Put upm-1.2.jar in crowd.home/plugins directory and then restart Crowd.

(You configured crowd.home in crowd-webapp/WEB-INF/classes/ when installing Crowd)

Once you restart Crowd, you will see the UPM plugin in the admin menu:


Is it supposed to recognise and work with a 'custom directory connector' add-on? It doesn't...

A custom directory connector is not an add-on. Jar files for custom directory connectors have to be placed in crowd-webapp/WEB-INF/lib as detailed here

Hi @Nikolaus Madalinski you cannot install plugins in Crowd as you can in Jira or Confluence.

The plugin you want to install adds this functionality, but is a too simple and not intuitive in my opinion. This is why we developped our own plugin, bringing the same feeling as Jira's UPM to Crowd.

You can try it, just download the trial version here :
