Support policy for Server

  • License must have a non-expired maintenance window.
  • App version must be used with compatible host server version as indicated in the Marketplace listing.
  • The latest app version compatible with the host server version is supported. You will be asked to upgrade to the latest app level for problem determination and fixes in most cases.
  • General rule is to support at least host server versions released within the past year. Limited support may be available for earlier versions up to their end of life (EOL) following Atlassian Support End of Life Policy
  • A version, in our terminology, means a release indicated by x.y (like 4.1). Minor/maintenance versions (like 4.1.1) are not counted.

Support policy for Cloud

  • Cloud instances are automatically updated unless our app requires authorization for additional permissions in which case the update is delayed until an administrator approves.

Compatibility by release

Confluence 4.3 Templates

Confluence 4.3 introduced an incompatibility by changing templates (global and space) to use the new editor and storage format instead of the previous wiki markup. A number of macros listed here provided a capability to bring in source (normally plain text or wiki markup) from templates. The capability to do this is for more advanced users like Confluence administrators (for global templates) and space administrators (for space templates). If this capability is being used on your site, beware of upgrading to Confluence 4.3 or later. Recent versions of plugins will provide mitigations for this usage but templates will at least need to be minimally changed to revert to existing behavior (sad). Alternatives like using attachments instead of templates will also resolve the problem.

Examples:

  1. SQL-165 Getting issue details... STATUS
  2. SCRP-126 Getting issue details... STATUS

See How to deal with templates on Confluence 4.3 and later.
