Did you read https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/latest/jira/creating-a-script-plugin.html ? Warning though: that documentation needs some work, I don't know if it will work as written. But that's where you should be looking.

The other alternative is to make sure your "scripts" directory is a git repo, then you can just checkout the latest version or a floating label when you want to deploy changes.

I've read this article but it doesn't answer the question - how groovy runner will identify scripts that are in the plugin? I created simple Atlassian plugin with groovy "hello world" script, wrote groovy-runner dependencies, specified "plugin.script.roots" in pom.xml and as far as i understand, script should be transferred to this root on jira-server and script runner will execute it. But it doesn't happen. Please, correct me if i wrong,

It's not copied anywhere, but you should be able to run it from script console using the relative path from the jar root.

On the "files" tab, you should see eg plugin://My Awesome Plugin as well as the usual roots.

Found it, thanks a lot!
