JIRA Bamboo Plugin can't be enabled

I'm running Bamboo 4.4.5 and JIRA 5.2.10.

When I try to enable JIRA Bamboo Plugin 5.1.6, Bamboo throws the following exception. The link in the error message links to a nonexisting Confluence page.

I would appreciate any ideas how to resolve this issue.

This error usually occurs when your plugin imports a package from another bundle with a specific version constraint and either the bundle providing that package doesn't meet those version constraints, or there is no bundle available that provides the specified package.

The JIRA Bamboo plugin is actually not a Bamboo plugin but a plugin that should be present in JIRA only. The plugin is shipped in to JIRA by default. You can therefore remove this plugin from Bamboo altogether. In other to that, try the following:

# Shutdown Bamboo

# Remove the plugin jar from the {{$BAMBOO_HOME/plugins}} directory

# Restart Bamboo

This should fix the issue and Bamboo should be working seamlessly with JIRA.



Thanks, this of course fixed the problem. :)

same here. Wonder how the jar got in there tough... Upgrading from 4.4.5 to 5.3...
