Yep. After that just run atlas-package to check for compile errors. In none will bw found, you can check if your plugin work correctly.

Another option to set Jira version is via parameter:

atlas-debug --version 4.4

Thats compile, im waiting download the jira 4.4.4 version, I notice that such!

Works! I replaced some classes news in jira 5, thanks!

As far, as I know, API for plugins changed drammatically from 4 to 5 version. You can set Jira version in your pom.xml


and check, whether it works fine. If not, you can fix errors, that arise.

Hope, it helped.

Also, you can be interested in developers docs for migrating from 4 to 5





This is my pom.xml, Do you suggest is to replace the jira version of 4 and test if it works?

check your plugin on you will come know what is causing this .
