Creation of Event Listener plugin in JIRA 7+


Generally I find it hard to create plugins from scratch using the SDK since the example documentation is outdated.

Is there any simple full examples that can be used?

Recently I have tried to create an event listener from scratch using JIRA 7+ and spring. There is some tips around but often something is missing.

Can anyone point me to some good examples on how to create an event listener for JIRA 7+?

Hi Michael,

From some time ago i'm doing all the listener as a Script Listeners using groovy, it's more flexible for me.

Here's an article of the last Jira API for making event listener but i neved had to use it, it's for Jira 5+:

Maybe it helps you
