Dependency Injection in Jira Plugin is Failing

Hi Atlassian Team,

Good Afternoon.

I have developed a custom Rest API plugin using Atlassian SDK. I was able to execute Hellow World Rest Plugin. But I am getting 404 error if I inject the following JIRA API Classes to my Rest Class.

a) com.seic.ims.jira.plugins.components.IssueServiceImpl


c) com.atlassian.sal.api.user.UserManager

HTTP Error Response:

HTTP Status 404 - NoOpServlet received an unexpected request. More information is available in the log file.

Please find my current JIRA properties in POM xml below.

<!-- This key is used to keep the consistency between the key in atlassian-plugin.xml and the key to generate bundle. -->

I have configured these dependencies as like below.



<component-import key="projectService" interface="com.atlassian.jira.bc.project.ProjectService" filter=""/>
<component-import key="issueService" interface="com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.IssueService" filter=""/>
<component-import key="searchService" interface="" filter=""/>
<component-import key="userManager" interface="com.atlassian.sal.api.user.UserManager" filter=""/>


My Rest Resource Class:

public class JiraIssueRest {
private static Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(JiraIssueRest.class);

private IssueService issueService;
private ProjectService projectService;
private SearchService searchService;
private UserManager userManager;

public JiraIssueRest() {


public JiraIssueRest(IssueService issueService,ProjectService projectService,SearchService searchService,UserManager userManager){
this.issueService = issueService;
this.projectService = projectService;
this.searchService = searchService;
this.userManager = userManager;

public Response getMessage()
logger.debug("Entering getMessage()");
return Response.ok(new JiraIssueRestModel(("Muzeeb, Is this is your first plugin ? "))).build();


Thank you In Advance.

What's in the atlassian-jira.log file?

I am running this plugin in JIRA Standalone mode. I am executing command "atlas-run" from command line. I don't see 'atlassian-jira.log' file in TARGET directory. 

I only see the following logger messages at path 'jiraissuecrud\target\container\tomcat8x\cargo-refapp-home\logs\localhost_access_log..2016-06-21.txt' - - [21/Jun/2016:15:01:47 -0400] "GET /cargocpc/index.html HTTP/1.1" 200 124
0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 - - [21/Jun/2016:15:01:58 -0400] "GET /refapp/rest/jiraissuerest/1.0/message HTTP/1.1" 404 1170
0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 - - [21/Jun/2016:15:02:08 -0400] "GET /refapp/rest/jiraissuerest/1.0/message HTTP/1.1" 404 1170

The atlassian-jira.log file is located in target/jira/home/log - check if for errors, especially when you start JIRA.

This issue is resolved. I developed this plugin using command atlas-create-refapp-plugin-module  and I executed my plugin using command atlas-run, it is running inside refapp web application. It didn't download local JIRA instance.

That said, I have packed my plugin using command atlas-mvn install and explicitly deployed plugin(jar) file to my local JIra Instance. Now I am able to invoke my custom Rest Resource.


Thanks for your help.
