I just upgraded Jira from v4.2.2 to v4.4.3 and for the life of me I can't find the Universal Plugin Manager. All the docs tell me to go to 'Administration' > 'Plugins' > 'Plugins' and I'll see the UPM, but I have no such option with 4.4.3. Instead, Administration has a "Plugins" dropdown that allows me to select which plugin I want to configure. There is no option for starting the UPM so I can configure existing plugins or install more.
I've already verified that I have Jira Administrator permissions, I've upgraded the UPM from v1.4.1 to v1.6.2, I've removed any cached versions of v1.4.1 in the various subdirectories of JIRA_HOME (plugins, .osgi_plugins, .bundled_plugins), and restarted Jira several times.
There are two very odd things afoot:
Has anyone else run into this?
delete from propertystring where id = (select id from propertyentry where property_key='jira.plugin.state-.com.atlassian.upm.atlassian-universal-plugin-manager-plugin'); delete from propertyentry where property_key='jira.plugin.state-.com.atlassian.upm.atlassian-universal-plugin-manager-plugin';
When you have upgraded jira to version 4.4.3, the UPM should normally be upgraded automatically as well.
Reacting on point 1:
All plugins bundled with jira are automatically extracted from the bundled-plugins.zip that is shipped with jira. Whenever a plugin is removed from the plugin cache in JIRA_HOME it is automatically extracted again from this zip file.
You can try to remove all occurrences of UPM from the plugin cache in JIRA_HOME and then restart Jira. Jira should now start up with the bundled version of UPM. Once it is started you can upgrade the UPM through the UPM itself. It will require a restart though.
Hopefully this will help.
