While trying to configure user repository from the user directory, any changes resulted in 500 error page

The following appears in the atlassian-confluence.log

Caused by: org.springframework.beans.FatalBeanException: Could not copy properties from source to target; nested exception is java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException
	at org.springframework.beans.BeanUtils.copyProperties(
Caused by: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException
Caused by: java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "636/"



  • The string For input string: "636/" looks like  a port number
  • Check what is the URL of the LDAP if it contains a backlash:

    ldap.url: ldaps://


The backlash in the URL caused this problem.


In your database, run the following query:

select, d.directory_name, m.list_index from cwd_directory d join cwd_app_dir_mapping m on;

Take note of the id of the problematic directory, and insert it to the following code and run it in your database:

UPDATE cwd_directory_attribute
SET attribute_value = 'ldap://' <without the backlash>
WHERE directory_id = <directory ID obtained form the previous query>
AND attribute_name = 'ldap.url'

データベースの変更を行う場合は必ず事前にバックアップを取得してください。可能な場合は、まずステージング サーバーで SQL コマンドの変更、挿入、更新、または削除を行うようにします。

Check if the codes above was run successfully by running the following code:

SELECT * FROM cwd_directory_attribute WHERE directory_id = <directory id> AND attribute_name = 'ldap.url';

flush your cache (By going to Confluence Admin > Cache Management > Flush All) and see if this setting works
