CSS resource not being included in Stash web-item plugin module

I've got the following Stash plugin module definition:

<web-item key="header" name="My Header" weight="40" section="header.global.secondary">



<resource type="download" name="total.css" location="css/total.css"/>

<condition class="com.atlassian.stash.web.conditions.IsLoggedInCondition"/>

<context-provider class="plugin.contextproviders.TotalContextProvider"/>

<label>$total dollars</label>


However, when I start up Stash (atlas-run) the styling I've included in total.css (making the background-color red) isn't being applied. I can't see the total.css file included anywhere when I use Chrome Dev Tools to try and find it, and the style applies fine if I manually edit the css in Chrome Dev Tools.

Any idea why the style isn't being applied and why I can't see the CSS being downloaded/included anywhere?

Hi Annie,

I'm afraid to say that it appears that web-items don't support download resources. You'll have to add the resource another way. You could do that with with an extra web-resource (or stash-resource) with a context (like global or atl.general).



Awesome, I added a web-resource with atl.general context and it works as I want it to :) Thanks!

Hi Annie,

Using atl.general is not recommended, as it adds your resources to every page in Stash. Unless you actually need to target every page, please take a look at https://developer.atlassian.com/stash/docs/latest/reference/web-resource-contexts.html for a more appropriate context (nb: atl.general does not hit admin pages)

Hey Seb, thanks for the advice. I do actually need it to display on every page - so I guess I should apply it to the atl.general *and* atl.admin.

Hi Annie,

Adding both contexts to your resource is correct then.
