Hello @JK 


There is no need to change the tomcat web.xml file for a Jira plugin.

This is configured in the plugin.xml


Your web item xml may look like this. All it contains is a link in the UI, admin panel etc.

The link element has a url in there that will be invoked when it is clicked

<web-item key="${atlassian.plugin.key}-EventListenerMenuItem"
name="Admin Menu : Event Listener Configuration Menu Link"
<description>Event Listener Configuration</description>
<label key="el.admin.label" />
<link linkId="${atlassian.plugin.key}-EventListenerAdminLink">


An additional element to listen for the request.

<!-- Configuration Servlet -->

<servlet key="${atlassian.plugin.key}-EventListenerAdminConfig"
name="Event Listener : Configuration"


The class referenced in the servlet element

public class EventListenerAdmin extends HttpServlet {
@ @Override
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
throws IOException, ServletException {
