Jira Calendar Plugin displays 'INCOMPATIBLE' via the Manage add-ons

Hi Support,

I placed the 'jira-calendar-plugin-4.0.3.jar' into the  'D:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA\plugins\installed-plugins' directory on our QA JIRA server.

JIRA Version is 6.3.1

Is this a compatible version?


Also, how do access the calendar, how do you get there?

You should not be installing plugins like that on that version of JIRA.  Use the UPM properly - it won't let you install invalid versions.  If you can't use the UPM connection to the marketplace (firewall prevents external access is the usual reason), then use the "upload add-on" function in the UPM and select the correct version from the list of versions on the marketplace entry.

In this case, a glance at https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.jira.ext.calendar/versions will tell you exactly what's wrong.

Hi Nic,

I'm a little new with this forum but and with JIRA Plugins, but how do you install properly? What is UPM?

Thanks for the compatible version.


Ah, I see.  I'd assumed a long partial familiarity with JIRA because you were installing add-ons using an old deprecated method.  Sorry!

The UPM is the "universal plugin manager" - it's an add-on distributed as part of most Atlassian applications and it adds some links to the admin section of all of them.  The main things it adds are "search for new add-ons" and "manage add-ons", and then all the screens behind them.  It does what it sounds like it does - provides the management of add-ons within the applications.

From JIRA 5 onwards, you should use it for almost all add-on installation and management.  There are a couple that it can't handle, but even those it will tell you about!
