Jira plugin development in cloud

Here I'm trying to upload a plugin to JIRA cloud

Goal is: if any events are created or resolved or it may be JIRA release, my json should receive that and trigger the mail to the users.

I created json and xml file as in tutorials:https://developer.atlassian.com/static/connect/docs/latest/guides/migrating-from-xml-to-json-descriptor.html


"name": "PlugIn",
"description": "Atlassian Connect add-on",
"key": "plug-in1",
"baseUrl": "https://3a48dc0a.ngrok.io",
"vendor": {
"name": "My Organization, Inc",
"url": "https://developer.atlassian.com"
"authentication": {
"type": "none"
"apiVersion": 1,
"modules": {
"webhooks": [
"event": "jira:issue_created",
"url": "/issue-created"
"event": "jira:issue_updated",
"url": "/issue-updated"



<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<atlassian-plugin key="plug-in1" name="PlugIn" plugins-version="2">
<description>Atlassian Connect add-on</description>
<vendor name="My Organization, Inc" url="https://developer.atlassian.com" />
<remote-plugin-container key="container" display-url="http://localhost:8000">

The url which i get after running ngrok, i'm uploading it to JIRA in manage add-on's, but i'm getting the error while uploading:

//The add-on descriptor failed to validate against the schema. Please confirm this add-on is intended for use with JIRA and then contact the add-on vendor.

The error message as you pasted it includes extra whitespace.  Maybe you accidentally included it in your descriptor without realizing it and the value isn't trimmed?

/baseUrl: string " https://3a48dc0a.ngrok.io" is not a valid URI//
                  ^--- extra space in the string?

Yep i did it, but error is same

I need to clarify the approach is in right way??

I'm not an expert on Connect, so I'm not sure whether there are any other problems with the descriptor or not.

What I can tell you is that the specific error that's being reported comes from json-schema-validator and the reason it gets generated is only ever that Java itself says there is something wrong with the URI, as you can see in its URIAttribute.java source.

I suggest that you remove the baseUrl attribute from the descriptor and carefully type it back it, because the error message is definitely telling you that this is the problem.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
