Plugin Error while Jira Software 7.4.1 start up

Hello,

 

After every start up of our jira server we get some errors that some, even important plugins, can't be loaded. We get the following error message.

 

 

5 plugins failed to load during JIRA startup.

Did you just upgrade when this started happening?

Well the JIRA Service Desk 3.0.9 won't be able to work with JIRA 7.4.1, that version is incompatible, you will need to update Service Desk plugin in order for it to work with this newer JIRA version.

Most of these errors appear to be plugins failing to startup within the allotted time.   If so then the most common cause for this is that the new JIRA install might have reverted your memory allocation settings.   By default JIRA only ships with an Xmx max value of 768m.  But if you have a large number of issues, or several custom fields, JIRA will need much more memory to be able to run properly and load these plugins.

JIRA Sizing Guide - Atlassian Documentation- to help understand how much resources should be allocated to JIRA

Increasing memory JIRA- For steps on how to increase memory for JIRA

You can also extend the timeout period so JIRA will wait longer for these plugins to load, How to extend the timeout period for plugin loading in JIRA

 

It might also help to stop JIRA, temporarily move all the files out of the JIRAHOME/plugins/installed-plugins/ directory and then start JIRA again.   This will start JIRA without any user plugins at all, but from that point you should then be able to use the UPM within JIRA in order to install updated and compatible plugins for your version from the marketplace site if your JIRA instance has access to the internet.
