Is there an API in stash for uploading a plugin via command line?

Does anyone have an example for doing this? It looks like we are going to have several customized plugins, so I'd like to automate the procedure for building and updating them on our production server.

Hi Garret,

Is this what you had in mind?



Hi Charles,

This looks exactly like what I'm looking for. I'm having problems getting it to work though. Here's a snippet. Note that our server is hosted at and we only have HTTPS on port 443 exposed.

$ atlas-install-plugin -e --http-port 443 --context-path / --username pickgr --password ***** --server --plugin-key com.atlassian.stash.stash-enforce-message-hook-plugin

Executing: /opt/atlassian-plugin-sdk/apache-maven/bin/mvn com.atlassian.maven.plugins:maven-amps-dispatcher-plugin:4.1.6:install -e -Dhttp.port='443' -Dcontext.path='/' -Dusername='pickgr' -Dpassword='*****' -Dserver='' -Datlassian.plugin.key='com.atlassian.stash.stash-enforce-message-hook-plugin'

Warning: JAVA_HOME environment variable is not set.

+ Error stacktraces are turned on.

Hi Garret,

I can't be sure, but I wonder whether it's trying to connect via http over 443, rather than actually using https. What happens when you try:

atlas-install-plugin -e --username pickgr --password ***** --server  --plugin-key com.atlassian.stash.stash-enforce-message-hook-plugin--http-port 443 --context-path /

Otherwise this might be relevant.


Thank you Charles! Modifying the server option to use the full URL did the trick.
