Jira startup failed - plugins not started


After a server reboot, JIRA won't start anymore. I get the following message:

  • Atlassian JIRA - Plugins - Quick Edit Plugin (com.atlassian.jira.jira-quick-edit-plugin)

This error usually occurs when your plugin imports a package from another bundle with a specific version constraint and either the bundle providing that package doesn't meet those version constraints, or there is no bundle available that provides the specified package.

I have already tried all the hints in but with no luck.


Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Hey Benoit,

Please try these steps

  1. Stop JIRA Service


Browse through JIRA Data Directory (C:\Program Files\Atlassian\Application Data\JIRA\plugins)
Make sure you enable to see hidden folders as .osgi-plugins and .bundled plugins will be there as hidden


If its a Linux environment, you can do

ls -al /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/plugins
rm -r .osgi-plugins
rm -r .bundled-plugins


3. Remove / Archive Old Application log files


mv /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/log/atlassian-jira.log /home/jira




This is to make sure you get a fresh and new log after starting JIRA.


4. Start JIRA Service.


You can also foreground JIRA Service to see what exactly is the error monitoring catalina.out




cd /opt/atlassian/jira/bin
./ -fg
For Windows
use Command Prompt 
cd <JIRA Install Directory>\bin
start-jira.bat /fg




Once you get info on logs, if it was run as foreground process, stop JIRA , fix the issue or post the log file here so we can better troubleshoot and later you can start JIRA Service (background)





Thanks for your answer.

I had already tried this but with no success.


I've just installed the last JIRA software version (7.3.2) - I was previously using 7.1.8 - and it fixed my issue !


Hello Beoit, 

Have you fix it?

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 ...
