Can anyone tell me more about this " plugin.resource.directories.". I want to use this to add javascript to my Jira. And i'm unable to find it and have no idea about what it is.

Hi @Pradeep A,

Have you tried to read through the steps provided in the ScriptRunner Documentation?

In order to set the plugin.resource.directories, you need to open the <JIRA_HOME>/bin/ or <JIRA_HOME>/bin/setenv.bat file depending on your OS and add the parameters to the JVM_REQUIRED_ARGS section.

Below is an example of the parameter:-

JVM_REQUIRED_ARGS='-Dplugin.resource.directories=/opt/atlassian/application-data/jira/javascripts -Djava.awt.headless=true -Datlassian.standalone=JIRA -Dorg.apache.jasper.runtime.BodyContentImpl.LIMIT_BUFFER=true -Dmail.mime.decodeparameters=true -Dorg.dom4j.factory=com.atlassian.core.xml.I nterningDocumentFactory'

You also need to ensure that the javascript folder is created in the path which you are specifying in the setenv file.

Make sure that your Jira instance is down when you modify the file. You will then need to execute the setenv file and restart your Jira instance for the change to take effect.

I hope this helps to solve your question. :)

Thank you and Kind Regards,
