Javascript not loading in Jira 7

Hello,

I have a new .js file in src/main/resources/js/.

atlassian-plugin.xml:

<resource type="download" name="charts.js" location="/js/charts.js"/>

....

<context>myPlugin</context>
<context>atl.general</context>
<context>atl.admin</context>

 

The javascript file is not showing up in the 'Page Source' of my plugin (when I view the source in the browser) under the scripts section.

Oddly, this is working for another plugin of mine.

What is wrong? Anyone know?

Hi, 

It could be possible that your js-file is included in batch.js with appropriate module-key and location e.g. 

/* module-key = 'atlassian.plugin.key:web-resource.key', location = '/js/charts.js' */

The resources, defined under a web resource module, are loaded in a single batch to reduce the number of HTTP requests from the browser. To turn it off add a param element as follows:

<resource type="download" name="charts.js" location="/js/charts.js">
    <param name="batch" value="false"/>
</resource>

Hi @Aleksandr Zuevich,

Yes, you are correct that, it was included.

An older plugin of mine included the javascript file in the source itself. Probably how things were done back in the day. Jira 7 does things a bit differently.

 

Thanks for the response.
