How to install a version 1 task plugin in Bamboo 3.2

I wrote a simple task plugin for Bamboo 3.2 and I'd like to install it on our production server. I tried using the Universal Plugin Manager (as described in the documentation) but I get the message:

The plugin PerforceTasks-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar is a version 1 plugin. Version 1 plugins cannot be dynamically installed. For more information on installing version 1 plugins see the UPM documentation.

So I would like to manually install it, but I cannot find any documentation on how to do so. What steps do I need to take to install the plugin?

On Windows:

  1. Copy the jar
    • Version 1: %ProgramFiles%\Bamboo\webapp\WEB-INF\lib
    • Version 2: bamboo-home\plugins
  2. Restart the Bamboo service.
  3. Enable the plugin in the Plugin Manager

The link that you provided tells you were to put the files.

FWIW the UPM documentation does not make any mention of Bamboo, only Jira and Confluence.

Try the plugins/ directory in your Bamboo home.

This is only applicable to Version 2 plugins.
