrade Guide.

Useful Plugins

Before installing an add-on (also called a plugin) into your Confluence site, please check the add-on's information page to see whether it is supported by Atlassian, by another vendor, or not at all. See our guidelines on add-on support.

  • Appfire's Upgrade Assistant for Confluence (UAC) is a commercial plugin that simplifies the upgrade process into an easy-to-use wizard.
