Where have you placed the class exactly?  jira-home/???/???/??? etc?

/opt/atlassian/jira/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/com/icg

it was working fine before jira upgrade 6.2

Ok, which version of the script runner are you using now? If you've moved from 2.something to 3.something, then the script location handling has changed and you'll need to handle that.

i was on 2.1.17 and moved to 3.0.6 how do i handle it?

Do i need to update setenv.sh with below set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Dplugin.script.roots=//pt/atlassian/jira/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/com/icg

Hei, well you could copy the class into <jira-home>/scripts/com/icg/ then the class would be accessible from a custom listener as "com.icg.<className>" (please notice the missing '.groovy' extension)

Thanks Jamie, that's where I was headed when I asked about the versions!

Thank you guys. I was able to add those files successfully yesterday however today, when I tried to 'update' listener under 'script listners', it is throwing below error Problem loading class: org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed: /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/scripts/com/icg/UpdateSummary.groovy: 9: Invalid duplicate class definition of class UpdateSummary : The sources /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/scripts/com/icg/UpdateSummary.groovy and file:/var/atlassian/application-data/jira/scripts/com/icg/UpdateSummary.groovy each contain a class with the name UpdateSummary. @ line 9, column 1. class UpdateSummary extends AbstractIssueEventListener { ^ 1 error

I marked Nic's answer as correct as you've cross-posted this last question.
