JIRA Macros Plugin Compatibility with Newer Confluence and Older JIRA

I have a production environment running Confluence 4.3.3 and JIRA 5.1. In Confluence I'm using the JIRA Macros plugin version 4.0.17. The Application Link between the two is working as expected and the JIRA Macro plugin is fully functional.

In a test environment, I am upgrading Confluence from 4.3.3 to 5.5.3. I am leaving JIRA at 5.1.

After the Confluence upgrade, I verified the Applicaiton Link still existed. I was still able to search for JIRA issues and insert them on a page.

The JIRA Macros plugin is now at version 5.5.4 and I am experienicng issues with the following functions:

  • Create New Issue
  • Recently Viewed

When I click on the Recently Viewed option I receive the following error screen in Confluence:

I don't see any errors/warnings in either the Confluence or JIRA logs when this occurs.

Next when I attempt to use the Create New Issue option I receive the following error screen in Confluence:

I see the following error in the JIRA log (/var/atlassian/application-data/jira/log/atlassian-jira.log):

No errors/warnings appear in the Confluence log.

I removed the the Applicaiton Link between the Confluence/JIRA test systems and re-created it again. I am still seeing the same erroneous behavior.

My only theory is that the upgraded version of Confluence along with the updated JIRA Macros plugin are not compatible with the older version of JIRA.

I was wondering if anyone can help me shed light on what the above error logging means and if this truly is a version compatibility problem.

Thank you very much for your help.

I think I found the answer to my own question here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/FoABI

It does look like this is a compatibility problem:

The JIRA version 6.1.3 and below is incompatible with Confluence 5.4 and above.
