Project build error - Failure to find com.atlassian.core:atlassian-core



I am trying to create my own plugin for 7.0.10 JIRA version but eclipse returns me error about dependency.

I created pom.xml, then I execute "atlas-mvn eclipse:eclipse" in eclipse ('BUILD SUCCESS'), then I click on myProject ->Maven -> Update Project. As a result I get following error:

Project build error: Unresolveable build extension: Plugin com.atlassian.maven.plugins:maven-jira-plugin:5.0.18 or one of its dependencies could not be resolved: The following artifacts could not be resolved: com.atlassian.core:atlassian-core:jar:4.0, biz.aQute:bndlib:jar:1.43.0-atlassian-1, com.atlassian.fugue:fugue:jar:1.0, com.dmurph:JGoogleAnalyticsTracker:jar:1.2.1-atlassian,, com.atlassian.plugins:atlassian-plugins-osgi-testrunner:jar:1.2.3: Failure to find com.atlassian.core:atlassian-core:jar:4.0 in was cached in the local repository, resolution will not be reattempted until the update interval of central has elapsed or updates are forced

I found atlassian-core-4.0.jar here , but error message shows that it was tried to found file in


Could you help me to understand what is incorrect?



My pom.xml is

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<project xmlns=""



        <!-- Add dependency on jira-core if you want access to JIRA implementation classes as well as the sanctioned API. -->
        <!-- This is not normally recommended, but may be required eg when migrating a plugin originally developed against JIRA 4.x -->





Thank you in advance,

Short: you need some jars to build a plugin. 

Maven is tring to get this jar. Since it could not find on local machine and is tring to download it from internet.

Usually it fails because proxy settings. Contact with you system administrators to make sure that for you is allowed to download jars.

Hello Vasily


Thank you for reply.

That's right, I didn't configured proxy in atlas maven settings.xml

But I see that these jars (atlassian-core-4.0, bndlib-1.43.0-atlassian-1, etc) were downloaded and already exist in my local repository C:\Users\<username>\.m2\repository.

Also I specified local repository in settings.xml: <localRepository>C:\Users\<username>\.m2\repository</localRepository>, however problem still exist.


Does this problem still related to proxy? I assume, that there is something wrong with pom.xml dependencies or/and links to local repository....




Were these jar downloaded manually or by Maven? There is some structure for repository: group id / artifact id / version / jar? Or it just placed into C:\Users\<username>\.m2\repository?

I didn't download them manually, so it seems these jars were downloaded by maven.

Yes, there is structure with folders, e.g. atlassian-core-4.0.jar exists in C:\Users\<username>\.m2\repository\com\atlassian\core\atlassian-core\4.0



Atlassian core is not nessary to build plugin. Just comment this dependency.

Also try to execute clean step and that package. Sometimes is helps.
