Installation of Service Desk fails on JIRA Software 7.6.1 Edited

At "System" -> "Applications" I tried to install the JIRA Service Desk Application. But it failed.


An unexpected error occurred. Refer to the logs for more information.

Hi Alexander! 

As a short term attempt to fix it, you could try clearing the add-on cache.

  • Stop JIRA
  • Go to <JIRA installation>/work
  • Move the files in that directory to a backup directory somewhere outside the installation (your home directory is a good one).  Do NOT delete the directory itself, only the content.
  • Go to <JIRA data>/plugins
  • remove the .osgi-plugins and .bundled-plugins directories to somewhere safe (your home again?)
  • Start JIRA and monitor the logs for errors

thanks for the suggestion. Just as additional information.

I had the problem already last week. So I did a new attempt yesterday.

I did a new installation of JIRA Software 7.6.0 (installer on Linux CentOS) and imported a backup of the database (and restored attachments, logos, avatars).

After that i did a upgrade to JIRA Software 7.6.1.

-> Then I used the Button at "System" -> "Applications" and tried to install the Service Desk application. 

Then the same problem occured.
