How do you enable Development Mode using JIRA server

When I go to manage add-ons, click the settings link, I believe i should see a way to enable development mode per the directions here:


However, for my server instance of JIRA, the settings dialog shows this, with no way to turn on development mode. How can I turn on development mode?

This developer mode is for Cloud, not Server.

Does that mean the only way to run a cloud based plugin would be to run it though Atlassian Connect Express in a JIRA standalone development environment (atlas-run-standalone)?

No, you can run it on a Cloud development service as well - as explained in the doc you linked to.  But that's not a server edition of JIRA, it's a Cloud install.
